IN THE AWAY DUGOUT

John Allen – Possibly the most unique manager in the league in that he is also the clubs chairman. In charge since May 2016, it is not his first spell in the hot seat.

 

DANGER MAN

George Bowerman – A striker with great finishing ability who despite being 25 has plenty of experience around the leagues. He came through the youth ranks with Walsall before joining Rushall from Halesowen Town.
