New Bangor City boss Nicholson eyeing more success
Newly appointed Bangor City manager Kevin Nicholson has said he wants to continue the good work at the club after their qualification to the Europa League Qualifiers.
Speaking to WPL.Cymru at his unveiling as First Team Manager of the Citizens at Nantporth today, the former Cardiff City man paid tribute to the work Gary Tayor-Fletcher had done at the club as they sought a First Team Manager with a UEFA Pro Licence qualification.
“I’m delighted to be here, delighted to be joining the club, thankful to everyone for the opportunity to come here and work, coach and build on the success that the team has had recently. Gary and the club’s achievements last season have been brilliant, getting back into Europe, and I’m here just to work alongside the likes of Gary and support everybody who is trying to build on that and continue moving forward.”
Taylor-Fletcher guided Bangor City into the Europa League qualifiers after narrowly beating student side Cardiff Metropolitan University 1-0, bringing back the days of when Bangor City were challenging at the top end of the table.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Gary, absolutely! We’ve had some conversations already and I’m really excited about the prospect of working together, everything between us has been really positive. I’ll be leaning on him and looking to learn from him and I look forward to our partnership. Our philosophies and principals match, I have no doubt about that, we’ll try to play the best football we can possibly play and win as many matches as possible.
The 31 year-old has previously managed Cardiff City’s U23 and U18 squads as well as working at Burton Albion as a First Team opposition scout back in December before taking the Bangor City job this week and said how he’s excited to work with a mixture of young and old and improving them as footballers.
“I’ve got a lot of experience in developing and working with younger players, I really enjoy working with young players as well as experienced players and I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity to do both in my career so far at first-team and academy level. Coaching is one of my passions, developing players on the training field, and with the help of everybody here I’ll be able to develop all of the lads and make us as strong a team as possible.”
Nicholson will meet up with the squad for pre-season training in two weeks time as the players report back to train for their Europa League qualifier.
