BALA Town Reserves manager Adam Galdo has decided to step down from the role.

Galdo took to Twitter on October 21 to make the announcement, citing the handling of Welsh football during the Coronavirus pandemic as one of his reasons for leaving the role.

He said: "It is with a heavy heart I have stepped down as joint manager of Bala Town Reserves today.

"I want to thank all the players that have contributed to making it an enjoyable time as I experienced my first role in management. Starting a team from scratch really is not an easy thing to do, especially with being so inexperienced at the time.

"I feel like I have gained valuable experience and take pride in having been a part of starting something special for the community here in Bala. It was great being part of an established club and I would like to express my sincere thanks to Nigel, Ruth, and the others who helped me along the way.

"Lastly, I want to thank Daf and Al for all the work they have put in since starting this too. It was an absolute pleasure doing it with you. I am going to carry on with my C license as I am over half way through now and hopefully one day, I will return to football.

"During the current climate with Coronavirus and the Welsh FA being an absolute embarrassment in regards to grassroots football in Wales, my love for the game is at an all time low! I wish the club all the very best and will continue to support when I can. Diolch."

In response, a Bala Town spokesperson said: "The club totally respect Adam’s decision due to the current climate, and know how hard of a decision it was to make.

"Everyone involved with the Club would like to thank Adam for his hard work and dedication to the club during his time as joint manager, and would like to send our best wishes to him for the future."

Following discussions with new manager Daf Hughes, Galdo decided to sign as a player for the Reserves ahead of the forthcoming season.
