RICHARDSON NO REGRETS IN TAKING SECOND CHANCE
LEAM Richardson has no regrets after swapping the manager’s job at Accrington to be No.2 at Chesterfield.
The 33-year-old replaces Tommy Wright as Paul Cook’s assistant at the Spireites, ending eight years at Stanley. He guided the Lancashire club to safety after Cook left Accrington in October, but he says joining his ex-colleague is a step in the right direction.
“Career-minded people and people in football will realise this is a very good move,” said Richardson.
“Certain people will question it but I see the bigger picture because I’m only 33 and I have a lot to learn.
“Once the question got asked and I sat down with my family it quickly became apparent this would be an exciting move.
“You can see that this club is going in the right direction and it needs to get there quickly. I had a phone call and I quickly got my thoughts together and with my own CV in mind, it was an easy decision.
“I’ve been at Accrington for a long time, Chesterfield is a very exciting, big club. My relationship with Paul speaks for itself. The rapport we had was great and his work ethic is second to none.”
GOOD MOVE: Richardson
