Tamworth appoint Kettering's Marcus Law as new manager

Marcus Law has signed a three-year deal to become Tamworth boss, just eight months after he took over at Kettering.

The 35-year old former Bristol Rovers goalkeeper has previously had spells in charge of Coventry Sphinx, Racing Club Warwick, Quorn and Barwell.

The Lambs ended the Blue Square Bet Premier season in the caretaker control of Dale Belford, securing safety with a 2-1 final day win over Forest Green.

Law had guided Kettering to a mid-table finish, ending the campaign in 14th.

The Coventry-born coach had his playing career ended prematurely by a hip injury during a spell with the Sacramento Knights in the United States, while his Football League career consisted of two appearances for Bristol Rovers in the 1994/5 season.

Arguably his biggest achievement as a manager was winning the Midland Alliance with Barwell, leading the side to their highest position ever in the non-league pyramid.

The Lambs will now be hoping for greater stability after a season that saw their long-serving manager Gary Mills move on to York City, and his successor Des Lyttle resigning shortly before they clinched survival.
