On taking the role, Wallis expressed his delight in being given the role and announced that he will shy away from playing now as he focuses on management.
“I am excited and privileged to be appointed in my first managerial opportunity.
After meeting with the board it was clear we shared the same ambitions and we are prepared to work together to take the club in the right direction.”
The Monmouthshire based side have shuffled their backroom staff as the club go in a new direction.
Tony Wallis will be assisted by Andrew Wenzel who steps up to the role after playing for Caldicot over the years, with the return to the club a delight to the new manager.
“I’m delighted to have secured the services of another former player in Andrew Wenzel who will now take on an invaluable coaching assistant role alongside myself and existing experienced staff members Julian Williams and John Burrows.
After suffering relegation last season after promotion the year before, the former Risca United forward says the focus is now on achieving the best for the club.
“The disappointment of last season is already firmly behind us, with our minds now solely focused on plans and what we can achieve.
I can’t wait to begin working with the squad as we aim to be a competitive force in Division Two next season.”
