CONWY Borough manger Warren Gibbs has been rewarded for his side’s excellent recent form with a coveted award.

The former Glantraeth boss has made a highly impressive start to life at Y Morfa, and the recent appointment secured the Huws Gray Alliance Manager of the Month accolade for January after overseeing an unbeaten run of four matches throughout the month that saw the Tangerines’ surge up the standings.

This included victories over Guilsfield, Denbigh Town and Holywell Town, in addition to a draw with Buckley Town to make it ten points from a possible 12 throughout the month.

Gibbs, said: “It’s great to win the award but it really has been a collective effort by myself, Dave Cavanagh , Colin Davies, Colin Edwards and every member of the squad.”

The club have also announced that their upcoming match against Prestatyn Town on March 8 will be played in support of the Football versus Homophobia initiative.

The cause exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity at all levels of football.

Chairman Chris Wilton, said: “When we became aware of the campaign we felt it was important for the club to lend its support.

“Conwy Borough has zero tolerance for homophobic discrimination, and we are delighted to be able to highlight and raise awareness of the issue.

“For the game against Prestatyn our kit supplier, SK Kits, has designed a one-off rainbow themed shirt that will display the Football vs Homophobia logo.

“We are very grateful for the league granting us permission to wear the shirt for the fixture and we will be doing all we can to get behind the campaign.”
