Eddie Maurice Jones appointed Rhyl FC Manager

After a successful campaign guiding Denbigh Town FC to second place in the Huws Gray Alliance League, Eddie Maurice-Jones has been announced as the new manager of Rhyl FC.

The Lilywhites have stepped in to quickly acquire his services after the highly rated coach stepped down from Denbigh Town last week.

He forms one quarter of Rhyl’s new four-man management team alongside David Norman, Richard Williams-Cooke
and Daniel Reece. The three have all worked with Maurice-Jones previously.

Maurice-Jones guided Denbigh to its highest ever finish in the Welsh Pyramid system last season, causing a stir in the North Wales football scene with Maurice-Jones earning universal praise.

He is now tasked with improving upon Rhyl’s 6th place finish this season as the former Welsh Premier League champions finished 18 points behind league leaders Caernarfon Town.

Maurice-Jones will operate as manager whilst David Norman is the club’s new sporting director.

In what the club has called a key position, Norman is responsible for forming a new legacy for the club to build on as it enters its second consecutive season in the second tier.

Norman is leaving his role as director of football at Brickfield Rangers to come to Rhyl having previously coached at Arsenal and guided Wingate and Finchley to the Ryman Premier League title. As a player, he started his senior career at Belle Vue.

Richard Williams-Cooke and Daniel Reece join the club as Maurice-Jones’ backroom staff members at Denbigh last season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, chairman Paul Higginson praised the club’s new appointments as it eyes a new era.

“The range of experience, capability and character of each of the members of the new football management team makes it clear that we are absolutely committed to building Rhyl FC into a formidable Club capable of returning to the top tier of Welsh football and capable of winning top honours”.
