On 25 May 2010, last seasons captain Chris Smith agreed to join Mansfield Town on 1 July 2010 in a one-year deal with the club.[1] Richard Tait is the first player to confirm that he will be staying with the club for the forthcoming season.[2] Veteran striker Iyseden Christie rejoins Kettering Town on a one-year deal.[3] Jake Sheridan expresses interest in returning for next season[4] Tom Shaw signs a one-year deal with former club Kidderminster Harriers.[5] On 15 June 2010, it was announced that Jake Sheridan, Aaron Mitchell and Nick Wright have all verbally agreed to return for the forthcoming season. Gavin Hurren has now moved to Australia and will be playing over there next season.[6] It was later confirmed he had joined Sunshine George Cross in the Victorian Premier League.[7] There are also strong indications that Kettering Town winger Danny Thomas will be signing for the club in the coming days and Michael Wylde to move on.[8] Neil MacKenzie and Sebastian Lake-Gaskin agreed to stay with the club for the new season and as expected, Danny Thomas was announced as The Lambs first signing.[9] Although he was expected to leave for Kidderminster Harriers, Michael Wylde penned a 12 month deal, along with Jay Smith.

He was taken to hospital, but luckily did not break any bones but has soft skin damage and a swollen cheek.[33] The Lambs went on to sign former Chester City midfielder Ben Wilkinson following a trial at the club.

October[edit]

Both Michael Wylde and Alex Rodman received a call up for the England C squad to face Estonia U23 on 13 October 2010.[38] The Lambs were drawn at home against Grimsby Town in the Fourth Qualifying Round of The FA Cup.[39] It was confirmed that manager Gary Mills and assistant Darron Gee were leaving the club to join York City. Des Lyttle took charge of the first team as caretaker player-manager.[40] The following day Lyttle brought in former West Bromwich Albion and Tamworth team mate Bob Taylor as a coach to assist him.[41] Due to an injury crisis at Derby County, Ross Atkins was recalled. Lambs brought in England U19 goalkeeper James Severn from The Rams.[42] Academy striker Troy Wallen has been handed the number 18 shirt vacated by Gary Mills.[43]

November[edit]

Ross Atkins rejoins on loan.

Following a win in the first round proper of the FA Cup against Crewe Alexandra, The Lambs were drawn away to League One side, Carlisle United.[44] Because of this, the away game against Eastbourne Borough was rescheduled from 27 November 2010 to 25 January 2011.[45]

James Severn was recalled by The Rams youth team and Ross Atkins was once again on loan with the club until January 2011.[46] Youth team strikers Alando Lewis and Troy Wallen were both sent out on loan to West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division side, Dudley Town for a month.[47] Former Darlington striker Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu joined the club on trial with a view to signing.[48]

Des Lyttle secured the signature of striker Bakary Bojang in time for the next league match against Cambridge United.[49] On the last day of the month, it was confirmed that Des Lyttle was going to take control of the first team on a full-time basis.[50]

December[edit]

Due to the bad weather conditions, Tamworth's home games against Newport County and Altrincham were cancelled.[51][52] Stefan Oakes left the club to pursue a playing/coaching career in the United States at a club based in New York.[53]

Bakary Bojang was released following less than two months with the club.[56] English-born Sierra Leonean international footballer Malvin Kamara joined the club following seven days training with the club.[57] Alex Rodman and Michael Wylde once again receive an England C call up.[58] Leading goalscorer Alex Rodman leaves the club to join League Two side Aldershot Town for an undisclosed fee.[59] Former Nottingham Forest Academy player, Jevaise Christie signs for the club from Arnold Town.[60] Sebastian Lake-Gaskin joins Leamington on an initial one months loan.[61] Abdillahie Yussuf agreed to extend his loan with the club for another month, keeping him with the club until the end of February. Also the club appealed against Jason Bradley's red card against Rushden & Diamonds.[62]

February[edit]

Following injuries to Stephen Bywater and Saul Deeney, Derby County were forced again to recall Ross Atkins away from The Lambs.[63] Defender Aaron Mitchell's younger brother Liam joins the club until the end of May on loan from Notts County.[64]

March[edit]

Stuart Hendrie joins on loan.

Dale Belford signed on a non contract basis with the club.[65] Academy goalkeeper Louis Connor joined Halesowen Town on loan to gain match experience.[66] Christian Smith joins the club until 30 April on an emergency loan from Wrexham.[67] Registrations for Malvin Kamara, Troy Wallen and Alando Lewis were cancelled.[68] On the last day of the month, Neil MacKenzie left the club.[69]

April[edit]

Striker Stuart Hendrie rejoined Morecambe following his one month emergency loan.[70] Manager Des Lyttle leaves the club with just four games of the season remaining.[71] It's believed that Lyttle vacated his position as he felt it was untenable after claiming the club's board tried to bring in former York City boss Martin Foyle as an adviser for the remaining four games.[72]
