He was appointed as manager back in September 2011 after taking the job on a caretaker basis originally joined the club after contributing as First Team Coach

In a statement released on the official Croesyceiliog website, the club stated that it would be in the best interests for Waddon and the club to part company.

“Mark has been first team manager since September 2011 and after some thought has decided it is the best interests for him to step down and take a break away from the game. Mark has served the club both as a player and then on the management side before taking job in his own right.
We would like to thank Mark for all his efforts at the club and as many managers will testify it is a time consuming as well as a stressful job at times and we hope Mark enjoys the break and no doubt we will see him at games throughout the season.”

Jamie Jenkins and Director of Football Chris Evans have been handed the reigns on a temporary basis as the club seek a successor to Mark Waddon. Evans has had experience as Croesyceiliog manager before, which will help the transition as they seek a permanent replacement.

Croesyceiliog’s next game will be at home to bottom side AFC Porth who have yet to register a win in the league this season.
