Carl Adams named as new Rugby Town manager

CARL Adams has been announced as the new manager of Rugby Town.

The 45-year-old left his managerial post at Stratford Town on Tuesday and he replaces Dave Stringer, who was sacked by Rugby on Wednesday morning.

With two promotions under his belt, the capture of Adams is a massive coup for the Midland League Premier Division club as they plot their return to the Southern League.

Rugby director, Neil Melvin, told the club's official website: "After the disappointment of relegation at the end of 2016/17, we set ourselves the primary objective of restoring non-league step four football to Butlin Road at the earliest opportunity.

"We believe this appointment now gives us the best chance of achieving this.

"Whilst we would like to thank Dave for all his efforts and wish him well for the future, unfortunately this season has not been as successful as we would have hoped for and as a result, we were not any point in serious contention for one of the two promotion places that were available.

"Getting out of this division is likely to be even tougher next time around, so we have appointed someone who had previously accomplished this task and is now ambitious to replicate this with us."
