Pontypridd Town joint-manager Dominic Broad stands down
Pontypridd Town joint-manager Dominic Broad has stood down from his role as manager as he prepares for retirement from the Welsh League.
Dominic will continue in a playing capacity for the club as they play in Division One of the Welsh Football League next season, before retiring from Welsh League football altogether.
He alongside his brother Damien, finished second with Pontypridd Town as they achieved promotion to Division One.
“After five years at Pontypridd Town AFC it is time to step down as joint manager. Taking the decision to enter into management was amazing and crazy busy,” said Dominic Broad.
“Back in 2013 the chairman made it very clear that the aim was to get the club into Division 1, within five years. Damien and I have achieved that goal.
Over the last five seasons I am proud to say, we; had two promotions in three years, played Valencia, played Deportivo, played the Talksport Allstars and got to manage some excellent players.
Most of all, I am proud of achieving all this alongside my brother. Damien will continue as first team manager with the support of the new Assistant Manager, Chris Simms.”
I know the two of them will take this club to the next level thanks to the foundations of an excellent youth section, hard working committee and support from people that genuinely want to see the club grow and succeed.”
It now means that brother Damien will take sole charge of the Dragons, where he will be assisted by newly appointed assistant manager Chris Simms.
Simms was part of the coaching staff at Tredegar Town, where he assisted John Gall. He played in the Welsh Premier League six years ago for Bangor City.
Both Gavin Meacham and Lee Hartshorn have put pen to paper with Pontypridd Town this season.
