AFC Telford: Todd exits Tamworth to become Bucks player-coach

Andy Todd

AFC Telford United have brought in Andy Todd as player-coach - to become the Bucks' seventh summer signing.

The 35-year-old midfielder replaces Alan Moogan, who has left the Bucks Head to take up a community coaching role with Liverpool.

Todd was player-coach at Mansfield Town when they won the Conference Premier in 2012, leaving to extend his playing career with Tamworth.

He made 35 appearances for the Lambs last season, when they were relegated.

Promoted Conference North champions Telford have, in effect, swapped places with Tamworth.

Telford made their sixth signing of the summer earlier in the week by bringing in attacking midfielder Jordan Deacey from Bradford Park Avenue.

He follows the signing of two players released by troubled Hereford United; defender Rod McDonald and striker Sam Smith.

Telford have also signed Jonathan Hedge, to replace long-serving keeper Ryan Young as well as Southport defender Steve Akrigg and Witton Albion winger Josh Hancock.

The Bucks' return to the Conference Premier kicks off on 9 August, when they are due to visit Welling United.
