LLANDUDNO FC have moved swiftly to replace outgoing chairman Richard Walker with the appointment of Andrew Croston.

The JD Cymru North side announced Croston as the man who will lead the club forward in the coming months. He has coaching experience and recently worked with Llanfairfechan Town’s senior and reserve sides.

The new appointment comes with an impressive business background away from the game and Tudno are hoping his “outside perspective” on their current situation will be useful during this uncertain time.

Mr Croston, said: “I am bringing a different skill set and one which will be complementary with the existing personnel at the club.

“I look forward to bringing fans an entertaining and engaging football product, along with meeting the challenge of a competitive league and a discerning public.

“I am also excited about working with the new committee, supporters and volunteers to improve the facilities and experience at an already fantastic Maesdu Park.”

The club has also made significant improvements to their board, with four new appointments following Mr Croston’s arrival.

Goalkeeping coach Dave Guinn will lend his support in the role of vice-chairman and is keen to “put more back into the club” that he has become an integral part of in recent years.

He will be replacing Neil Sheldon, who ended a long association with the club to focus more on his own business interested during the coronavirus pandemic.

Former Tudno player and current U11 coach Paul Roberts has earned a place at the table, in addition to security business owner Bobby Gaze.

Rounding off the new board members is current Academy coach Jamie Wardle.
