Wrexham-based Brymbo FC are hoping for a return to the club’s golden era after appointing an experienced management team to guide them through the 17/18 season.
The club is preparing for a season in the fourth tier Welsh National League Division One after relegation from the Premier Division, but the capture of manager Phil Hudson and assistant Tommy Holmes has boosted hopes for a swift return back up the pyramid.
Hudson has taken the reigns at Brymbo following a successful managerial spell in the Wirral leagues, winning five trophies in four seasons during time with Woodchurch Athletic and Ashville.
Tommy Holmes joins the club with a wealth of experience in the Welsh pyramid, winning numerous honours as a player with The New Saints before spending time at Prestatyn’s Bastion Gardens.
