Paul Inns has been appointed coach to the North Wales under 15s academy by the Football Association of Wales (FAW).

The UEFA B licence coach is currently head coach of Berriew Juniors and Newtown under 16s as well as assistant coach at Berriew Football Club.

Inns will prepare the North Wales side for the forthcoming Cymru Cup.

“I’m delighted to take on this new role,” said Inns. “It’s also a good reflection upon the quality of coaches in the Central Wales area.”

Fellow Berriew coach Gareth Watkins will soon become a UEFA A licence coach with Inns hopeful more coaches from the region will look to climb the ladder.

“We have several UEFA B Licence coaches in the area who make contributions to developing players in accordance with the FAW which has created a pathway to enable anyone interested in coaching to get involved at Football Leaders Award level and progress in a managed structure.

Aspiring coaches are invited to contact Inns on 07801240097 for more details.
