CARNO Football Club have unveiled Gwynfor Edwards as their new manager.

Edwards was unveiled on Tuesday and succeeds Chris Davies at the helm at Ty Brith following the latter’s resignation a fortnight ago.

Edwards arrives having previously managed Kidwelly Town while also masterminding two cup final victories for Ceredigoin League side Llandysul last season.

The highly respected coach also has experience with home town club Llanelli Town in the JD Cymru South while working in the women’s game at Aberystwyth Town.

Edwards said: “I would like to thank Llandysul for being understanding and being an absolutely wonderful club to work with but the opportunity to work at Carno was too much to resist.

“Carno are such an established club with so much potential.

“We’ve got to start by steadying the ship, and then we’ll set about doing the only thing I strive to do in football which has always been to play better football than everyone else.

“I’ve earned my reputation as a ‘total football’ man and don’t intend on changing that now.”

Meanwhile the MMP-NL Mid Wales League One club will look to consolidate after the departure of Davies and several key players.

A statement read: “Gwynfor is a young coach with both qualifications and experience. We wish him all the best and look forward to getting started.”

Edwards has wasted little time in bolstering his squad with several new additions.

Arriving at Ty Brith are Rob Davies, Dan Rowlands, Ryan Clemson and Sam Jones while striker Ioan Humphreys returns from local rivals Caersws.
