Salford City is pleased to confirm Gary Bowyer as the new Manager until the end of the season.

The 49-year-old has been working with Derby County after a spell as Bradford City manager. Previously he has been in charge at Blackburn Rovers, and in 2017 he won promotion from League Two with Blackpool via the play-offs.

As a player the Manchester-born full-back played for Hereford United and Rotherham United before having to retire early due to injury. He was part of the Millers side that won the Football League Trophy in 1996.

On taking charge Bowyer said:

“I’m delighted to be here, I’ve got to first and foremost thank Wayne Rooney, Darren Wassall at Derby County for being so helpful to allow me to come here. Obviously today is a case of meeting the players and setting the expectations of what we expect of them from now until the end of the season.

“We want them to be playing aggressive football both with and without the ball, and have a right good go at these remaining 11 games. We have an opportunity like everybody else in this league to try and force our way into the reckoning to try and get into the play offs and see if we can do that.”

He will be assisted by Warren Joyce and Darron Gibson.

Welcome to The Peninsula Stadium Gary, and we wish you a successful tenure!
