Following yesterday’s disappointing loss at Stourbridge and a run of results that has seen the Lambs fall into a relegation battle, Gary Smith has left his position as Manager of Tamworth Football Club by mutual consent.
Since his appointment as joint manager with Andrew Danalyszyn in January 2019, he was cruelly denied a promotion by the pandemic in 2020. A good start to the 2020/21 season was also cut short due to Covid. Sadly things have not gone as well this season and following the departure of Andrew at the start of the year Gary has not been able to halt the downward spiral despite his best efforts. His managerial record over the past 3 years is P 107 W 58 D 14 L 35 - a win rate of 54.2%
Gary is a much loved member of the TFC Family and despite this being a disappointing announcement, Gary will still be welcome at the Lamb anytime. He played for Tamworth from 1995 until 2001 making 222 appearances, scoring 70 goals. Gary returned to the Lamb as Manager of the Tamworth U21 side in July 2018 before stepping up to the first team role. Gary fully deserves his recognition as a Lambs legend and he leaves with our sincere best wishes for the future.
Further updates will be issued during the week.
