Mark Collier, manager of Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division champions Chippenham Town, has confirmed that defender Gary Horgan has agreed terms for the coming season in the National League South.  

The 40-year-old veteran previously played for Swindon Supermarine, Hungerford Town and Cirencester Town in the late 1990s.

He first joined Chippenham in 2002 and also had a second stint at Cirencester as well as turning out for Mangotsfield United and Salisbury City.

He returned to Hungerford in the summer of 2012 after serving as player-manager of Supermarine.

However, once the Crusaders moved up to the National League South, Horgan retired.

But he made a playing comeback with Chippenham after joining in September 2016.

Collier said: “Following discussions with Horgs, he has agreed to join the coaching staff alongside his playing role, his experience proved invaluable last season and I am personally happy to have retained his services.”

Both Horgan and new signing, former Weymouth player-manager Jason Matthews, will have added responsibilities to their player status and for now complete the backroom staff make up.
