Scholars Land Former Lambs Boss

Former Tamworth manager Marcus Law was unveiled as the new manager of EVO-STIK Northern Premier League Chasetown on Monday.

The Scholars moved quickly to land the 39-year-old, pictured, following the departure of former manager Craig Harris on Saturday night in the wake of their 2-0 defeat at Coalville Town in First Division South.

The former Scholars FA Cup hero and skipper had been in charge for two and a half years before standing down after a run of just two wins in 17 league fixtures since September.

Scholars officials said they were "delighted" to secure the services of Law who guided the Lambs to the third round of the FA Cup in 2012 and has also managed Coventry Sphinx, Racing Club Warwick, Quorn, Barwell and Kettering.

Law has been scouting for a number of Football League clubs this season and from the statement issued by the club announcing his appointment, he can expect a warm reception from his new supporters.

The Scholars said: "The management committee met with Marcus, who has an excellent Non-League managerial record and it was clear he shares the same ambitions as the football club.

"His local knowledge and background of managing at this level as well as his experience in the Conference Premier made him a standout candidate. He knows Chasetown very well, having managed opponents against the Scholars over several seasons."

Law, who takes charge of his first training session on Tuesday ahead of his first game at the helm on Wednesday night at Leek Town in the quarter-finals of the Staffordshire Senior Cup, had his playing career cut short by a hip injury during a spell with the Sacramento Knights in the United States after playing for Bristol Rovers.

As a manager, one of his biggest achievements to date was winning the Midland Alliance League with Barwell. In the process, he led the club to their highest ever position in the Non-League pyramid as well as a semi-final appearance in the FA Vase while setting an unbeaten league record of 61 games.
