Deadline day signing Andy Procter was delighted to pull on the Stanley shirt again against Tranmere and is looking to get stronger and stronger with every game he plays.

The former skipper returned to the club last week following his release by Bury, signing a two year contract.

Now he’s aiming to make up for lost time and get himself up to speed out on the field.

“I just need to get some more games under belt and get my match fitness where I want it to be and I would like to think I would be a big asset to the club,” he explained.

“It has been tricky. I went from one manager (John Coleman) in nine years who knew me inside out to having five managers in two-and-a-half seasons.

“I was a captain at both Preston and Bury but managerial changes meant differing opinions – football would be boring if every manager liked the same players – but it has made me mentally strong and I have the belief in my own ability.

“I believe I am a good player at this level and it’s up to me to prove it and get us up the table.”
