Marcus William Law (born 28 September 1975) is an English former footballer and manager. He has managed a number of clubs including Tamworth and Kettering Town.

Playing career

Born in Coventry, West Midlands, Law started his career as a goalkeeper at Bristol Rovers, making two appearances in the Football League during the 1994–95 season.[1] He then moved into non-league football, playing for Stafford Rangers, before a hip injury forced him into premature retirement whilst playing for the Sacramento Knights in America.[4]

Managerial career


He later went on to manage non-league sides Coventry Sphinx, Racing Club Warwick, Quorn and Barwell. He also spent time coaching in the youth set ups at Aston Villa and Coventry City. While at Barwell he won the Midland Football Alliance, the highest position they had achieved as a club in their history and started an unbeaten run that eventually stretched to 66 games.[5]

Kettering Town

His successful run attracted the attention of Conference National side Kettering Town and he was appointed manager on 1 October 2010.[6] Kettering finished 14th in his first season in charge of the club.[7]


After eight months as manager of Kettering, Law was appointed manager of fellow Conference club Tamworth on a three-year contract on 25 May 2011.[8] Law led Tamworth to the third round of the FA Cup in January 2012 where they lost against Premier League side Everton at Goodison Park.[9] After 19 months in charge at Tamworth, Law was sacked by the club on 14 January 2013.[10]

Forest Green Rovers

In August 2013, Law joined Forest Green Rovers as a coach on a part-time remit, working alongside Dave Hockaday.[11] He left the club in October 2013 following Hockaday's departure as manager. In March 2014 he revealed he had applied for the vacant job at Wrexham and was keen on a return to management.[12]
