CONWY Borough have made another key addition to their backroom team with the appointment of Andy Nelson.

The highly-respected figure joins the Huws Gray Alliance side as their new Safeguarding Officer, with Nelson holding a UEFA A Licence and is also a coach educator at the FAW Trust.

Chairman Chris Wilton, said: “We are delighted that Andy has agreed to work with us. He has previously coached our U19s and will now take on a role as our Safeguarding Officer.

“The experience and knowhow that Andy brings will be a huge benefit to the club.”

This is the latest off-the-field development at the Tangerines since the end of the season, with the club recently announcing that Russ Williams will take over as their new first team manager, with current boss Warren Gibbs assuming the director of football role.

Williams holds a UEFA B Licence and is no stranger to the set-up having managed the reserve team this season.

This is the third manager change at Y Morfa this season following the departure of Gareth Thomas, who has since gone on to join the backroom team at recently relegated Denbigh Town.

Former Glantraeth manager Gibbs will be tasked with “supporting the development of the first team and also having oversight of a pathway designed to ensure the progress of players” from youth level to the reserve and first team squads.
