Neil Crowe says it is a case of refocusing hearts and minds as Bamber Bridge look to move on from the Neil Reynolds’ era, report the Lancashire Post.

The assistant boss admitted the departure last week of their former manager has had an unsettling effect on the club. And on Saturday they were beaten 3-0 away at Hyde United in the FA Trophy first qualifying round in what was the first match of new boss Micky Taylor’s tenure.

Crowe revealed it will take time for the players to re-adjust, but he is certain that the team can enjoy a successful season.

“Everybody knows Mick, everybody knows me,” said Crowe, who will continue to act as the club’s director of football. “It’s not like a stranger has come in.

“Mick’s not going to change too much – nothing needed changing. Mick will want to put his own twist on things, but it won’t happen overnight.

“What has happened over the past few weeks has had an unsettling effect on everybody at the club from top to bottom.”
