Andy Peaks Signs New 2 years Deal
We are delighted to announce that Championship winning manager, Andy Peaks, has signed a new 2 years contract to remain with the National League North bound Lambs until the end of the 2024-25 season. The popular manager indicated a few weeks ago that he was keen to stay as his 18 months contract neared completion. Andy joined the Lambs from AFC Rushden and Diamonds in February last year with the task of ensuring the Lambs escaped relegation. This was done with flying colours with Tamworth remaining unbeaten for the rest of the season under his charge.
Andy set about rebuilding the squad, signing some quality players, including securing leading scorer Dan Creaney on a contract for the first time. With Andy setting a target of the playoffs, Tamworth kicked off the season in good form, hitting the top of the table in late September and remaining there until the end of March. A tense final 2 weeks of season saw the Lambs go head-to-head with Coalville Town for the top spot and a strong final 4 games with maximum points saw Tamworth crowned Champions on a memorable day at Redditch United.
Andy, along with assistant Neil Champelovier and coach Tim Dudding have built a strong dressing room with a united squad - the best for many years according to Buster and Degsy! The club has grown, crowds have returned, and the Lambs are back in the National League North. To put into context what Andy has achieved, since he joined the Lambs, the team has only lost 7 league games out of 55 played, won 33, scored 122 goals and has a win percentage of 60%. The league points total was also the second highest achieved in the history of the club. This is great news as we go into our end of season awards on Saturday evening and prepare for life in the National league North.
Speaking about his new deal, which was signed this week, Andy said, “I am really excited to be staying at Tamworth. It is a great club with real ambition. “There are lots of fantastic people here and I have built some great relationships with the players, staff, supporters and Directors. I can now set about pulling the squad together for the next challenge.”
Chairman Bob Andrews was very pleased to get Andy tied down for another 2 years, ”Andy has done a fantastic job and we are delighted that he is staying with us for the challenge of the next league. “He has settled the club and got a good squad together, playing good football, scoring goals and doing everything we needed him to do. “It’s been a while since we have been at the level of the National league North, so it will be for all of us to support Andy and go forward.”
