|July 22 1977 Headline: "New boss for Town Club"
Tamworth Football Club have appointed a new team manager just one week after the shock resignation of Gordon Dougall.
The Southern League club's directors announced the appointment earlier this week after a meeting with ex-Walsall skipper Dave Robinson.
A central defender with Third Division Walsall for the last four years, Robinson takes over a Tamworth team boss immediately.
"The Directors are delighted with acquiring someone as knowledgeable as Dave Robinson," said Tamworth chairman Mike Tongue.
Robinson takes over at Kettlebrook as player manager, the first since the days of Tony Foster in 1972.
In his early thirties, Robinson started his playing career with Birmingham City and stayed at St Andrews for 10 years before joining Walsall in 1972.
"Dave is the ideal man for the job and are hoping for big things," said Mike Tongue.
