LLANDUDNO FC’S academy is shaping up for the 2012/13 season after four club coaches passed their UEFA B licences.
The Welsh Alliance Club’s junior coaches Sean Eardley, Grant Montgomery, Dylan Williams and Rikky Jones have all achieved their coaching badges over recent weeks, bringing the number of UEFA B licence coaches at the club to seven.
Clive Rushton, Llandudno’s Academy Manager, said: “The fact that four of our coaches have all passed their licence in the last few weeks is a fantastic achievement, and will certainly help us attract more players.”
“I don’t think there’s a club in the whole of Wales who have so many academy coaches qualified to that level”.
