Speaking to the gathered press, Flitcroft said, "
It’s a new era. "The way we run and manage this club is key now.
It’s something we’re trying to do different. That’s why we wanted to sign. We’ve signed because things are looking right at the club.
"We’ve beaten some of the best the Championship had to offer. The management team made us successful last season. Micky Mellon and Martin Scott played a massive part in our upturn.
"The job of football management’s winning football matches.
The trio of Flitcroft, Mellon and Scott have put pen to paper on a one-year rolling contract, after guiding the Reds to safety in the Championship.
Technical Coach Martin Scott said, It’s been exciting. Obviously as the gaffer said from day one, how the lads reacted to us and the performance we got (at Peterborough) was brilliant."
"We can’t take away what the players have done for us. They’ve been absolutely outstanding.
"We are a team and the whole club’s working together now and that’s a massive positive for the future."
As far as recruitment is concerned, Reds boss Flitcroft continued, "We've been working hard behind the scenes.
Watch out for the full press conference later this evening on Barnsley Player.
"In football, your recruitment’s got to be right. If we lose a player, we lose a player. We lost John Stones and recovered, we lost Scott Golbourne but recovered. We’ve got to make sure people around can come in and do a job when we need them to."
"We can find talent and value for money. The product we got from Jacob Mellis this season – it excites me. But it’s no good recruiting this type of player if they’re not going to be influenced by good people.
"We know we’ve got to bring players in. We’ve been successful in bringing in Scott Golbourne, David Perkins, Scott Wiseman and Stephen Dawson. They’re going to be very good Championship players for the future.
"The first part of our recruitment strategy is to retain certain players then we’ll know where we’re going.
