RHYL FC are on the lookout for a new head groundsman after Kevin Warner announced he is stepping down at the end of the season.

Newly appointed managing director Adam Roche will be tasked with finding a replacement for Warner, who is a former player at the Huws Gray Alliance side and has done a sterling job in the role.

This has resulted in the Educate Group Stadium surface becoming one of the best anywhere in the Welsh domestic system, with the club only having one game postponed due to a waterlogged or frozen surface during Warner’s time in the role.

Chairman Paul Higginson, said: “Kevin has a long and proud history with the Club and has made his mark with Rhyl FC on the pitch; both as a player and more recently ensuring that our current players have had a first class playing surface.

“I’m sure Kevin will remain an ardent fan of the Club and we all hope to see him around the ground in the future as a supporter.

“The person taking on the role will be inheriting first class facilities at Rhyl and the management of the hallowed turf will be a strong attraction to anyone wanting to take on the role. “

The club are also looking for volunteers to come forward ahead of next season who can offer help in roles such as match day support, ground maintenance, social media and fundraising.

Training will be available to anyone coming forward to help the club.

Mr Roche, who is taking over from Mike Jones, added: “Volunteering with Rhyl FC is a great opportunity for people of all ages, volunteers will be part of a team where they can develop skills and confidence which could assist people boosting their employment or career opportunities or provide an avenue for people seeking to keep active following retirement.”

Anyone wishing to apply for the position or for more information on volunteering contact Mr Roche on adamroche@rhylfc.co.uk.
