Gainsborough Trinity have named Tom Shaw as the club’s new head coach.

Shaw, 34, takes over at the Northern Premier Division side following Curtis Woodhouse’s departure at the end of February.

The former Cambridge United, Alfreton Town and Chester midfielder is set to combine the Trinity job with his role as Lincoln City’s professional development phase lead coach and Nottingham Trent University’s head of football.

Chairman Richard Kane told the club’s website:

“We are unanimous in our belief that we must operate differently in order to compete at this level and have any aspiration of progressing higher in the future, especially with the current challenging financial landscape of non-league football.

“Having met Tom, and hearing his vision for the team, the board and I are excited about this opportunity for Gainsborough Trinity, including the opportunity to develop the relationship further with our close neighbours at Lincoln City.”
