Gary Taylor-Fletcher becomes the new manager of Llandudno FC

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno FC are delighted to announce that Gary Taylor-Fletcher is the new manager of the club, following discussions that took place last week.

“"We have a long time to wait but the hard work will start now"” Gary Taylor-Fletcher

Gary is well-known throughout British football, in particularly for his playing career at
Blackpool and Leicester in the English Premier League, and recently had his first job in management at fellow North Walian club Bangor City.

He had a brief playing spell at the club last season where he scored three goals in two games, before taking the lead role at Bangor City in the Cymru Alliance league.

Club Director and General Manager Sam Williams has said the club are delighted to have Gary as manager of the club.

“Being able to bring Gary back to the club in the Manager’s role creates an exciting next chapter for the club. To have someone who has played at the highest level at the helm matches our ambition as a club.”

“We may have suffered relegation, but we haven’t lost any of the desire to succeed, and we believe that Gary can help bring us that success moving forward.”

Taylor-Fletcher has said his time at the club last season helped him in making the decision to come back to the club as manager.

“After the last two and a half seasons being player-manager of Bangor City, I wanted to stay involved in a managerial position in semi-professional football, as this fits well with my other ventures currently in place.”

“Obviously having previously been at Llandudno as a player, I know the set-up, the squad and what the board want to achieve, which helped me in making the decision to come to
the club.” Said GTF.

“This will help the transition be smooth as I already have a knowledge of the club and how it runs, we have a long time to wait but the hard work will start now.”

Following last season’s disappointing relegation from the Welsh Premier League but Gary is confident that the club can challenge to get back this season.

“Last season was a huge disappointment for the club and getting relegated will obviously affect the club. It will be a very tough league this year but I’m confident that we will be challenging come the end of the season.

“It’s over eight weeks until pre-season begins but the preparation has already begun. Recruitment and sorting the friendlies will be key to having a successful off-season.” Said Gary.

Taylor Fletcher has admitted that there will undoubtedly be interest from Welsh Premier League clubs in some of the current crop of lads at the club, but has said there is a few who he wants to keep here.

“I’ve spoke to the majority of the lads and there is a few who I want to stay, but there is also a few who want to stay in the Welsh Premier League and they all will have plenty of admirers.”

“I haven’t put a time scale to any of them yet but we will be speaking to other players every day and building a squad capable of being successful, and we will update the fans regarding this over the next few days and weeks.”

Gary will be joining us as player-manager and we are all delighted here at the club to have him on board leading this club in the up and coming FAW Championship North starting in August 2019.
