THERE will be many new faces at the Lamb this season and also a couple of returning ones to go along with them.

Last week the Herald exclusively revealed that Tom Marshall had signed to make a playing comeback at Tamworth.

Now, seven days on it is the turn of Graeme Law to make is own personal return – albeit a less than convential one.

That is because the 28-year-old full-back has signed back at the club as a player-coach. It is a role he admitted he was excited about fulfilling.

He said: "I am delighted to be back in all honesty. I loved my time at Tamworth when I was here before and I am looking forward to working here again.

"I am back primarily as a coach but I have also signed playing forms just in case.

"Despite that I see my main role as that of a coach, and that is one I am looking forward to doing.

"I have always been interested in the coaching side of things. I completed my coaching badges at 21.

"That to me shows how much it means to me."

Law's appointment as a coach means that Tamworth now have a strong back-room team, including manager Marcus Law, assistant manager Dale Belford – and a host of new sporting therapists and sports scientists.

Grame Law – no relation to manager Marcus – admitted he was a good sign for things to come.

He said: "It is great for Tamworth that this club is taking the coaching side as seriously as they are.

"Marcus is a massive part of that, he is new-school type of manager who really thinks about the game and how to improve players and teams.

"He really knows a lot about football and with the amount of other help the players will now have I think Tamworth are in a strong position to move forward.

"That is great as I do think this is a brilliant football club.

"When I drove back to the Lamb the other day I got the same buzz I used to get here.

"That is what Tamworth does to you.

"That is why it is such a great little club.

"I just hope in my time here I can help move them forward again."
