RHYL FC are looking to appoint a new Academy Director after Luke Binns confirmed he was leaving his current post.

The popular figure confirmed he will be stepping down at the end of the current season due to increasing work commitments, and the Lilywhites are now accepting applications in regards to a successor.

Binns was appointed to the role in July 2016 and has assisted player development at the club, which has seen the likes of Jack Parry Jones, Ben Lockley and Callum Roberts becoming part of the Lilies’ first team squad towards the end of their Huws Gray Alliance campaign.

Dave Norman, Executive Director of Sport and Education, said: “I would like to thank Luke for his dedication and hard work developing the Academy at Rhyl FC over the last three years.

“This commitment has helped numerous players develop their potential and provide opportunities to reach their footballing aspirations.

“We are keen to see someone come forward with the right experience to keep the momentum moving forward.

“The successful applicant will work closely with myself and Eddie Maurice-Jones to ensure that the philosophy of the club is shared at all age groups with a heavy emphasis on creating a clear pathway for player development.”
