Major announce Robinson to take the reins next season
Llantwit Major have announced that first team club captain Darren Robinson will replace departing manager Karl Lewis at the end of the season.
Lewis announced earlier this month that he would be standing down as manager at the end of the 2018/19 season, following four years in charge of Major.
The young manager has led the club to successive promotions in the last two years, as the club rose from Division Three to Division One.
However, following the club’s 4-3 victory over Pontypridd at the beginning of the month, the manager decided to call an end to his tenure at the club.
The manager 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.”
Following his announcement, Major have now appointed his replacement.
The club have kept the role in-house, and have appointed current first team captain Robinson to take charge of the first team ahead of next season.
Llantwit announced the appointment on their official Twitter account this season.
