Interview: Paul Cook post Matlock Town

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook has not ruled out the possibility of signing Romuald Boco after the attacking midfielder featured in the Spireites 4-1 win over Matlock Town.

Boco, an attacking midfielder released by Plymouth Argyle, played under Cook during his time in Ireland with Sligo Rovers and the Chesterfield manager did not rule out the possibility of the 29-year-old being a potential acquisition ahead of the coming campaign.

‘Romuald’s a good friend of mine, so with him not having a club there’s an opportunity for him to come here and train with us at the minute, that’s all that is.

‘We are actively looking for players as everyone knows, and if Romu can get fit and enjoy training with us then you never know in football. It’s not something we’re actively looking to do at the minute but you never know.’

With the 2014/15 league campaign beginning on August 9th, Cook affirmed his stance that the club will remain patient in its pursuit of two strikers and a midfielder.

The manager said: ‘We’re looking for players, we look for players whether it’s pre season, post season or any time throughout the season, that hasn’t changed. We’ll continue looking and if the right one comes available then hopefully we’ll get them across the line.’

Tendayi Darikwa is the latest player to be on the verge of agreeing a contract extension, following the club’s announcement of prolonged deals for Sam Morsy, Jay O’Shea, Dan Gardner and Ollie Banks to stay at the Proact.

Cook said: ‘I’ve got every faith in the squad. Rewarding lads with longer contracts is a good thing both for the club and for a player in that it gives them a little bit of security and allows them to play football without that worry.

‘One it protects us from them moving on via bosmans or cheaply and two it gives them a little bit that we believe that they’re good enough to keep us going forward.’
