STANLEY'S new player/coach Paul Cook admitted his new role in Stanley's return to full-time football meant he was more worried than usual when pre-season began.
"I was a bit nervous before the start of the first session, to be honest," said the former Wolves and Burnley midfielder.
"It is completely different to just coming in and doing your training and then going home. But I have been given a great opportunity here. I want to carry on playing as long as I can but I am also looking forward to the coaching side of it.
"I'm looking forward to working with John (Coleman) and Jimmy (Bell). We always wanted to be a full-time club and it is great for us to be on the management team at a club like this.
"The chairman has delivered the facilities, which are second to none, and there is every opportunity to be successful. It is all about the team now - it is down to the players. We will look after them and coach them the best we can and they can bring the success on the pitch."
And he says there might be a couple of new faces by the opening game of the season at home to Burton.
"The chairman has backed the manager to the hilt and we are happy with the squad we have got. But we are always looking for players and we might add one or two more before the start."
