ANDY Todd is already looking ahead to two fixtures next season after putting pen to paper on a new deal with the Reds.
The Nottingham-born winger, who has signed for a year with a year option, is eyeing the Notts County and Mansfield League Two away matches where his family should be able to make the short trip to watch him. The fixtures are out on 22 June.
"Now I have signed, I just can't wait for next season - I am sure the manager, other players and fans are the same," said the 27-year-old who was on loan with Stanley at the end of last season.
"With being from Nottingham, I will be looking for those two games. I was at Notts County for five years from being 10-years- old and Mansfield is close so it will be nice for my family and friends to come and watch - with the visiting team winning!
"But I am looking forward to playing at some new grounds and on some nice pitches and hopefully helping the club continue going forward.
"We have earned the right to be a league club and now we need to build on this, establish the club in the league and strive to achieve more."
With the signing of Sean Doherty and, with Gary Roberts at the club, the competition for the two wing spots will be fierce.
"I think I did well last season when I came here," said Todd who joined from Burton in January. "I was the final piece of the jigsaw and scored some goals and I kept my place with the way I was playing and we won the league.
"Hopefully I will be able to play regularly and we will have another good season.
"I am not saying we will do what Doncaster, Yeovil and Carlisle have done and fly up the leagues straight away but we have got to try and be up there challenging."
