Llandudno part company with promotion-winning manager Alun Morgan as former Man City coach Gibson linked

Welsh Premier League side Llandudno and Alun Morgan both agreed to part company on Monday evening, bringing to an end a four-year spell as Tudno boss.

Morgan who is one of the most successful’ managers in the clubs history agreed to part company with the side that he achieved European qualification with on their first ever season in the Welsh top flight.

The 43 year-old who spent three years as manager at Aberystwyth Town was named Manager of the Month in August following their unbeaten start to the season but have since suffered defeats to bottom-two side Aberystwyth Town.

One possible replacement that has been touted is former Manchester City Academy coach Alex Gibson who could be set to take over in the Llandudno hot seat.

North Wales Pioneer say that Gibson is a strong contender for the job having already worked with the first team during pre-season, as well as taking the clubs first team training session on Tuesday evening.

He spent over a decade at Manchester City, helping nurture through players like full England international Micah Richards, as well as Stephen Ireland, Michael Johnson and Nedum Onouha.

The Llandudno board released a statement on their official club website from Club chairman Russ Austin who thanked Morgan for his services at the club and stated that they would be adding to the ongoing developments about the managerial role in the next few days.

“The club wishes to place on record the appreciation and gratitude of all at the club for what Alan has achieved and the legacy he leaves us with. We would also like to extend this gratitude and appreciation to his family who have supported him and the club and who have contributed so much themselves to this great club.

We all wish Alan and his family every success and happiness in the future and will always be welcome here.

The Club will make further announcements in the coming days.”
