Grantham Town have announced that Richard Thomas has been appointed as the club’s new manager with immediate effect.
Thomas, who lives in Nottingham, brings a wealth of experience with him at all levels, and was most recently Assistant Manager to Kevin Nolan at Notts County. He will take charge of the side for tomorrow’s Evo-Stik fixture at Matlock Town, with his first home match on Saturday, when we welcome Halesowen Town to The Meres for the FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round tie.
As part of Thomas’ arrival, Dennis Rhule has been promoted to the position of Assistant Manager. Rhule is obviously a familiar face to all Gingerbreads having served under numerous managers over the years, including being part of the managerial team that won the Evo-Stik Premier Division One South in 2012 and being an integral part of last season’s run to the Playoff Final.
