Huw Griffiths

HUW Griffiths returned to Cefn Druids as manager in May 2015 after an absence of 12 months, during which he was first team coach at Bala Town.

Griffiths, who holds the Uefa Pro licence as well as boasting a Sports Science degree, was manager of Welshpool in the Welsh Premier for 18 months, but quit once the club's relegation to the Huws Gray Alliance was confirmed when the league was reduced to 12 clubs at the end of the season 2009/10. He then took over at Druids in May 2010 following the end-of-season departure of Waynne Phillips.

Griffiths led the club to a Welsh Cup final and the Europa League before gaining promotion to the Welsh Premier as the 2013/14 Alliance champions. But he then stepped down, along with his assistant Terry Ingram, after being unable to agree a playing budget for next season.

An ex-Wales schoolboy international, Griffiths made 90 Welsh Premier appearances as a player for Newtown. After his playing career was cut short by injury, he was Peter Davenport's right-hand man at both Farrar Road and Southport and also had a brief spell as assistant to former Bangor midfielder Simon Davies at Chester City.
