|November 22 1974 Headline: "Dougall is new manager After Hennessey's shock resignation"
Tamworth Football Club directors have named a new manager a week after the shock resignation of former Derby County and Welsh international defender Terry Hennessey.
Gordon Dougall was appointed team manager at a special board meeting on Tuesday night.
A club spokesman said: "We were all shocked by the resignation of Terry Hennessey and tried to persuade him to stay on. He refused and we had no alternative but to look for a replacement. The appointment of Gordon Dougall is a sensible one. We have every faith in his ability."
Dougall is no stranger to the pressures of football management. He was manager of Atherstone Town before the club sacked him in 1968. He then took over as team boss at Bedworth, where he stayed until joining Tamworth to run the reserves a couple of years back.
Willie Taylor has been appointed official manager of the reserves.
Terry Hennessey's resignation came after a 'difference of opinion' with the board. He resigned after last Thursday night's training session, saying: "It's a matter of principle".
