Interim AFC Telford United chairman Andy Pryce is thrilled Gavin Cowan’s ‘infectious spirit’ has proved the doubters wrong, the Shropshire Star say.
Some questioned Cowan’s lack of any prior managerial experience when he was appointed Bucks chief last summer, in the wake of three successive seasons battling against relegation in National League North.
But hiring the man who served as a coach under both Rob Edwards and Rob Smith has certainly paid off.
“When we interviewed for the manager’s job we wanted continuity,” added Pryce.
“Gav’s experience with the squad from the 18 months he was with them beforehand was invaluable.
“His spirit is infectious, so we are delighted that his hard work is paying off.”
