Gloucester City have announced James Rowe as the club’s new manager.
The 36-year-old former Aldershot assistant manager has joined the club on a full-time basis until the conclusion of the 2021/2022 season.
Co-chairman Alex Petheram said: “We see him very much as the missing piece of the puzzle for the long-term. James is a young manager, so different styles, different types of thinking, different types of management.
“The key thing for us was someone who’s used to full-time football and gone through the transition of part-time to full-time, someone that’s been involved in the highest level of English football in some form of capacity, and James has got that from his days at Birmingham and West Ham.”
Rowe said: “I was really impressed with the vision of where the club wants to be, and the potential here is huge, with coming back to the city. I’m really proud that I’m hopefully going to be part of leading the team back out at Meadow Park.”
