Bangor appoint Powell as manager
Welsh Premier League
Bangor City have appointed Neville Powell as their new manager.

Powell, a former Bangor midfielder, ends a 14-year reign at Connah's Quay Nomads to replace Steve Bleasdale, who resinged at the end of the season.

He becomes Bangor's 14th manager since the Welsh Premier's inception in 1992, and his ex-Nomads assistant Alan Morgan has followed him to Farrar Road.

"There is no doubt that Neville is the right man for the job," said Bangor City chairman Ken Jones.

"He has taken Connah's Quay to the brink of Europe despite financial constraints.

"He has an undoubted commitment to, and knowledge of, the Welsh Premier League, and importantly has historic roots with Bangor City FC, who have always held him in high esteem.

"The last two managerial appointments have, on reflection, been mistaken.

"Clayton Blackmore, although a good player and servant to the club over many years, had no managerial experience, and this quickly revealed itself in the club's dismal performances under his leadership.

"Steve Bleasdale, whilst bringing in professionalism sorely needed after Blackmore's reign, could not adopt to the WPL system."
