Tom completed his Coaching Staff for last season by appointing Dave Andrew as the club’s
goalkeeper coach. Tom says: “Dave is someone who came highly recommended to me by several people and his CV speaks for itself. Having been at Stockport County for 16 years and also part of Witton Albion staff for several years it was a no brainier for me.
