Town co-boss Thomas stands down

Gareth Thomas - long serving Town stalwart

THATCHAM TOWN co-manager Gareth Thomas has resigned after discussions with club chairman Eric Bailey following the club’s FA Cup exit at Bracknell Town’s hands.

Long-serving defender Thomas was appointed before the start of Thatcham’s first season back in Hellenic League football, and last season was joined at the helm by former Alresford Town boss Danny Robinson.

Together, they steered Town into runners-up spot in the league’s Premier Division and to two knock-out semi-finals.

This season has seen two matches, both of which ended in defeat; 1-0 to Ardley United in the league and 3-2 to Bracknell in the Cup.

Robinson has been left in charge and will take the team to Tuffley Rovers in Tuesday night while Thomas has already been linked with a playing move with Marlow and AFC Totton showing interest.

Thatcham are also hoping to seal a 28-day loan deal for Hungerford Town goalkeeper Paul Strudley in time for the match.

Tadley Calleva collected their first Sydenhams Wessex League win of the season on Saturday when goals from Scott Kinge and Dan Vickers gave them a 2-1 win over Hythe and Dibden at Barlows Park.
