21 September 1979 – Headline: “New boss named today?”
Later today, Tamworth hope to announce the name of their new manager to succeed Dave Robinson, who had his contract cancelled by mutual agreement earlier this week. The man Tamworth want is at present in charge of a Southern League club and was talking to the board of that club last night. And although chairman Mike Tongue was not prepared to name names while the negotiations were still in hand, he dismissed suggestions that the new Kettlebrook boss would be former Atherstone player-manager Gary Brown. The new manager in charge at Tamworth will be a manager only, not a player too, as Robinson was. The former Birmingham City and Walsall defender still had a year of his contract to run. But the agreement was torn up with the blessing of both parties. Mr Tongue said: “We are sorry to see Dave go, but he agrees with us that the time has come for a fresh managerial approach.” Robinson’s departure came within hours of the shock FA Cup defeat at the hands of Moore Green and Simms is in charge of the team at Worksop on Wednesday night. It is hoped that the new man will be with the side at Lancaster tomorrow taking full charge for Monday night’s game against Nuneaton Borough.
