LEE FOWLER is ready to "start the next chapter" after being named assistant manager of Nuneaton Town.

The former Wrexham playmaker, who signed for Holywell Town at the back end of last season, will reunite with Nuneaton boss Nicky Eaden, who he knows from his time at Kettering Town.

On securing the role, the 35-year-old said: “I enjoyed working with Nicky at Kettering and we've stayed in touch over the past decade, so when I was offered the role I was delighted. It feels like the right time to start the next chapter in my career.”

A former Coventry City youngster who made the Wales bench against Argentina in 2002, Fowler has played at all levels of the Football League and National League since making his professional breakthrough in 2001.

“I've worked under a lot of different managers” added Fowler. “I've taken bits from all of them, both good and bad. I know what myself and Nicky want from the players, our core values will be straight-forward hard work and honesty.

“Myself and Nicky will be working very hard as well, we want to create a good environment for the players to thrive in.

"The signings we have made, and the signings we hope to complete shortly, will show our intent and represent what we’re about. We want to build a team that both ourselves and the fans can be proud of.”
