Former Llandudno boss Alun Morgan eager for immediate return to management following exit
Recently-departed Llandudno boss Alun Morgan says he’s eager to manage a club again after leaving Llandudno following four years in charge of the Conwy club.
Morgan who guided Llandudno to European qualification in their first season in the Welsh Premier League left the club after a meeting with the board on Monday evening.
But in their second season in Wales’ top flight they had to settle for a tenth-placed finish, missing out on a place in the Europa League play-offs by ten points, as well as being five off of the relegation zone.
And now the former Connah’s Quay midfielder is looking for a swift return back in to first team management as he prepares for a brief period outside of football after a long involvement with the game.
Speaking to the Welsh Premier League podcast, Morgan told BBC journalist Marc Webber that he would be willing to take a job outside of Wales.
“I’ll be looking to get back in whatever country or whatever part of the world. I love football and hopefully my phone will be ringing one day. My phone will always be on.”
The Tranmere Rovers youth has had a long involvement in the Welsh Premier League after playing briefly for sides like Doncaster and Morecambe before moving to Porthmadog and Cefn Druids, where he became Player-Manager for ten months as he moves across North Wales to Rhyl and then the Connah’s Quay Nomads.
Perhaps one of Morgan’s biggest moments was being appointed manager of home-town club Aberystwyth Town, working with good friend and Cardiff Metropolitan University boss Dr Christian Edwards.
“It’s a very good league, I’m gutted to come out tonight but hopefully that’s not the end of Alun Morgan and the Welsh Premier League.” said a hopeful Alun Morgan.
Despite being out of work in football, there will be no desire from him to see other clubs part company after being in the position at the moment.
“I’m not one of those managers who waits for a manager to get the sack because it’s not nice thing. At the moment I’m gonna spend more time with my family but if a phone call came tonight I’d be straight there.”
