"As well as this, there really is a vibrant feelgood factor around the Club at the minute and this has resulted in the whole town being encapsulated by our journey already.

"In my role as Assistant Manager, this is something that I am passionate about nurturing. Everyone can be assured that together with Danny Whitaker, I will give everything I have to formulate a First Team squad which is befitting a Club of this stature.

"Like everyone at the Club, I am committed to giving the fans something which they can be proud of and the only way to ensure this is through the development of a winning mentality which breeds success.

"I can't wait to get going and playing my part in what we all hope will be the start of something incredible."

Director of Football Robbie Savage added to this, by formally welcoming Anthony to the Club:
