Tamworth lie in 15th position in the table and face Blyth Spartans at the Lamb tonight.

Scott joins as Assistant Manager!
We are pleased to announced the Scott Rickards has rejoined the club as Assistant Manager. Rickards made over 100 Lambs appearances during two spells, and has already been working at the club this season as an Academy coach. Mike Fowler has moved Rickards up to first team duties, which he will combine with his existing full time youth development role at Mansfield Town.
On Rickards, Fowler said "He is really enthusiastic and will definitely strengthen us with his ideas. He will bring a freshness into the group and, of course, fans have an affinity with him because he's an ex-player and local lad. He's got a good history with the club, a good skill set and contacts at local clubs both above and below us." Scott will be in the dugout at Alfreton Town tomorrow afternoon.
