Colwyn Bay appoint former Llandudno manager Alan Morgan as new boss

Colwyn Bay have appointed recently departed Llandudno Manager Alun Morgan as he replaces Phillip Hadland.

Alun Morgan will be joined by Craig Hogg, who was his assistant at Maesdu Park. Hogg has also had experience in playing for Colwyn Bay.

The news broke on Thursday evening as the club announced it on their official club website, only four days after the resignation of former boss Hadland.

Morgan was recently dismissed from his job with Llandudno after a five year spell, where he led the club to a Cymru Alliance title. He also helped his side reach an impressive third place finish in their first season, thus earning a Europa League spot.

Colwyn Bay chairman Dave Titchiner revealed there had been 24 applicants for the job but identified Alan Morgan as the most suitable appointment for the club.

He was replaced last week by Caernarfon Town boss Iwan Williams, who previously captained the club before being appointed manager.

“Alan has been successful in Welsh football and is very keen to go up the ladder in the English pyramid.” said Colwyn Bay chairman Dave Titchiner on the appointment of Morgan.

He wants the team to play good football and the players here have shown that they are capable of that.”

The Bay currently sit in 13th position in the EVO-STIK North, which is the 8th tier of English football and former manager Hadland has said the club could reach the playoffs.
