PRESTATYN Town FC has confirmed Wayne Jones as its new general manager.

Jones, who already manages the Seasiders’ new-look reserves side, said he is hoping to help steer progress at the club as it pushes for a return to the Welsh Premier League.

The 40-year-old’s appointment is part of a sea change in personnel at Bastion Gardens since new manager Ben Heath took over the helm earlier this year.

“Being made general manager of Prestatyn Town means a lot to me,” said Jones, who coached Prestatyn Athletic youth teams for 15 years before becoming reserves manager two years ago.

. “I want the club to be very successful and get back to the Welsh Premier where we belong.

“I will make sure the club is ticking over correctly and that we’re doing all the right things, such as working with sponsors and getting the stadium up to scratch.

“The improvements are already happening under Ben Heath and we are getting the academy going under Ryan Turner. We’re all working in the same direction and coaches realise we are pushing in the right direction.

“It has been fantastic to have the fans back and now we want to get more in, and to let the community know that Prestatyn Town is getting back to where we should be.”

Town have had a mixed start in the JD Cymru North League under Heath, in seventh place with two wins, two draws and a loss. The side drew 1-1 at home to Conwy Borough on Saturday, August 21, but there are signs for further progress as Heath is working to blending his squad following more than a dozen summer signings.

Prestatyn Town FC said: “Wayne has already started working hard for the club by helping run the Tea Bar on match days and also work around the ground. Welcome on to the club Wayne.”
