ST ASAPH City Reserves have made a significant addition to their management team next season.

The club confirmed that Sandy Malone will be joining the set-up after his decision to leave his role as first-team manager of Llandudno Amateurs in order to pursue a new challenge.

Malone helped the Amateurs win the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Division One title, and they followed this up with a second consecutive promotion by winning the Premier Division in 2018/19.

They performed well at fourth-tier level in their debut campaign at this particular level before the Football Association of Wakes curtailed the season due to the coronavirus pandemic, but they are now set to drop down again due to their inability to meet the new tier criteria implemented by the governing body.

A St Asaph City FC spokesman, said: “Sandy’s experience within the game will complement our already successful set-up.

“With the tier placement set to be announced next week by the Football Association of Wales, the reserve league will be a great platform and learning opportunity for all the players.”

The Saints also held a virtual presentation evening for their first-team squad for their efforts throughout a difficult season on and off the pitch in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One.

Daniel Williams was the big winner from the event, taking home the Manager’s and Players’ Player of the Year after a standout campaign.

The Chairman’s Player of the Year accolade went to Jason Foulkes, with Josh Brown taking home the top goalscorer distinction.
