Conwy part company with manger Gareth Thomas

Huws Gray Alliance side Conwy Borough have parted company with manager Gareth Thomas with immediate effect.

The club announced the news this morning following four wins from 14 games to begin the season. Borough has also parted company with assistant manager Alun Winstanley and first team coach Sara Hilton.

Thomas had been at the club for a year, after he was appointed following relegation to the Welsh Alliance League Premier Division. Thomas spent 12 months at the helm of the club, and secured the treble, including title success that saw Conwy return to the second tier at the first time of asking.

After a positive start to the season, Conwy’s form has dipped in recent weeks.

Thomas’ last game in charge of the Tangerines was a 3-2 defeat to Ruthin Town. Borough failed to hold on a two goal lead and missed two penalties, and in the wake of the defeat, Thomas has been relieved of his duties.

Chairman Chris Wilton released a statement on the club’s website.

“We wish to place on record our gratitude to them all for their hard work and the terrific success they brought to the club last season, achieving our objective of promotion at the first attempt and winning two cups. This season has been tough at times and as a board we feel that a change is needed now to give a new manger the best chance of maintaining our Cymru Alliance status.”
