PRESTATYN Town have appointed Chris Jones as first team manager as the club looks to build for next season.

The club, who recently successfully appealed a decision to reject their application for a Tier 2 licence, have brought Mr Jones over from AFC Knowsley, where he won a league title.

Club Chairman Jamie Welsh said: “I am delighted to have Chris on board with us at the club.

“When I spoke with him I felt he was the right person to move the club in the right direction and bring stability.

“He is well thought of in the game and I hope all the Town fans will get behind him from the start.”

Joining Jones will be assistants Marc and Graham Seddon.

New manager Chris Jones said the decision was a “no-brainer” and added he was “delighted to be given this opportunity” by Prestatyn Town FC.

“I knew it was the correct next step for me and given time I am confident I will build a team the fans will be proud of once again.”

The move follows the announcement of new General Manager Chris Dean.
