Nuneaton Town have been given a boost with the news that manager Tommy Wright has signed a new two-year contract at the Vanarama National League North club, whilst assistant-manager Steve Chettle and academy manager Liam O’Neill have also penned extended deals. 

Wright took over at the helm in November and immediately stimulated an upturn in fortunes.tommy wirght sat

“I was extremely proud to get the job in the first place and now I am delighted to have signed this new deal,” he said. “We’ve worked hard since November to lay down the foundations and now we have the opportunity to continue pushing the club forward.

“I’m loving every minute of it; Steve Chettle, Liam O’Neill and I have built up an excellent working relationship that is going from strength-to-strength.

Between us we have a real determination to get this club to the level that it deserves to be.

“I feel I’ve made two key signings already with my assistant, Chetts, and Liam agreeing new deals at the club.

“Chetts and I work really well together; he’s a great coach and a huge asset to me and the football club. His experience and knowledge of the game is invaluable.

“Obviously, I brought Liam O’Neill to the club after previously working with him at Corby Town. ‘Biz’ is such an infectious person; his work ethic and application is second to none and I am delighted that he will be able to continue to build the Academy.

“Stability is a big thing. There has been too much of a turnaround in players, so now I am keen to get the core of the squad signed up on new deals and then recruit well during the summer to add to what we’ve already got.

“It’s a big project, but, as I say, the foundations are in place and by everyone working together we can get to where we want to be.

“Our form since I took over in November suggests that we are a play-off side, so we need to be able to prove that and make a real challenge in 2017/18.

“There is plenty of positivity around the place right now as we look forward to what the future holds in store for us”.
