New Bucks boss Gavin Cowan has urged supporters to back the club as he looks
to build a team that makes “the community proud”
Cowan was appointed the Bucks new boss on Friday afternoon following the
departure of Rob Edwards last week. Former Bucks hero Phil Trainer who famously
scored the winning play off final goal seven years ago today in 2011 has been
appointed assistant manager and Jake Roe will remain as the club’s physio.
"I want to bring big crowds, lots of buzz around the place. I want
to see supporters in the bar afterwards mixing with the players.
"It is important that we link in with the community as the
community is a huge part of the history of the football
"I really want to encourage people to come and watch their football
club and be proud of what we are going to try and achieve.
"Win, lose or draw, they will see a team that will leave everything
out on the pitch. And I think that's all supporters ask for.
"That is what me and the rest of the staff will be demandind.
The new Bucks boss has moved quickly to secure the signing of Shane
Sutton & Ross White and remains in discussions with several of the current
squad about remaining at the club for next year
"All the players we will be bringing in will be aware of what is expected
of them and should feel honored to play for this club. Phil are I are very
proud to take up this position and very honored to be the management team at
AFC Telford United”
"For my first job as a manager, it is something that I am really
looking forward to and I genuinely believe that I am the man to take it
forward and I think in months to come the supporters will see that as well
and will want to come back and support the club that they know and love."
