AFTER quitting the managerial role at Conwy Borough last week, Chris Herbert has returned to Gap Connah's Quay as a member of the first team coaching staff.

Herbert played 39 times for the Nomads between 2007 and 2010 scoring 14 goals in all competitions and has also played for Airbus UK Broughton and Welshpool Town in the Welsh Premier, along with spells at Vauxhall Motors and Chester City in the English pyramid.

"As soon as Chris left Conwy, I felt it was just what the club needed - he joins the club at the right time and he boosts our great back room team," says player-manager Mark McGregor.

"I am delighted to be back at the Nomads," Herbert says.

"Everyone knows what I think of the club and as soon as Mark gave me the opportunity to come in, it was one I couldn't turn down.

"Mark is a good friend of mine and if I can help him and the club get back to winning ways, then I am happy to help.

"As an ex-player, I know the club and most of the current players inside out - the hard work starts straight away with our aim still to get into the top six.  

"If we don't achieve that then seventh spot is a bare minimum.

"We've got three or four quality additions lined-up to add some competition to the squad and we are more than capable of reaching the Europa League playoffs again.  

"Although the last eight results have not gone according to plan, I am more than confident that we can turn it around and quickly move back up the table."
