Evo-Stik League Premier club Hednesford Town have announced the return of manager Rob Smith and his assistant Larry Chambers to Keys Park.
Following the departure of Neil Tooth yesterday, the club have moved quickly to bring back the popular former manager who was previously in charge of the Pitmen between 2010 and 2015.
Smith will be fondly remembered by Pitmen supporters as the manager who led the club back to the second tier of the non-league pyramid and bringing with it Conference football in 2013 following an eight-year absence.
During his 271 games in charge of Hednesford, Smith recorded a total of 151 victories with him guiding the club to Southern League Cup, Birmingham Senior Cup, Staffordshire Senior Cup and Northern Premier League play-off final titles.
Smith told the club`s website: “It is obviously a massive surprise for us how quickly this has all happened. I still have a lot of feelings for this football club, even when I wasn’t involved, and when the chance came to return I couldn’t turn it down.
“I really can’t wait to get going now and we will be working towards Saturday’s game straight away”.
