RUTHIN Town Football Club say they are 'delighted' to have been able to announce their new management team this week.

With Chris Hardy stepping down from the role of first team manager last month, the Cymru North side had been on the lookout for someone to replace him ever since.

With that in mind, Town have this week appointed Phil Hudson and Tommy Holmes as their new manager and assistant respectively, with Ste Connor serving as first team coach,

The trio have an impressive track record with Brymbo, Ashville and Woodchurch Athletic, winning honours at every club they’ve managed.

Excited over the new appointments, Ruthin Town chairman Alan Jones said; “Phil Hudson is clearly a talented manager and a B licence coach whilst Tommy Holmes played for TNS for over 15 years and is currently undertaking his B licence. Ste is also an ex pro who is a talented coach.

"Their record is excellent and they both come highly recommended. We believe that they have taken on board what we are trying to do at Ruthin and we are delighted that they have decided to join us.”

New Ruthin Town manager Phil Hudson said; “We are delighted to take up this opportunity to come and work with this talented young group. We can’t wait to get hands on once we are allowed to do so.

"I look forward to speaking to all the players and getting their views on things. We believe we are a good management team and we will give it everything we have to make it a success.”
