Tim Harris is an English football manager. He is currently Director of Football at Newport County.[1]

Harris was a professional football player for several clubs, including Shrewsbury, Newport County, Cheltenham, Redditch and as a goalkeeper for Gloucester City in the late 1970s. He was an assistant manager at Gloucester City twice,[2] and has previous experience as a manager with Forest Green, Cinderford, Newport County and Merthyr Tydfil.

In 2006 Harris was appointed as First Team Manager at Gloucester City, saving them from certain relegation and finishing in a respectable 13th place. In 2008 Harris moved 'upstairs' and became General Manager, handing over the first team manager job to assistant David Mehew. Gloucester City gained promotion to the Blue Square Conference for the 2009-10 season, via a play-off win at Farnborough.

The following week Harris was appointed as General Manager at Newport County alongside team manager Dean Holdsworth. Newport County were champions of the Conference South for the 2009–10 season and promoted to the Conference National for the 2010–11 season. Following Dean Holdsworth's departure, Harris was appointed caretaker manager on 13 January 2011. [3] Following the appointment of Anthony Hudson on 1 April, Harris returned to his role as Director of Football.
