Gary Owers will remain as Bath City manager after signing a new contract – and he now wants a push for promotion.
With the club now community owned, the popular manager has confirmed he will lead the Romans once again next season.
He signs a two year deal at the Vanarama National League South club as they look for promotion next season.
“I am pleased to commit to the next two years and the hard work begins now to build a squad capable of achieving a top five position,” he told the club’s official website.
“I feel I have been given a reasonable opportunity to better our position in the League with a significant improvement in the budget.
“It is up to me to spend it wisely and it is exciting times for the club with the community buyout and hopefully the start of a successful period in the club’s history.”
Chairman of Football Paul Williams said: “We’re absolutely delighted to continue what’s already been a fruitful relationship with Gary.
“When we brought him back last year he worked wonders to turn around a difficult situation, while this year we’ve already seen great progress on a tight budget. With the new community ownership now a reality we’re pleased to be able to give Gary the resources to make a proper challenge for the play-offs and can’t wait for the new season.”
