Chasetown Appoint New Manager


Law appointed new Chasetown boss.

Evo Stik Division One South side Chasetown have appointed former Tamworth manager Marcus Law as their new boss just two days after sacking Craig Harris.

Law will join the Scholars with plenty of non-league experience having been in charge of Coventry Sphinx, Quorn, Barwell, Kettering and Tamworth.

In a club statement it read: “Chasetown Football Club are today delighted to announce the appointment of Marcus Law as first team manager at the Scholars Ground succeeding Craig Harris.

“The management committee met with Marcus, who has an excellent non-league managerial record and it was clear he shares the same ambitions as the football club. His local knowledge and background of managing at this level as well as his experience in the Conference Premier made him a standout candidate.

“He will take part in his first training session at the club on Tuesday evening & will be in charge of the Scholars for the first time, when they visit Leek Town in the Staffordshire Senior Cup the following night.”

Law was in charge of Conference North side Tamworth back in 2012, when the Lambs faced Premier League outfit Everton in the third round of the FA Cup losing 2-0 at Goodison Park.

Former boss Harris was in his second season at the club having led them to a 12th place finish last year, but only two wins in 17 games this season led to his removal after the 2-0 defeat at Coalville on Saturday.
