MANAGER Neil Gibson has tonight committed to three more years at newly-promoted Prestatyn Town.

The 37-year-old has been in charge of the Seasiders for 10 years, guiding them to promotion to the Welsh Premier in 2008 and again this season, one year after relegation.

Under Gibson, the club achieved a highest-ever WPL finish of fifth in 2011 and 2013, when they also lifted the Welsh Cup and went on to win a Europa League tie against Metalurgs of Latvia.

A former midfielder and one-time Wales Under-21 international who played alongside the likes of Danny Gabbidon, Robbie Earnshaw and Layton Maxwell, Gibson made one Football League appearance for Tranmere Rovers on 21 November 1998, coming on as a late substitute in a 3-1 Championship home defeat against Norwich.

He also had spells with Sheffield Wednesday, Rhyl, Southport, Halesowen and Leigh RMI before returning to Prestatyn in the 2005/6 campaign, going on to score 17 goals for the club from 144 (+10) WPL appearances before hanging-up his boots.
