Long-serving Abergavenny boss Morgan steps down

Abergavenny Town have announced that long-serving manager Stephen Morgan has called time as manager of the club.

The news broke yesterday as the club announced on the Welsh Football League website as well as confirming that the club had accepted Morgan’s resignation on social media.

Chairman Rob Francis gave a statement on behalf of Abergavenny Town, praising the hard work of Morgan and wishing the departing manager the all the very best.

“We regret, but understand his decision, after managing the team for oveer 20 years. We doubt we will find anyone else who will show the dedication he has consistently displayed every season. His departure leaves an enormous gap and he will truly be a tough act to follow.”

As a club, from players past and present, along with all the cmmittee and members of Abergavenny Town FC, we would like to thank Butch for everything he has contributed to on and off the pitch and wish all the very best for the future.”

Morgan has seen a meteoric rise with Abergavenny and in recent years took the club from the Gwent County League to the Welsh Football League, winning the FAW Trophy along the way.

Morgan had been at the club for so long that he has managed them under two different names, Govilon AFC which was the Pennies original name and now under its current name Abergavenny Town.

Abergavenny will now look to swiftly appoint a new manager and have set a 20th May deadline as they enter a phase of transition following the departure of a long time servant of the club.

“Following the decision, the club wish to appoint a first team manager for their Welsh League Division 2 side. The successful candidate will be experienced in managing at Welsh league level and have the drive and commitment to carry the team forward, in what will be a demanding role.”
