Gloucester City have announced that former Eastleigh manager Chris Todd will take over as manager on an 18-month deal, officially taking charge of the Tigers after the Billericay Town game on Saturday.
Upon his appointment, Todd had this to say:
“I’m really excited about the challenge ahead. For me personally, it’s a real honour with the club looking to come home, to think that I’ll be the man to do that.
“Even though it’s very much a family and volunteer-run club, Gloucester City is an ambitious club and you can tell that after meeting the board and hearing their vision for it. It is a blow obviously to the club with the previous manager leaving but that’s football and as one door closes another inevitably opens.
“With the vision the board have and me coming in, hopefully that will signal the start of a new era for the football club. With my experiences, I believe I’ve got a lot to offer and I cannot wait to get started.”
