Bradford (Park Avenue) have announced former Kettering Town manager Marcus Law as their new boss on an interim basis.
Law, who will be assisted by Lee Fowler, has over 20 years of managerial experience and spent the last five seasons with Kettering, gaining promotion last season to the National League North by winning the Southern League Central title before resigning in June.
A former professional goalkeeper, Law holds his UEFA B licence and club owner Gareth Roberts said: “Marcus is regarded as having steadied the footballing affairs at Kettering after years of financial turmoil whilst building the club back up through the non-league pyramid.
“He has a good record of developing players playing winning football. After yesterday’s news about Garry (Thompson) and a game against Kidderminster this weekend, we felt we had to act quickly so that we can plan whilst still having time to make changes to the squad.”
Lee Fowler joins the club after enjoying a long career as a professional footballer himself, playing for a host of League clubs and earning 12 Wales Under-21 caps. He has also experience as both a manager and assistant manager, having guided Ilkeston Town to the Midland Football Premier Division title last season.
