Tring Corinthians have announced Colin Phillips as their new first team manager for the 2015/16 Spartan South Midlands Division Two campaign.

Phillips returns to the club after four successful years as reserve team manager at Tring Athletic and is hoping to bring fresh impetus to the Corinthians, with a focus on nurturing quality local players.

Phillips will be assisted by Kerry Gordon and James Cotterill, with stalwart Lee Groves stepping into a role as player/coach.

The coaching team is also boosted by Gareth Jackson and Steve Punshon who will work on a structured programme for pre-season.

Phillips said: “I had a fantastic time at Athletic but am now really excited to be taking on this challenge at Corries. I want to develop a culture that embraces local talent and realises the club’s potential.”

Pre-season training will begin on Thursday, July 2 and interested local players should contact Phillips on 07590 477602 or email him at Colinbphillips@hotmail.com.

The club is also looking for sponsorship and to recruit a reserve team manager. Please contact Gary Mendham at 07886 528214 for further details.
