Prestatyn Town manager Neil Gibson stands down as Seasiders boss

Neil Gibson has left his role as Prestatyn Town manager this evening as he seeks a new opportunity away from Bastion Gardens.

Gibson had lead Prestatyn Town to promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League last season after dominating the Cymru Alliance.

Prestatyn Town are currently second from bottom and are seven points adrift from safety, as well as bottom-placed Carmarthen Town only being three points behind them.

The former Tranmere trainee had spent almost ten years as manager of the club after being appointed player-manager, taking his involvement in the club to fourteen years.

During his time at the club, he won promotion twice in his role as manager, as well as leading the Seasiders to Welsh Cup glory back in 2013, thus qualifying for the Europa League. He was in the dugout when Prestatyn Town beat now defunct side SK Liepājas Metalurgs, before losing to Rijeka.

In a statement released by the club, they confirmed Gibson’s decision to resign from his role as manager of the club.

“Neil has decided it is time to seek pastures new after 14 years of loyal & dedicated service at Bastion Gardens.
He has overseen the greatest moments in our history; gaining promotion to the Welsh Premier league in 2008, winning the Welsh Cup in 2013 & guiding us through an unforgettable Europa League adventure.
As a club, we wish him all the very best in his future career & place on record our sincerest thanks for the unstinting devotion he has given Prestatyn Town Football Club.
Any further information will be communicated through the club’s official channels as & when it becomes available.”
Prestatyn Town’s next game is in two weeks time when they play Carmarthen Town in their first game of Phase Two.
