LLANDUDNO FC have parted company with first-team manager Matthew Jones with immediate effect.

The JD Cymru North side announced the decision a day removed from the Football Association of Wales’ announcement to cancel the remainder of the campaign due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Jones took over at the helm last summer, replacing Gary Taylor-Fletcher following his two-day stint in the role.

He saw the club through a period of transition thanks to a squad overhaul following their relegation from the top-flight. This came with mixed success as Tudno eventually finished their first season back at second-tier level in 12th position after points per game was the preferred outcome from the FAW.

New chairman Andrew Croston has wasted no time in stamping his mark on the club, bringing in five additional board members, and he is now on the lookout for a manager to take them forward.

A club spokesman, said: “Llandudno Football Club can today (Wednesday) confirm that following the FAW’s curtailment of the domestic season, that Matthew Jones has been relieved his duties as 1st Team Manager of Llandudno Football Club.

“The club would like to place on record its gratitude, and best wishes to Matty for his dedication and effort, over the 2019/20 campaign.

“The club will begin its recruitment process for a new 1st Team Manager immediately, in preparation for the new campaign.”

Jones is a highly qualified coach that has had previous managerial experience at high-profile clubs such as Llandudno Junction, Rhyl and Denbigh Town.
