Tamworth part ways with long-standing manager Andy Morrell

Tamworth have parted ways with manager Andy Morrell after three and a half years at the club.

The Lambs rescued a late point at home to promotion hopefuls York City on Saturday which sees them sit seven points adrift of the play-offs and six above the relegation zone.

Morrell was appointed in September 2014 having previously been manager at Wrexham and led Tamworth to consecutive seventh placed finishes in the National League North and ninth place last season.

Assistant manager Mike Fowler will take charge of the first team until further notice with the Lambs set to travel to Alfreton on Saturday before hosting Blyth Spartans on Tuesday night.

A club statement read: “Tamworth Football Club can confirm that following a disappointing run of results, First Team Manager Andy Morrell has been relieved of his duties with immediate effect.

“The club would like to place on record their thanks to Andy for his contribution and efforts during his tenure, and wish him all the best for the future.

“Mike Fowler will assume responsibility for the First Team for the foreseeable future, and will lead us into this weekends National League North fixture against Alfreton Town.”
