Accrington Stanley fans' surprise at Cook exit
ACCRINGTON Stanley supporters have been expressing their surprise at manager Paul Cook’s imminent departure to Chesterfield.
Cook is set to be appointed as the Spireites’ new boss today – just eight months after taking charge of Stanley. His exit has brought sadness to many supporters, including Lancashire Telegraph columnist Stephen Lowe.
“I think a lot of people will be surprised,” Lowe said.
“I think he will look back in years to come and wish he had finished the job he started here. It’s a job half done and that’s sad.
“He had us playing some great football, I know the results haven’t gone our way in the last few matches but I will be sad to see him go.
“I don’t think Chesterfield are a much bigger club than us, they’re not a massive club, although I know he will have more money to spend.
“I wish him well. I won’t bear him any ill will, he’s a nice bloke.”
