CHRIS Davies has spoken of his pride after being unveiled as manager of Llanidloes Town.

The former Carno chief returns to the club he once represented after the departure of Hugh Clarke earlier this month.

Davies had been joint-manager at Ardal North East League club Caersws but found the prospect of managing his hometown club in the JD Cymru North irresistable.

Davies said: "I’m proud and feel very honoured to have been given the opportunity to manage my hometown club and on a personal note to have to chance to take a step up to tier two. I’m relishing the opportunity and challenge ahead."

A club spokesman welcomed Davies to Victoria Avenue.

A spokesman said: "The club is very pleased to announce the arrival of Chris to the first team management team.

"Chris comes in as the manager and previous manager Dave Jarman will carry on in an assistant role along side player assistant manager Adam Worton.

"With Chris being a local lad and gaining a lot of experience at Carno where he earned a reputation as one of the best managers in tier three, it brings us great joy to have him at the helm for our return to football in tier two.

"Chris is an ambitious young manager and his ambitions match the clubs.

"Everywhere he has been, he has left them in a better shape. We are all excited to start this new chapter and everyone wishes Chris good luck and we are sure the masses of Daffs fans will offer their best wishes and support too."
