LLANDUDNO have appointed Matthew Jones as their new manager following the departure of Gary Taylor-Fletcher.

The Tier 2 North side moved quickly to replace the former Bangor City boss, who withdrew his application due to a conflict of interest after just two days in the post.

Jones recently resigned as joint-manager of Denbigh Town, who were relegated from the Huws Gray Alliance after finishing runners-up the previous season.

He also spent half a season at the helm of Rhyl FC alongside Mark Connolly, who is also being strongly linked with the backroom staff at Tudno after turning out for them in the JD Welsh Premier League last term.

The new appointment has a huge job ahead of him in terms of forming a squad capable of challenging for an instant return to the top flight on a reduced budget, with a number of senior players set to depart for pastures new following their demotion after a four-year stay in the WPL.

Jones, said: "I am delighted to have been appointed the manager of this fantastic football club. Having met with the board, I know that this is a great fit and I am really looking forward to getting started.

"The hard work begins now and I will spend the next few days speaking to the existing squad and building towards the start of the season."

Taylor-Fetcher wished the club all the best going forward, and apologised for the “unforeseen circumstances” that led to him leaving just 48 hours after his move from the Citizens.
