CONWY Borough have moved quickly to replace Gareth Thomas with the appointment of Warren Gibbs.

The talented young boss arrives at Y Morfa from Gwynedd League side Glantraeth, which he reformed last summer after a year away from the game due to their inability to secure a licence to compete in the Huws Gray Alliance.

Club chairman Chris Wilton, said: "We felt that it was important to move quickly to appoint a new manager to give him maximum preparation time ahead of the game against Gresford on December 15.

“Warren has a great track record and he has already worked with several of our players when they were at Glantraeth which was a big positive for us.

“The board are really pleased to have secured the appointment and we look forward to working with him."

Gibbs is already familiar with a large number of the current Tangerines squad, who were all part of his Glantraeth side that won the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One title in 2016.

He will immediately be tasked with ending a run of poor results that has seen Boro slip to tenth in the second tier standings following an outstanding start under Thomas, assistant Alun Winstanley and coach Sara Hilton.

Gibbs, said: "Conwy is a great club and the set up is excellent. I couldn't turn down the opportunity to manage a team in the Cymru Alliance and I am really looking forward to linking up with the players.

“I am well aware that it’s a tough league and it will be a real challenge, but one that I will relish and step up to."
