With Gary Block resigning last week in wake of the news Wick will be relegated to County League Division 2 next season, Wick have moved quickly to acquire the services of ex-Arundel boss Towers.
He said: “I am looking forward to it. I have missed it to be honest. I have been watching a few games with my sons and that, but there is nothing like being involved.
“I am hoping to get a decent squad together and looking to build the club back up. It has had success in the past and, hopefully, we can get that going again.”
In a local twist, Block has gone the other way, and joined up with Arundel in a joint-manager role with Simon Butler.
