New assistant-manager Leam Richardson believes his knowledge of League Two will be a great asset to the Spireites.

Richardson, who quit as manager of Accrington Stanley to become Paul Cook's new deputy, gave his first interview to Spireites Player after arriving at the Proact on Wednesday morning. He said: "I know the league inside out because I've been in it for eight or nine years. 

"It's a tough league so you've got to compete and you've got to compete well. I think we'll do that strongly. It's an exciting time to come in and I'm really looking forward to it. 

"The club has got a great infrastructure and there are some very good people working here. The club needs to be knocking on the door of the Championship and hopefully we can do that."

Richardson worked with Cook previously at Accrington and he feels they work well together. He commented: "I think he's got a really good work ethic and really good beliefs. They're very similar to mine, which makes for a good blend. I'm young and enthusiastic and I like to think I do my job well."
