Harris stands down as Gloucester City Manager

Tim Harris has stood down as manager of Vanarama National League South side Gloucester City.

In a statement issued by the club, Harris, who has been in charge for almost four years, during which time Gloucester have played all their ‘home’ games in Cheltenham and Evesham, admitted the decision to quit was one of the most difficult of his managerial career.

“It’s a decision I’ve not taken lightly and it’s been something I have wrestled with for at least the last six months,” said Harris.

“To say we have been punching above our weight is a massive understatement and the club needs some investment, some structure and business acumen if it is to maintain any hope of returning home at this level.”
