New Gloucester City boss Todd ‘excited’ by challenge ahead

Gloucester City have appointed former Eastleigh manager Chris Todd as their new manager.

The Tigers have also appointed Tom Webb and Mike Green as assistant manager and coach respectively, both on permanent deals.

Todd watched his new side fall short 1-0 away to Billericay Town and will take charge of his first official game this weekend.

Gloucester host Bromley FC as they look to reach the FA Cup 1st round proper for the third time in six years.

Todd took Eastleigh on a memorable cup run to the FA Cup 3rd round when they were knocked out by Championship side Bolton Wanderers.

Upon his appointment, Todd said: “It is a blow obviously to the Club with the previous manager leaving but that’s football and as one door closes another inevitably opens.

“I’m really excited about the challenge ahead, for me personally it’s a real honour with the Club looking to come home, to think that I’ll be the man to do that.

“Even though it’s very much a family and volunteer run Club, Gloucester City is an ambitious Club and you can tell that after meeting the board and hearing their vision for it.
