Llandudno appoint Caernarfon Town Manager Iwan Williams
Iwan Williams has left Caernarfon Town to become the manager of Llandudno FC, it was announced today.
The manager tendered his resignation at Caernarfon Town on the same day they progressed in the JD Welsh Cup with a second round win over Berriew.
He will take over all first matters at JD Welsh Premier outfit Llandudno with immediate effect.
Williams, an ex Llandudno captain, succeeds Alan Morgan who was relieved of his duties as manager after taking the club from the bottom of the Huws Gray Alliance to qualifying for the Europa League in Llandudno’s first ever JD Welsh Premier League season.
Williams leaves Caernarfon in high regard as he won the Huws Gray Alliance title at the club in his first season at the club in 2015/16. He was however denied the chance to manage the Cofis in the top flight as a licensing decision blocked the club from promotion.
He also won back to back Huws Gray Cups with Caernarfon, and leaves the club sitting top of the league as it chases promotion along with the likes of Airbus UK.
Sean Eardly has taken interim first team manager duties at Caernarfon, who in a official statement said they are looking at all the options available in their search for a new manager.
Speaking to Llandudno FC’s official website, chairman Russ Austin said:
“As Chairman I am delighted to bring Iwan to the club, I have known and watched him for over 25 years in his development as a young player on Angelsey, his growth into senior football and his successful move into coaching and management, this is a very positive appointment for the club and I know Iwan will bring us continued success.”
Everyone at the club extends a warm welcome to Iwan and we all look forward to the exciting times that lie ahead.
“I would like to thank Caernarfon Town FC for their understanding in this matter, they are close to my own heart of course and we have good relations between our clubs. We are all eagerly anticipating their return to the top flight if they continue their current form, and will be a welcome addition to the Welsh Premier League if they succeed.”
