Former Gloucester City manager Chris Todd joins Buckland Athletic as a Player


The 37-year-old football athlete is set to play with Buckland Athletic after he signed with them as a player. After leaving his post as Gloucester City’s manager, Todd is set to play for the football team on the Toolstation Western League.

He has been previously assigned as a replacement for the city’s former manager, Marc Richards. The assigned post was for an 18-month contract. As the manager, the Tigers have failed to win the cup for the National League South Games, only at four points. His only recorded win was the County Cup, where the league has won against Cirencester Town. He had only served as manager for less than three months and has left Gloucester City in mutual consent. On his Twitter account, he has expressed his sentiment earlier regarding the losses under his management and assures he would do everything to turn the tides. The Votte’s Twitter account has made some noise in the online world calling the ousting of resignation from his manager role following the tirades of football fans about the city league’s losses. His resignation, many said, is not surprising and has been expected since his taking over of the manager post.

He was the former defender for Swansea and Forest Green. He started with the team as a trainee in Swansea and made 46 appearances for the football club before his release. He had a short stint in Ireland with Drogheda before his signing for the Exeter City league. This is where he had played most in his football career, with 154 appearances counted in his four years stay. He later had a stinted stay with Torquay as well. He had also spent two years playing in Forest Green but only made an appearance twice before his drop down from the leagues and ended up at Truro City where he retired from playing.

In joining Buckland Athletic, he is now set to play for the Wellington AFC tomorrow. The Buckland Athletic side is currently sitting on the 10th spot for the Toolstation Western Premier League. Football fans are looking forward to how this signing would affect the football cup in the coming days.
