Former Bristol Rovers defender Nick Tanner joins Wick as joint-manager
FORMER Bristol Rovers and Liverpool defender Nick Tanner has joined Wick as joint-manager with Shaun Honour, who led the team in the Premier Division of the Bristol Premier Combination last season.
Tanner and Honour have worked together at Welton Rovers and Wotton Rovers and will be assisted by former Cadbury Heath and Keynsham Town striker Ryan Bernard, who has been influential since he was sidelined from playing by injury.
Tanner is delighted to be back involved in local football after leaving Winterbourne last September and is looking forward to the challenge on and off the field.
He said: "I had a great time at Winterbourne and was proud of my efforts. I left the club in a much better position on and off the field than when I inherited it.
