NICK Price will take over the responsibility of coaching Crewe and Nantwich's first team after the departure of Matt Farr.
The reshuffle was forced when the influential Farr agreed to take over as head coach at Chester RUFC. Now team manager Price, who has been at the club for 27 years, has accepted the coaching role.
It was announced at the club's AGM that he will be backed by Andy Thompson, after he was forced to quit playing on medical grounds.
Gwyn Evans has been re-elected as chairman, Alan Jones as secretary and Colin Lindop as treasurer. Danny Potts will continue to skipper the first team, with Mike Parker leading the 2nds. New Zealander Donny Ngatai has rejoined the squad after a year-long sabbatical.
Training for the new season starts on Tuesday at 6.45pm at Crewe Vagrants Sports Club. For more information, phone Nick Price on 01270 842411, Gwyn Evans on 01270 625351 or Alan Jones on 01270 625737.
