Former Solihull Moors player/coach Gavin Cowan has become the new manager of AFC Telford United.
Cowan takes up his new role as manager at the Bucks, after operating as the club’s first-team coach since October 2016, in what was his first role after leaving Solihull Moors in the summer of 2016.
A statement on AFC Telford’s official club website read, “Gavin lives in Telford, has excellent formal qualifications in football and other sports. Gavin is passionate about football and in particular passionate about AFC Telford United, knows the club inside out and is already well known to our supporters and the local community.
Gavin has a wide network of football contacts both locally and nationally and is widely respected in football circles. This appointment also gives good continuity to build on the much-improved results on the pitch in the latter part of the season just ended and Gavin has a well thought out plan on both retained and new players, his work on this starts immediately.”
Cowan takes over the position from Rob Edwards, who had left the club the previous week.
