FORMER Llandudno and Caernarfon Town manager Iwan Williams has reportedly joined the backroom staff at a JD Welsh Premier League club.

The Chronicle understands that the UEFA Pro Licence candidate will officially move to Bala Town to work with manager Colin Caton once his commitments with the Ynys Mon men’s squad have concluded at the upcoming Huws Gray Inter-Island Games tournament.

Williams has been out of the domestic game for a brief period after being given compassionate leave by Tudno to care for his sick father, and both parties agreed he would not return to the club following their relegation from the top-flight.

The ambitious coach guided the Canaries to the Huws Gray Alliance title in 2016, only for the club to be refused promotion to the top of the Welsh footballing pyramid after failing to obtain an FAW Domestic Licence.

They finished a distant second behind 2017 champions Prestatyn Town, with Williams moving on to Tudno in October of the same year.

He avoided a relegation fight during his first few months at the helm but was unable to prevent their struggles during the previous campaign following a massive squad overhaul that saw a significant amount of upheaval within the set-up.

Williams’ presence at Town will bring fresh ideas to a squad that underachieved last season, with the Lakesiders’ missing out on Europa League qualification after a disappointing playoff final reverse at the hands of Cardiff Met.

His official role with the staff is not yet known but is set to be confirmed in the coming days.
