FORMER Cefn Druids and Aberystwyth Town manager Alan Morgan is the new manager of Llandudno Town in the Huws Gray Alliance following the recent departure of Deiniol Graham and Mark Hewitt.
Morgan, who was relieved of his duties by Aberystwyth midway through last season, has the Uefa Pro licence and says "I am delighted to join Llandudno FC with the same aspirations as myself. I will be looking for professionalism and a lot of hard work and together we will achieve Welsh Premier football."
As a player, Morgan started his career with Tranmere and went on to make over 70 first-team appearances, before a loan spell at Altrincham during the 1996/97 season and a switch to then Conference outfit Doncaster Rovers in July 2002.
He transferred to Morecambe in December 2002 and then joined Porthmadog in the summer of 2003.
Morgan went to Cefn Druids as player/manager in February 2004, resigning during 2004/5 and being signed by Rhyl.
After a move to Connah's Quay in September 2005 he was appointed assistant manager in July 2006, moving as assistant to Nev Powell at Bangor in the summer of 2007 before leaving to manage the Seasiders in November 2009.
"From a strong list of candidates Alan proved to us to be the perfect fit, both in terms of the way he wants the game played, his contacts within the game along with his experience of managing within the Welsh Premier League," says Llandudno chairman Clive Rushton.
"Alan's looking to bring in new players who can make a difference and guide our correct league position, that's exactly what we need.
"Having said that, we intend to make all our signings with a view to the long term.
"Our aim is premier league football and the board firmly believe we have the man in place to help us achieve that," Rushton added.
