|07 February 1992 Headline: It's Sam at The Lamb
Tamworth Football Club this week made a bold statement about their belief in the future by becoming one of only a handful of non-league clubs in Britain to appoint a full time manager.
Former Wolves boss Sammy Chung took over the Tamworth hotseat last weekend and immediately set his sights on waking up a club he regards as a sleeping giant.
Chung, who has had a mass of experience both here and abroad, is delighted to be Tamworth's new boss and he has very ambitious aims for the Kettlebrook club.
"I want to be in the GM Conference in five years because that is the sort of level Tamworth deserve. They have big support, a talented and enthusiastic backroom staff and a very ambitious chairman and board. When all these are combined it makes the club a tremendous proposition for the future.," he said.
Chung's first major job will be to pick the team for tomorrow's home tie with Rushden who have a lot of ability but Chung and his assistant Frank Dwane will be hoping that the new mood of optimism at the club will hit the players and result in the club?s first win in nine games.
In the same week, Graham Smith was appointed manager of Atherstone United.
