Andy Parry and Rich Joyce have been announced as Thornbury Town's new management team.

They replace Jason Rees and assistant Gary Kemp who stood down earlier this month.

Andy has experience of playing in the Conference and Northern Premier leagues. He has been a coach at various academies as well as at Manor Farm and Hallen.

Richard has stepped up from coaching the U18s. He has experience of working in the league environment with Cheltenham Town and Forest Green as well as having scouting roles at Weston and performance analyst roles at Redditch and Evesham.

Chairman Pete Webber said: “They were the standout candidates in an extremely strong list of applicants, which is a fantastic compliment to how far we have come in recent years.”

"The Town’s main focus was to bring in someone who has experience at the levels we want to compete at, improve on coaching levels and work to sustain and improve on our already strong squad.

"Between them, Andy and Rich have the knowledge, expertise, hunger and enthusiasm which promises to serve the club well and meets with the club’s expectations, over the coming years.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all applicants whom took the time to apply and look forward to working with Andy and Rich for many successful seasons to come.”
