Aberystwyth Town managerial role becomes vacant as Neville Powell moved upstairs
Welsh Premier League side Aberystwyth Town are in search of a new First Team manager following Neville Powell’s appointment as Director of Football.
The Seasiders were hopeful of Powell securing a spot on a Pro Licence course to pass UEFA Licensing Requirements but were unable to. The club must now refill the role with someone who possesses the UEFA Pro Licence or is working towards it.
A statement read on Aberystwyth Town’s official website said: “Aberystwyth Town FC can announce that Neville Powell has moved into the role of Director of Football and that the position of First Team Manager is now vacant.
“The role of First Team Manager is now vacant and will be advertised imminently.”
Earlier in October, Neville Powell was re-appointed as manager of the club, following the departure of Seamus Heath in August. This is the first managerial change of the season in the JD Welsh Premier League.
Powell won the Manager of the Month in November after winning five matches in a row. He steps down from his role having led Aberystwyth Town to an eighth-placed position in the Welsh Premier League.
During his time as a manager in the Welsh Premier League, Powell lead Bangor City to the Welsh Premier League title in 2010/2011. He also won the Welsh Cup with the Citizens in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Gavin Allen will remain in his role as Assistant Manager of the club.
The Black & Greens exited the Welsh Cup yesterday to Cardiff Metropolitan, with Neville Powell in the dugout.
Their first game of Phase Two comes this Friday when they host bottom side Llandudno at Park Avenue.
