Alan Pook has been back in the Worthing hot-seat barely two days but he has already set about rebuilding the club.

Pook has returned as joint-manager alongside Danny Bloor, who oversaw the Rebels' relegation from Ryman premier last season.

His return was announced following a board meeting on Monday afternoon but Pook has already revealed plans for new signings, new coaches, a new reserve team and new commercial managers.

Oh yes, and he is also desperate to get the club back to a position where they are knocking on the door of Conference south.

Pook said: "I have already been negotiating with three young players, two who have played for me before as youngsters and one who is only 20.

"Within the next month I hope to be able to release the three names. All three will be very good signings and all are 20 or under.

"We will be introducing a second team next season to go with the youth team. I am fed up of good quality young players who are not quite ready for the first team being lost to other clubs.

"I am hopeful Graham and Micky Farmer will be joining us on the coaching staff. With (youth coaches) Bob Bantock and Ian Hutchings and the current coaching staff we will be very strong off the pitch.

"We also have a new chairman (Dave Agnew) who is going to bring a different viewpoint to things. We have a new structure with the board. We are looking for fresh blood and hope to appoint a pair of commercial managers to get things going."

The position of former Albion skipper Paul Rogers, who was coach to Bloor last season, will be discussed soon and Pook also revealed skipper Jamie Lawrence may also be leaving as he wants to move into management.

Pook is determined to build a side around the club's group of highly promising youngsters.

He added: "Anyone who wants to watch Worthing next year will see good, young players starting as first choice players.

"We will give them the confidence to go and express themselves. They will be very fit and they will play exciting football.

"We have got to get back to being one of the top sides in the south as we were two years ago when we got to the last 16 in the Trophy and when sides feared us when they drew us in cup competitions. We want to do that with locally based players and that is why we have invested heavily in youth."
