Ian Dawes was appointed as the full-time manager of Bangor City at the end of November 2016 after the Citizens parted company with Andy Legg.
Dawes, who holds a UEFA 'A' Licence, spent nearly 10 years in different roles working within the Liverpool academy before leaving to become head coach of Floriana FC in Malta, where City's current director of football Stephen Vaughan Jr was president. He was dismissed just over a year later after a defeat to fellow relegation strugglers Vittoriosa Stars.
A month later Dawes was appointed to succeed former Newtown and Port Talbot manager Bernard McNally as head of academy coaching at Shrewsbury Town.
As a player, midfielder Dawes was an Everton schoolboy and, after playing in Canada, joined Caernarfon Town from Kidsgrove Athletic in 2008 having previously played for Marine and went on to make 11 (+5) appearances for the Canaries in the Welsh Premier League, scoring twice.
