Tim Harris is back in management

Tim Harris is the new manager of Worcester City.

Harris was Head of Football at Hereford when Marc Richards and Russell Slade were in charge of the Bulls, but left the club in November 2019 following an FA Trophy defeat to King's Lynn. Many fans questioned his appointment when he came to the club following Pete Beadle's departure 14 months previously and felt that a part-time National League North side didn't need a Head of Football.

Talking to Worcester's official website, Harris said that the club 'is a great fit for him'.

"It goes without saying that this football club has a rich history with a strong fan base," he said.

"The board have managed expectations well and have got it into a good position to kick on now. The timing for me was perfect, the fact Worcester City hasn't had a promotion for 40 years needs to change, and I'll be working with the board towards that aim. I can't wait to get going and the sooner football returns the better."

Worcester are currently 14th in the Midland Football League Premier Division having only picked two wins from 12 games.

City chairman Steve Goode says Harris' CV 'speaks for itself, whilst his approach and values are very much in chime with our ambitions and methodology as a football club'.

"He ticks every box for us," said Goode.

"We can't wait for Tim to settle in and get going."
