Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I have always had high standards. That has stemmed from my family background and I have taken those principles into management. I was the same as a player, very ambitious and determined to become the best I can.
“I worked hard to get the best out of myself as a player and I am exactly the same as a manager. You cannot have regrets and not give your all. You have to try and be the best you can be.
“I have belief in my ability and always approach things very professionally and I expect the players to be the same. Even when I was in part-time football at Nantwich and Northwich I tried to implement the right things and do the things right by the players.
“It was always my ambition to get back into the pro game but my grounding at Nantwich and Northwich was very good. I used to blow the balls up and sweep the dressing rooms outs. I enjoyed the challenge and I enjoy the challenge now.
He added: “In the full-time game there is certainly more support staff, and you can delegate more and trust them to take some of that work on and that is important. Everything I have achieved in the game has been through a great team effort.”
