The Spireites manager, Paul Cook, is being fully backed by Chesterfield’s chief executive Chris Turner.

In a week of change at the Proact Stadium, Turner has put his faith in Cook’s judgement and believes that he is the man to take the club forward.

Speaking to Spireites Player, the chief executive said: “One of Paul’s [Cook] remits when we brought him to the club was to change the philosophy of the club.

“Paul sat down with myself and the chairman and obviously gave us his thoughts and we’ve backed him 100 per cent.” 

Both Tommy Wright and Mark Crossley left the club earlier this week, allowing Chesterfield to sign Leam Richardson from Accrington Stanley as a managerial assistant to Cook. 

“He’s [Richardson] an experienced young coach, he’s done extremely well to keep Accrington in the Football League,” said Turner.

“A new manager comes in, wants his ideas, wants his staff around him - gives him the best support,”

The chief executive is confident that the changes are being made with the club's best interests at heart. He said: “Amongst other people that’ll be joining the football club in the next few weeks, I think we’ll have a football management team throughout the club that’s going to take this football club forward.”
