BAMBER Bridge manager Mick Taylor is pleased with the way things have gone since he took over the reins more than a month ago.
Taylor, pictured, who was first team-coach, stepped up to the role following the departure of Neil Reynolds to FC United of Manchester.
Neil Crowe returned to the Irongate dugout as assistant manager to Taylor. He now combines his new role with his job as the Evo-Stik League club's director of football.
Speaking at a fans forum Taylor said: "Think it's gone well. It's probably gone better than I thought it would if I'm honest, the way everyone at the club has acted has filled me with optimism."
It's a view shared by Crower. He told fans: "We've been up against it with injuries and outgoings. That said, it's certainly going okay, and the lads are doing really well so far.
"Nobody has shown us up in any game and we've shown we are good enough to compete."
"When you see the squad together you know they're all in it as one. They're a unit and all work so hard for each other. When you've got that you've always got a chance in every game."
Taylor added: "This is the pinnacle for me, I call Bamber Bridge FC my home and I've always wanted to do this. I want to make everyone at the club proud."
