CLIVE Morgan has taken the helm as manager of Borth United Football Club.

The long serving clubman has taken on the new role as player-manager.

Morgan succeeds Ian Lewis at Uppingham Field with coach Bryn McGilligan-Oliver also stepping down.

A club spokesman said: “After eight years of managing the first team Ian Lewis has stepped down.

“A big thank you from the club for all the hard work that goes unnoticed.

“We are pleased to say though he will still be involved with the club.

“Bryn also steps down after two seasons coaching the first team.

“Thanks to Bryn for the fresh ideas, organisation and professionalism while coaching.”

Confirming Morgan as the new manager, the spokesman added: “We are happy to announce that Clive will now take on the role as player-manager. We are looking forward to seeing the main man at work, hopefully sooner rather than later.”

The club competed in the second division of the MMP-NL Mid Wales League last season but is currently waiting on news of their application to join the new north west league which will be launched at national level three next season.
