Aberystwyth Town have appointed Tony Pennock as their First Team Manager, with Wayne Jones as his Assistant Manager, while previous Manager Matthew Bishop has left the Club.
Tony, a Pro Licence holder, took over as Assistant Manager in April 2017 and with Wayne Jones oversaw a dramatic late season upsurge in form as two enormous wins at Llandudno and at home to Rhyl ensured the Black and Greens' WPL Status with a game to spare.
Wayne Jones, known throughout Welsh Football as Wolvesey, was forced to stand down as Club Assistant Manager in April but the Club is delighted to confirm that the FAW Trust last week re-admitted him to their A Licence course, meaning he can resume the role he carried out for the majority of last season.
Matthew Bishop, who has been on gardening leave from his role as First Team Manager since March, has left the Club with immediate effect.
Chairman Donald Kane said: "After a season of transition it was important to us to have some continuity, to ensure that the spirit the side showed in late March and April is carried through to next season. Tony's vast experience within the game, and his relationship with Wayne and the Players, made him the standout candidate and we are delighted to confirm him in the role of First Team Manager."
"Wayne also made a huge contribution to the Team's improvement at the end of the season and it was only right that he should be reinstated as Assistant Manager."
"On behalf of the Board of Directors I'd like to express my gratitude to Matthew Bishop for his hard work at the Club over the past year and sincerely wish him all the best in his future career."
Details of Aberystwyth Town's first pre-season friendlies will be released in the next few days.
