LLANDUDNO FC are poised to make Sean Eardley their first team manager later today.

The popular figure announced his decision to step down at Caernarfon Town over the weekend after being offered the position at Maesdu Park last week.

After significant deliberation, Eardley has opted to return to the JD Cymru North in what represents a real coup for the club.

Eardley is the second Canaries’ manager to make the switch, with Iwan Williams also making the move recently. He has spent considerable time at Tudno in the past as part of their Academy coaching staff, and will now set his sights on transforming the club’s fortunes after a difficult couple of seasons that resulted in relegation from the JD Cymru Premier.

The well-respected coach played a huge part in the Cofis’ incredible rise to prominence in recent seasons, securing promotion to the top-flight.

His time with the club also resulted in a pair of top-six finishes, although their pursuit of European football was thwarted this season when the Football Association of Wales curtailed the campaign due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Eardley has now decided to take on a new challenge, with Llandudno FC set to officially confirm the appointment this evening.

He enters a JD Cymru North that is set to be incredibly competitive once again, but there is still plenty up in their air regarding the promotion and relegation issue.

The FAW stated a decision is set to be made “in due course”, with champions Prestatyn Town still pursuing options after their Tier 1 Licence appeal was rejected.
