Colne’s Jamie Cooke believes he is at a club well capable of achieving promotion to the Northern Premier Division – just as soon as they are allowed to resume.
With the 2020/21 season almost certainly set to follow the Step 2 null and void outcome, the Reds will have to start again when the action resumes.
Speaking as part of his interview with this site, 19-year-old midfielder Cooke said:
“I think what has really kept me going is actually that uncertainty, and keeping ready, keeping myself fit and motivated to be ready to go again. It can just come back whenever, you never really know what’s going to happen, so just keeping fit and keeping my mind occupied, and focused on that next time I’m back out on the field.”
On his personal goals in the near future, the former Fleetwood Town prospect said: “I’m really looking towards going back into professional football and into that full-time environment again. I really enjoyed it when I was there and I kind of miss it.
“That would be the goal, and just to enjoy myself really. That’s the most important thing, because if I’m not enjoying myself, then something’s not going right!
“Obviously focusing on what we’ve got at stake now with Colne and pushing for promotion, which would be great for the club and great for me personally. I think we can really do that if the league carries on.”
