Brazil takes Haverfordwest post
Principality Welsh Premier League
Haverfordwest have appointed former Manchester United and Cardiff defender Derek Brazil as their new manager.

The 37-year-old Irishman succeeds Deryn Brace, who resigned last week because of increasing work commitments.

Brazil made just two appearances for United before joining Oldham and then Swansea on loan.

He finished his professional career at Cardiff in 1996, but played on for Haverfordwest and Inter Cardiff in the Welsh Premier until five years ago.

"He has been a Cardiff City Development Officer and has a wealth of coaching experience on his CV," said a Haverfordwest statement.

Brazil has a long wait before taking charge of his first game in charge as the Bluebirds are not in action until the Welsh Premier match with Rhyl on 21 October.

Haverfordwest turned to Brazil to fill the void left by Brace, who intends to stay with the club as a player.

Brace, 31, who took the Bluebirds job in 2002, was the youngest manager in the Welsh Premier division.

He took the club to their best league finish of third in 2003/4. They were fourth in 2004/5 and eighth last year, but have yet to win this season.
