STM Sports appoint former Porth manager as successor to Cadette
Recently promoted Welsh League Division Three side STM Sports have appointed Gareth Morgan as their new manager for the 2017/2018 season.
Morgan had only recently left fifth-placed Porth last week and STM Sports had only recently announced that Nathan Cadette would be stepping down as manager of the Llanrumney based side due to work commitments.
With promotion experience with Newport City from Division Three to Division Two as well as winning the Welsh Football League Cup with Croesyceiliog, STM Sports are adding a manager with a wealth of Welsh League experience.
As part of the appointment, player-coach Dominic Dwyer who also left Dinas Park has joined STM Sports as a Player-Assistant Manager.
The STM Sports board released a statement on the appointment of Morgan, stating that next season will be more about them finding their feet in the division.
“We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Gareth Morgan as the new manager of STM Sports AFC for the coming season.
We are looking for that experience to take the club forward and build on the achievements of the last nine years.
We will be looking for a period of consolidation and stabilisation next season as the club adapts to the new division and at the same time expanding the club with the introduction of our new Under 19’s team that will allow us to develop the young players of talent that we are lucky enough to have in our area.”
Morgan spoke of his delight to be given such a talented squad to work with, which has seen them challenge for promotion last season, as well as going through a remarkable rise through the Welsh pyramid system.
“The temptation to manage my local club was just too great to ignore, the squad oozes quality and their achievements to date have just been phenomenal, hopefully I can add to those achievements in the coming seasons.”
Youthful chairman Geza Hajgato also commented, speaking on how there were a number of individuals who were interested in the job but it was Gareth who stood out.
“There were a number of quality people after the position but Gareth was the one for us, he comes with all the experience needed to take us forward and we are all looking forward to the challenges ahead.”
