Sion Parry and Kieron Jones will join the Academy this season to join our Under 10’s team as coaches for the new season. Both lads are from the Bala area and another great local addition to the Academy.

Antonio is currently studying football coaching in Glyndwr University, has completed the FAW C Certificate and is pre enrolled to UEFA B licence.

Academy Director Andy Kelly stated;
“It’s great to now have all the coaches in place before our trials and pre season and puts us ahead for the start of the season. Myself, Jack and Carwyn have worked hard to bring in the right people, keeping to the spirit of having local Welsh speaking coaches in our foundation and youth phases.
