Tamworth FC changed hands in dramatic style on Tuesday night with a new board and managerial chief was announced bringing a fresh success to the success starved Lamb club.
As widely predicted Dave Seedhouse and Peter Nicholls. Who engineered five years success at Atherstone United, have taken over the helm of managing the team and they will be backed by a new three-man board chaired by former town favourite John "Donkey" Bayliss. "We haven't been able to discuss details with Garry (Meads) yet, but we hope he will stay at the club in some capacity."

The future of Barry Meads is still uncertain after Tuesday night's takeover.
Meads, who had been manager for just a few months, has been on holiday this week and still doesn't know his position at the new look Tamworth FC.
There has been some talk of Meads taking over as youth manager but as a youth team is not expected for another 12 months it is hard to see what position he will be able to hold in the meantime.
For many years Meads has been the club's trainer and spongeman and it was not been ruled out that he will once again revert to this position should he wish to.
