Aberystwyth Town Football Club have appointed Ian Hughes as first team manager following Tomi Morgan’s resignation last week.

Hughes, 29, is one of the youngest coaches in Wales to have achieved the Uefa A licence and was previously assistant to Morgan at Park Avenue. He is also based with the Welsh Football Trust as a Coach and Player Development Officer for the last four years.

Joining Hughes’ backroom team are club captain, Wyn Thomas, who becomes Assistant Manager, and Antonio Corbisiero, who will take on the role of first team Coach.

“It’s a privilege to be asked to take the club forward and build upon the strong foundations that have been set,” Hughes told the club’s official website.

“The club prides itself on its strong community links and with such a strong, loyal fan base it gives us a great opportunity to move forward together.

“Sustainability is key and it’s great that Wyn Thomas has accepted my offer of becoming the club’s Assistant Manager with Antonio Corbisiero becoming first team Coach as well as being an important player on the pitch.

“Finally I would like to thank (previous Aberystwyth Town manager), Alan Morgan and Tomi Morgan. Tomi has been supportive of my appointment which I appreciate, and I look forward to starting in my new role.”
