Llantwit Major boss Lewis to stand down from role at end of season
Karl Lewis has announced that he will stand down as Llantwit Major boss at the end of this season.
Lewis has been in charge of the club for four years and has overseen their recent consecutive promotions from Division Three to Division One in the span of just two seasons.
However, with just three and a half months to go until the end of the season, the manager has decided to tender his resignation ahead of the season’s end.
In a statement following their 4-3 win over Pontypridd on Saturday, Lewis stated “I’m not one to make a fuss but just wanted to announce early that I will be stepping down as Llantwit Major FC manager at the end of this season.
“I would like to go on record and say thanks to the club who gave me my first opportunity, the people who have supported the team and all the players who have played under me.
“Everyone has been fantastic and we have had an amazing four years, which is all due to the hard work of the board and players.
“Looking forward to putting all my effort into finishing the season strongly (starting next Saturday) and then seeing what the future holds for myself.
“I will always be a Llantwit Major FC fan and I look forward to seeing the further developments at this outstanding community club.”
Major romped to promotion from Welsh League Division Three in 2016-17 before they charged to the title in Division Two last season.
Lewis has guided Llantwit to the best record out of the three promoted sides, as they sit in 6th with eight wins from 18 games.
He now has 12 games remaining in charge of the club, before he departs from his role in May.
