NEW Llandudno boss Iwan Williams has appointed Matty Williams as his assistant manager.

The 35-year-old leaves Connah's Quay Nomads and will be registered as a player for the Seasiders once the January transfer window opens.

St Asaph-born Williams, who is a former Wales Under-21 international, joined Manchester United as a 16-year-old. He spent five years at Old Trafford without ever breaking into the first team and went on to play for Notts County, where he made 26 appearances, Tamworth and Burton Albion before joining Rhyl in July 2008.

After two seasons at Belle Vue, where he top-scored in 2009/10, he left to join The New Saints in June 2010 and again topped the goal charts during his six years at Park Hall, before joining the Nomads. He has scored a total of 90 goals from his 157 (+58) WPL appearances to date and also made 20 appearances in Europe scoring four goals.

"Not only are we acquiring a great person and an UEFA A Licence coach, but we’re also gaining a fantastic footballer who has still so much to offer on the pitch as well as from a coaching perspective," says Iwan Williams.
