CONWY Borough director of football Warren Gibbs has left the club.

The popular figure is reported to have departed Y Morfa following the Tangerines’ 2-0 defeat at in-form JD Cymru North rivals Bangor City on Tuesday evening.

Gibbs replaced Gareth Thomas as first team manager early last season and steered the club to safety in their first campaign back at second tier level following a memorable treble-winning triumph.

He moved into the director of football role last summer as Russ Williams came into the fold, who was subsequently replaced by Chris Morrell.

Borough have not yet made a formal announcement regarding the decision or whether a replacement will be sought.

Gibbs joined Conwy after a hugely successful spell with Glantraeth, which ended after the club’s failure to meet the required criteria from the Football Association of Wales to compete in the Huws Gray Alliance.

A season away from the game followed but Gibbs made a big impact during his time at Y Morfa, masterminding a phenomenal start to the current campaign despite losing a wealth of key squad members during pre-season.

Although Borough’s fortunes have tailed off since, they still lie a respectable seventh in the standings ahead of their trip to Penrhyncoch on Saturday (2.30pm).
