Vanarama National League South club Chippenham Town are heading for a solid mid-table position in their first season at the highest level in their history.
And as a reward, manager Mark Collier and head coach Gary Horgan have been rewarded by new two-year contracts by the Board of Directors at Hardenhuish Park.
Formerly in charge of Swindon Supermarine, Collier has been managing for over eight years and previously coached at Swindon Town for seven years.
Horgan, 40, stepped up to work alongside Collier in January following the departure of previous assistant-manager Tom Jones.
Chippenham chairman Neil Blackmore told the club`s official Pitchero website: “I am pleased to announce that both Mark Collier and Gary Horgan have agreed terms to continue as first-team manager and head coach for at least the next two years.
“Both Mark and Gary have worked tirelessly this season to ensure we kept our place in the National League South and I felt it only right that their commitment and effort be rewarded with contracts and to show the Board’s commitment to them.
“The Board are looking forward to working with Mark and Gary for many seasons to come and as this season comes to a close, we continue to work hard with both on-field and off-field projects to move the whole club forward towards the next step.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark, Gary and all their backroom staff for the hard work they have put into this season”.
