Rhayader Town seeking new manager after joint-managers stand down

Cymru Alliance side Rhayader Town are on the look out for a new First Team Manager after both Jason Samuel and Gareth Hughes stood down from the role.

Gareth Hughes and Jason Samuel have both taken a step back from the club which has freed up the Red Kites hot seat.

Rhayader were relegated the season before and looked to the former Builth Wells boss to help regroup after their relegation. Fortunately for Rhayader, Samuel delivered alongside Hughes as they won promotion back to the second tier.

The Thin Red Line pair also won the League Cup last season in what was a memorable season for the club, as they celebrated their 10-year anniversary.

Hughes who returned to the club back in 2011, having been described as one of the signings of the summer back in September of that year, joined from Premier League side Aberystwyth Town.

The midfielder will continue at the club in a playing capacity which will help what is a youthful squad at the moment.

The Powys based club have released a statement in what they are looking for in their replacement for the two and have set a deadline of the 24th July, giving applicants a week to put together why they should be the next manager of Rhayader Town.

Ashley Jones, Tom Bethell and Joe Prosser have all committed to the club for the upcoming season, meaning the next manager will have a good squad pool to choose from, especially in Tom Bethell, who was nominated the clubs Player’s Player of the Year.

The club’s next manager will begin life in a competitive sense when Rhayader open their Cymru Alliance season on August 12th away at Flint Town United.

The club have tier 2 status and has just completed £20,000 worth of ground works to update the facilities we have a full junior section from under sixes to youth a club that is wanting to move forward and keep building for the future.”
