New management team appointed at Cefni FC


NORTH Wales Coast West Division One side Cefni have announced two new managers this week following the resignation of Danny Jones from the role.

He had put a side together at Cefni which looks like being solid squad making some very good additions over the summer months, including former Trearddur Bay Bulls attackers Matty Roberts and Gwynfor Owen.

The club up its first league win in a 5-2 victory over Llanystumdwy on Saturday.

But Jones has now stepped away from the role due to ‘work and family commitments’.

A statement from the club read: “The Club wish to announce the resignation of our manager Danny Jones due to work and family commitments we wish Danny all the best and thank him for all his commitment and hard work over the last few months he has definitely improved the club both on and off the pitch.”

As a result, Graham Jones and Dan Richards have taken over as the management team. Jones, known as ‘Squeeze’ will be player-manager whilst Richards will be his assistant and also a player for the squad.

37-year-old Jones (above) has been with the Llangefni-based club since it was formed as an Anglesey League team ahead of the 2018/19 season and his brother Hugh Alan, 34, also plays for the club.

The experienced centre back is never afraid to stick the boot in and starts attacks well from the back for his side.

Richards (below), 41, is another vastly experienced player who plays as a full-back and previously represented the likes of Ogwen Tigers and Bethesda Athletic.
