Former Hull coach Pennock announced as Aberystwyth assistant manager
Aberystwyth confirmed today that former Hull City first team coach Tony Pennock has joined the club as the assistant manager.
The news comes in just few weeks after the club announced Matthew Bishop had stepped aside as manager, leaving current assistant manager Wayne Jones to take the reins for the rest of season. But, with Pennock’s appointment, it could mean the end for Bishop at Park Avenue.
The club stated that Jones’ A License had recently expired, and Pennock’s appointment ensures they meet the Welsh Premier League domestic license criteria, given he holds a Pro License.
The former goalkeeper played for 12 teams during his playing career and enjoyed a six year stint with Yeovil Town playing 236 games scoring one goal. Other notable clubs he played for include Swansea, Newport, Carmarthen, Wigan and Port Talbot.
With experience in the Welsh Premier League during his playing career with both Carmarthen and Port Talbot, he will be a respected figure upon his return, albeit as part of the management team this time.
The club will undoubtedly he hoping some fresh faces at the club will help provide some much needed impetus as they attempt to stave off relegation in the final games of the season..
He will be in the dug-outs for the first time on Sunday when the Black and Greens travel up to Llandudno which will be broadcasted live on S4C.
