Paul delighted with summer business, and no sign of slowing down just yet

Paul Cook has once again praised the support of Town's owners following the arrival of four new players in five days.

Matt Penney penned a deal this afternoon to make it a total of six new additions to the playing squad since Gamechanger 20 Ltd completed a takeover of the Club.

The other five through the door are Wes Burns, Lee Evans, Rekeem Harper, Macauley Bonne [loan] and Vaclav Hladky, with the latter signing from Salford City yesterday.

On the two latest recruits, Paul told the Club website: "I'm really pleased to have these lads with us.

"Matt has a lot of qualities that modern day full-backs need to possess. His left foot and athleticism can bring a really good balance to the team.

"Players with that appetite to get better and succeed are the players we want to sign. He has that.

"On Vaclav, I'm delighted the owners have backed us by bringing him in as well.

"The goalkeeper is such an important position on the pitch and his CV is really impressive but he's also a player that wants to continue to get better.

"They [the owners] have really helped us so far this summer and the fans will be delighted to hear that the signings haven't stopped.

"Great credit to Mark Ashton [CEO] and the board because they're working so hard.

"Things are taking shape ahead of the new season which is great. We want our supporters to enjoy matchdays and enjoy being part of this club."
