Gary Powell comes on board

Former Paulton Rovers goalkeeper John Rendell has taken up the reins as the new manager.

He will be assisted by two former Rovers players Paul Tovey and Gary Powell, along with Sports Physiotherapist Amy Wheeler.

Rendell said 'Paul and Gary both have vast experience in and around the non-league scene, they both started their footballing careers off at Bristol Rovers before moving on to Bath City and Paulton Rovers during their playing days.

Gary has had lots of recent success in management and coaching, and I feel he is one of the most talented and methodical coaches about. The team will certainly benefit from his professionalism and attention to detail, and I look forward to seeing Gary test himself within his new surroundings.

Paul too has so much to offer on and off the field, we have been very close for 30 years and share the same footballing values. We are prepared to work hard ensuring we can secure a solid platform for the group to play games with a smile on their faces and without fear.

Amy has been retained from last season and all personnel within the club speak extremely highly of her work'.

Pre-season fixtures are currently being organised and will be confirmed soon.

Chairman Dave Bissex said 'After interviewing a number of quality candidates from a large number of applicants we are delighted to appoint John who was assistant manager at Yate Town last season. Both he and Paul know the club well from their playing days'.

All the management team met supporters at the club on Tuesday night.
