PROMOTION-winning Peter Jackson is already planning for further success with Town after signing a new three-year contract as manager.
The 43-year-old McAlpine Stadium favourite had the remaining year of his old deal torn up and today signed improved terms which tie him to the club until June 30, 2007.
While a basic agreement was reached in the wake of Town's play-off final victory against Mansfield at Cardiff, fine detail had to be ratified with Town's chief executive Andrew Watson and lawyers on both sides.
"I'm absolutely delighted that everything is sorted and my new contract is signed and sealed," said Jackson, who will field trialists Apoe Sodje (brother of Efe) and ex-Sheffield Wednesday man Steven Haslam in tonight's friendly at Ossett Town (7.30).
"We have just had a fantastic season and a lot is now being expected of us, so this new contract gives me time to plan and build.
"I am really looking forward to the future of this club and I'm sure the fans are as well. We've created something good in this last 12 months and we want to keep it growing.
"I'm very happy with the squad, who have worked incredibly hard, and the couple of signings I've made this summer, and I've kept some budget back so that if I want to increase our numbers in the next few months I've got the money to fall back on."
Back for a second spell after originally managing the club in the First Division from October 1997 to May 1999, Jackson praised owner Ken Davy and the board for their support.
"The backing I've had from Ken, from Andrew Watson, the rest of the board and from all of the staff has been 100% from day one," said Jackson.
"There is a feel-good factor among the players and that spreads right through the club.
"Everyone is looking forward to the new season in Coca-Cola League I, we can't wait to get cracking against Stockport on August 7 and the message once again is: Keep the Faith!"
Jackson revealed his second-in- command, Terry Yorath, would also be signing for three years.
"Taff is my trusted friend and right-hand man and I want him alongside me all the way," said Jackson.
