Curwood and Proctor appear on BBC Radio Lancashire

4 March 2015

Pair discussed a number of Cod Army related topics

Town Chief Executive Steve Curwood and striker Jamie Proctor both appeared on BBC Radio Lancashire’s sports show between 6-7pm this evening.

The pair discussed a number of topics and gave their opinions on how the Club have competed so far during their first season in England’s third tier.

Curwood spoke in-depth about how his journey with the Club began, as well as where the future lies with the new training facility at Poolfoot Farm.

Proctor, who joined the Cod Army from Crawley Town over the summer, admitted Graham Alexander played a massive part in him teaming up with the Club.

Speaking about Town’s start to the season, Curwood said: “The positions are irrelevant at the moment because it’s so tight.

"Hopefully we can put two or three wins together and we'll be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.

“"We've had a good season to-date but we'll be very pleased if we can end up a little bit higher."

He added: "It's coming up to my eighth year with Fleetwood. I was the first true full time employee of the Club.

"I was offered the job when we were in the Unibond Premier, and given the opportunity I persuaded my wife I had to have a go.

"Knowing the chairman's ambition and where he wanted to take the Club, it was one of those I couldn't turn down."

Proctor believes Fleetwood have adapted well to life in League One and sees no reason why they can’t go on and achieve success once more.

"The quality of players in League One now is very high and that's why the division is so tight.

"The teams at the top have the quality to kick-on, but on average the quality is pretty similar.

"The football we've played this year has been very good and of a consistent standard.

"We'll keep trying to progress and hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later until we'll be in the Championship."

Talk was also rife about Town’s new training complex which was opened by Fleetwood Town’s juniors on Monday.

"We hope to have the new training ground completed fully by the end of this year.

"It's going to transform the Club. We do need our own facility to allow us to develop as a Club.

"It will take us to the next level and we'll become a different Club to what we are now.

"It'll mean we're back in the community, and will allow our players to see a lot more of the local school children."
