GLOUCESTER CITY have confirmed the return of Tim Harris as the club’s new manager following Dave Mehew’s sacking.
Harris 54, was a goalkeeper for the Tigers before taking over as boss for two years between 2006 and 2008 and then becoming general manager.
After leaving Gloucester, he joined Newport County, now in League Two, as director of football and held the position for five years before deciding to return to the Tigers.
Harris replaces Mehew, who was sacked after the club’s 1-1 draw with North Ferriby United on Saturday, a result which left them second bottom. They are six points from safety after Tuesday’s draw at Colwyn Bay.
The returning boss said: “I left in 2010 to finish a job I had started at Newport and I have done that now, contributing to two promotions and two Wembley appearances in the space of three seasons.
“But I retain an absolute passion for Gloucester City and having completed the job I set myself at Newport, I am keen to drive City forward now.
“I have come back with a burning desire to see the club successful on and off the field.”
