THREE of the region’s leading clubs will be under new management in next season’s MMP Mid Wales League.

Knighton Town have appointed ex-Presteigne manager Adriano Girolami to succeed Adam Worton who has stood down after four years at the helm at Bryn-Y-Castell.

A club statement said: “Adam did an outstanding job and built one of the best Knighton sides in memory and we are thankful for his services to the club.

“Adriano will bring his own ideas to the club and also has an excellent reputation with coaching young players which will benefit the club.”

Meanwhile Gareth Jones has been appointed manager of Llandrindod Wells for a second time.

“I’m excited about the prospect of managing my hometown club again in the toughest and most competitive league for many years. It’s going to be a fresh challenge with new players and I cannot wait to get started.”

Builth Wells will be led by ex-Rhayader Town manager Dylan McPhee and assistant Jason Samuel upon their return to the Mid Wales League.

“The club has great facilities and hard working committee,” said McPhee. “I’m looking forward to the challenge.

“I will need to add depth but will not be making any wholesale changes as the current squad is good enough to make the step up and finish as high as possible.

“Jason has loads of experience at this level and we are both looking forward to the season.”
