Accrington Stanley veteran Paul Mullin gives us a guide to his team-mates.

If I've got the largest head in the Football League, then Bav must have the smallest head! He's a great shot-stopper but was very unlucky with injuries last year. It was frustrating for him, but he's good to have around the dressing room. He's a really bubbly character, absolutely barmy. But you need characters like that.

It should be interesting to watch all the lads fighting for the goalkeeping jersey this season. Kenny's been sharing a lot of the pre-season games with Ian. He's got a good physique for a goalkeeper and he's surprised me so far with his shot-stopping. Already, he's gelled in well with the rest of the lads, although it can be difficult to understand him at times with his Scottish accent!

Martin's a really nice lad, really quiet and that's probably because of his age. There's a lot of big characters in the dressing room. I'm sure when he gets a bit older with a bit more experience, then we'll probably see another side of Martin. He's been around the scene here for a couple of years and I've seen his goalkeeping improve in that time. He's definitely one for the future.

The gaffer says he's the best attacking full-back in the division - he's definitely the best free-kick taker at the club. I've got a good understanding with Cav because I've played with him for years. He's been at the club too long because his hair is starting to fall out. That just happens when you are at Accrington! But he's a good, calming influence in the dressing room for his age.

Leam's got bags of experience. He's a good talker in the dressing room and on the pitch. We need that at times. He's a good lad, some of his tackles on the pitch make me wince, I must admit. He's an all-action full-back and likes putting his foot in. His goalscoring record is poor though! He fancies himself as a forward but he's shocking. I keep telling him to get back in defence.

Rocky had a great season last year. In fact, I voted for him as Players' Player of the Year. His strengths have come on. He's worked hard on his physique and he's got pace as well. For a centre-half, that's a real asset. His distribution has improved. I can see him look up sometimes and now I know he is going to hit it within 50 yards of me - rather than 100 yards! That's a bit unfair, but he was great for us last year. I'm actually quite surprised that nobody came in for him - he really was that good.

My room-mate. It was an up and down year for Proccy last season. He was probably our best player for the first month, then he had a bit of a lull, but in the last couple of months he was outstanding. You wouldn't like to play against him. As regards his hair, he says it's strawberry blonde and not ginger - but I'm not having it.

Phil works hard on his physique - or should I say beach physique! He came in from holiday last year and I don't know where he got his pecs from, but they were outstanding. He loves his sunbed as well. But seriously, he's a terrific defender, whether it's at centre-half or full-back. He attacks the ball very well and is good in the air for someone his size. He's got a year of Football League experience under his belt, which will stand him in good stead.

Our Benin international is a quiet lad, but his English is very good now. He says its not as good as it could be, but it's superb. A lot of the scouse lads have took him under their wing and he's moved into his own house now, which will suit him and settle him down more. Rommy is one for the future. His ability in training is superb and, for someone his size, his strength is quite surprising. He's also surpremely fit, possibly the fittest lad in the side when he's 100 percent. Nobody can catch him in the running.

A model professional and someone a lot of the lads should catch up and try to emulate. Browny has got a lot of experience. He offers the team a lot and all the lads respect his ability as a player, whether it's in midfield or up front. He scored some great goals - and important goals - last season, especially towards the end of the season. The one against his former club Hereford sticks out.

Jay's got a great engine on him and he scorss a fair few goals. Proccy got those two goals against Macclesfield that helped keep us up, but Jay scored some important goals throughout the season as well. It must be horrible playing against him - he's snapping at your heels all the time, wanting the ball, and always moving. He's another one where a year in the Football League will do him good and he could certainly play at a higher level.

An absolute express-train down the wings.

As a defender, it must be a really scary prospect because Shaun's got pace to burn and ability with the ball at his feet as well.

Perhaps he needs to work on his crossing, but he was out on the left wing a lot last season. But he's got a heck of a lot of ability and it's a big yea for Shaun because if he takes things on the next level, he'll be one to watch.

He did great against MK Dons in the last game of the season. He's got a lot of pace and ability and he whipped in some great balls on his left foot. At times, we missed a natural left footer last season. Obviously, he's got to grow and get bigger physically. But there's a lot of good attributes to have a successful career if he's willing to work hard at it which I'm sure he is.

Leighton suffered with injuries last season. It's a shame because when we did play up front together, we had a good understanding. In the game at Macclesfield, I'm sure we'd have won that game had Leighton not come off injured because we were causing them all sorts of problems and he scored his first goal for the club. It was a bit frustrating for him, but I know he's worked hard this summer on being fit and I think he'll have big part to play this season.

I played against Paul when he was at Chester.

He'll be good for Jay and Proccy because he's got a lot of experience in the middle of the park and very rarely gives the ball away. A good tigerish midfielder, he covers the ground well and, whenever he gets possession, he just keeps it nice and simple. One of the fittest lads in the squad.

Milesy is a good addition to the squad and gives us a lot more options creativity-wise. He showed everyone his ability in that massive game against Macclesfield last season. We just struggled to contain him. Wherever the gaffer decides to play him, out wide or up front, he'll make us stronger going forward. He's got two good feet and knows where the goal is.

Marks's made a really big impression. He played in all three games in Scotland and was probably our best player on the trip. He's only young, but he reads the game really well. Him and Rocky will be a decent partnership. Also in his locker is the fact he's a threat at set-pieces. But his priority is stopping teams at the back and I'm sure he'll do well.

I've played aganist Roscoe a few years ago when we were in the Conference. At the time, he reminded me a bit of our former striker Lutel James. He's got bags of pace and is a good finisher as well. He's provided something different to what we've already got at the club. He's settled in at Accrington really well and is a nice lad to have around.

We scored a lot of goals together when Lee was last with us at Accrington - so it's nice to have him back. He's a bustling striker and will really unsettled defenders. He's had his injury problems, but hopefully he'll be fit and firing on all cylinders when the season starts.
