Legendary Panteg manager Taylor stands down from role
Panteg manager Mark Taylor has stood down from his role as manager of the Welsh League Division Three club.
The JD Welsh Cup Round One defeat to Division One side Penybont was the last game in charge for Taylor, who leaves due to family and work commitments.
Mark had been in charge of the club since 2007. He oversaw the clubs rise from the Gwent County League Division Two into the Welsh League.
Mark Taylor tweeted in a statement: “It is with a deep sadness that I have decided to step down from my role as First Team Manager.
Over the last several months I have felt like I can no longer give this commitment.
I want to say a huge thank you to all players, supporters, committee and sponsors have supported me over the years.
Thank you for everything all of you have done for me.”
Taylor will now take the role as chairman of Panteg, as he takes a backseat role, after being involved with the club for over a decade.
He will be replaced by Steve Rogers, after joining the club last season. Rogers will be assisted by Chris Townsend and Paul Brown.
They were promoted in the 2013/2014 season, after finishing second. They have since solidified their Welsh League status, with 11th, 7th, 6th and 9th placed finishes.
Panteg are currently 14th in the table, having played six games. They’ve won twice, drawn once and lost three times.
Steve Rogers’ first game in charge of Panteg as manager will be against AFC Porth this Saturday at the Panteg House Sportsgrounds.
