JOHN Coleman promised Stanley will have no fear when they pit their wits against the Conference elite next season.
The Stanley boss rates his latest achievement as the pinnacle of a career on the pitch and in the dug-out.
And he boomed: "I would like to think we can go into the Conference with no fear. We want to do ourselves justice and I know I have a set of players who will die for this club.
"We won three trophies last season and we were keen not to do a Liverpool because they flopped after doing the same. We knew what our ambition was - and that was winning the Unibond League title.
"Thankfully we are now going into pastures new and it will be one hell of an adventure for fans and players. A change is as good as a rest and after the break we will be ready for that change!"
Coleman claims he was calmness personified throughout Stanley's Unibond League romp - until it came to the crunch against Altrincham!
He added: "It wasn't as dramatic as when we won the First Division because that was truly all-or-nothing. If we hadn't beaten Altrincham, there were still four games to go and win it again.
"This success has been achieved over a matter of weeks and months and the way we have played I could only ever see one outcome. But they always say the last step over the line in a marathon is the hardest, and I'm just glad we got over the finishing line in front of our own fans.
"We have been there to be shot at all season and no-one has done us any favours by rolling over and dying.
"People can praise me all they want but it's the players who deserve all the credit because they have been magnificent. The manager doesn't put the ball in the net, head them off the line or take penalties, so I would only like to take so much praise."
