Bath City FC has named Jerry Gill as the club's new manager.

Gill is a former City player. He gained promotion to the Premier League with Birmingham City as a player, and coached the Under-18s and Under-23s at Norwich and Under-18s at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Chairman Nick Blofeld describes Gill as a "very talented coach".

Now is the right time for him to step up to first team management with our strong, experienced squad. We’re really looking forward to him joining us and building on our strong league position.

– Nick Blofeld, Chairman, Bath City FC

Gill says he is "delighted" to re-join Bath City as manager.

The Club have always had a big place in my heart and it’s great to get the chance to manage the team here. I’m confident that I can use my knowledge and experience to help develop the team and will also look to strengthen the squad a little and build on the firm foundations that already exist here.

– Jerry Gill

The club says there are no other changes in the coaching team.

Football: was last night's match Truro City's last?

Players at beleaguered Truro City say they're prepared to stay at the club - until next week's takeover deadline, despite not being paid. There had been speculation the entire squad would walk out after last night's game against Bath City.

But the players have agreed to stay on for the time being, hoping a buyer can be found. If no-one comes forward, it could mean last night's match was the final one in the club's history.
