Villis returns to Peacocks

New Coaching Role

Matt Villis has re-joined Evo-Stik Southern League South club Taunton Town as a coach.

The 34-year-old former Torquay United and Weston-super-Mare defender was forced to retire from playing for the Peacocks earlier this year following persistent injury problems.

With goalkeeping coach Paul Edwards unable to continue in his role this season, an opportunity arose for Villis to put his vast experience to good use.

Villis will join the existing management team of boss Leigh Robinson, assistant-manager Michael Meaker and coach Rob Dray, who will all continue in their roles.

Villis told "It was fantastic to be asked by Leigh to join the coaching team for the new season. I had some fantastic moments as a player so it's a real privilege to stay at a club that is going from strength to strength.
