LLANDUDNO have appointed Caernarfon Town boss Iwan Williams as their new manager to succeed Alan Morgan, who was sacked last week.

The 32-year-old joined the Canaries in the summer of 2015 and, in his first season at the helm, won the Huws Gray Alliance title only to be denied promotion by the club's failure to gain the FAW's domestic licence. Town finished runners-up to Prestatyn last season and are the current league leaders.

An ex-club captain of the Seasiders, Williams will take immediate control of all first team matters on and off the field at Maesdu Park.

"Iwan has a great affinity with Llandudno Football Club, having played and captained the side in the past for many years," says a statement from the club. "He has done an outstanding job in his first managerial appointment and turned Caernarfon Town FC into a title winning team, and probable promotion candidates.

"He now feels it is time to take the next step in his managerial career and that his old club Llandudno FC is an ideal fit for his ambitions, which following his interview clearly match our own.

"As a club it was not a difficult decision, as despite his lack of experience at Welsh Premier League level, he is extremely ambitious, focused and professional, and is the perfect replacement to follow in the success we have enjoyed in recent seasons.

"Iwan is hoping to embark on the upcoming UEFA Pro license and is held in high regard by the Welsh footballing fraternity, he has an excellent pedigree, great local contacts, and an excellent work ethic both in football and on a personal level. He has a real appreciation of our club ethos, the uniqueness of the Welsh football pyramid, and being a local man brings a lot of off field experience to us too."

Sean Yeardley will take interim charge of Caernarfon, who face a top of the table clash at Airbus UK Broughton next Saturday.
