Davenport takes Colwyn Bay reins

Davenport quit as Bangor manager in December
Former England striker Peter Davenport has been named as the new manager of Colwyn Bay.

Davenport, 45, quit as Bangor City manager in December - just a month after winning the Welsh Premier manager of the month award.

The Seagulls' new boss has formerly held the top job at Macclesfield Town.

Davenport starred for Manchester United, Nottingham Forest, Sunderland and Middlesbrough in a distinguished playing career, winning one cap.

In that time he played under the likes of Brian Clough and Alex Ferguson, valuable experience to bring to Llanelian Road.

"Peter has been impressed with the ambitions of the board to achieve sustained progression through the pyramid and is looking forward to the challenge of leading the Bay," says a statement on Colwyn Bay's website.

"As well as finalising his back room staff, he will be contacting the current squad in the next few days before starting to bring in new recruits ahead of pre season training."

Davenport succeeds Adie Jones, who was sacked last month after two years in charge of the Seagulls.
