The Lambs are pleased to announce that Dale Belford has been appointed First Team Manager of the club; he will be assisted by Scott Lindsey. The management team who ended last season keeping the club in the Football Conference Premier Division have signed a one year deal and are already working on assembling the squad for the 2013/14 campaign.
Dale has twice in the last three seasons ended the season keeping the team in the FC Premier Division and will now have the chance to build his own squad. He was the clubs goalkeeper in 1989 when the club won the FA Vase and has made appearances for the Lambs during the last four decades which must be a unique record. Having made over a 1000 appearances with various clubs during a long career his vast experience of the game and players has served him well during his two caretaker manager spells at the club.
Scott Lindsey is also a former player who after playing for the Lambs went onto have a good career in the Football League and in Non League. He has had coaching positions at Lincoln City and Gillingham and left the Gills to take this opportunity to break into a full time management role.
Details of the new signings will follow in due course. We all wish Dale and Scott every success and with a Tammie now in charge of his home town club we hope the supporters will get behind the new management team and make the 2013/14 season one to remember.
On of Dales first appointments was to confirm that Katie Andrews has agreed to continue as the clubs sports therapist for next season.
