First Team Management Announcement

Tuesday May 22, 2018


 Trio confirmed for promotion push!

 

 Tamworth Football Club are delighted to confirm the appointment of Tim Harris as Director of Football. This will be an integral role within an exciting new first team football management structure, as the club aims for immediate promotion back to step two in 2018/19.

 Tim Harris brings with him a wealth of experience. Notable achievements include overseeing the rise of Newport County from Southern League to League Two, progressing to The FA Cup second round proper with three different clubs, and getting to the final of The FA Trophy in 2012. Other than Newport County, UEFA A Licence holder Harris has occupied the dugout at Forest Green Rovers, Gloucester City on two occasions, and finished last season with Redditch United. He has overseen promotions from step three with two different clubs, and has exceptional knowledge of the level that the club will be competing at next season.

 An important part of this new role will be making use of Tim’s vast network of contacts. Harris has as strong pedigree in player recruitment and development and played a role in moves for QPR and Northern Ireland international Connor Washington (Newport County to Peterborough United), Sheffield United first team regular Lee Evans (Newport County to Wolverhampton Wanderers), and Luke Thomas who made his EFL Championship debut for Derby County last season, amongst several others.

 In the new first team football management structure, Mike Fowler will be retained as Head Coach. Despite a disappointing end to last season, Fowler’s work ethic, passion for the club, and potential are attributes that the club wishes to support and develop further. Key to the decision was Fowler’s existing working relationship with Harris. Mike has worked with Tim extensively over the past fifteen years, and has captained three different clubs under his leadership.

 The final part of the new first team football management structure will see former club captain Paul Green return to The Lamb in a player/coach capacity. Fans favourite Green needs no introduction, having represented the club on more than 100 occasions. Green enjoyed a solid season at step one with Solihull Moors in 2017/18, and will have a positive impact at the club both on and off the pitch.

 From a squad perspective, a full released and retained list will be issued this evening, with new arrivals due to be announced shortly
