Jim Bentley says he is happy with the way his squad is taking shape ahead of the new season.
Bentley has secured a number of signings in the last few days and after a week of training says things are looking good with the first pre season fixture at Bamber Bridge coming up.
He said: “It has been a tough summer and there have been lots and lots of phone calls but things are looking pretty good now. We have brought in some good players and we are still looking hard to bring in more before the season starts.
“Defence is definitely the priority and I would like another front man in the squad but we will see what happens.
The lads have come back in good spirits and are looking fresh and sharp and all the new boys are settling in really well.
“The spirit is there already and we are all looking forward to the friendly games and getting back into action.
“We have a good set of pre season games that will provide us with good tests and we are looking forward to them.’’
