AFC Telford have confirmed the appointment of Gavin Cowan as their new manager, with Phil Trainer his assistant.
Cowan played over 500 games, both full-time and part-time, captaining every club he played for, including AFC Telford United between 2008 and 2010. On his return to the club, he has been first-team coach since October 2016.
He replaces former Wolves defender and coach Rob Edwards, whose departure was announced at the end of last week.
Cowan told the club website: “It’s an absolute honour to be given the role of manager of such a fantastic club and one in which I am very passionate about. I’m very optimistic about the club’s future and look forward to serving the club to the best of my abilities as I did when I was a proud captain and first-team coach.”
Chairman Andy Pryce said: ‘’I am very excited and now looking forward to working with Gavin in preparing for the 2018/19 season. Gavin brings a lot of enthusiasm, knowledge of non-league football and experience of being a part of AFC Telford United.”
