FLINT

Flint Town United have announced the appointment of Niall McGuinness as 1st Team Manager.

Since the departure of Andy Holden, the club have been in talks with a number of candidates, with the aim being to bring in a suitably qualified coach to ensure our ongoing commitment to retain the Domestic Licence
.
Former Rhyl FC boss McGuinness is a qualified FAW Youth A Licence coach and is actively working towards his senior A licence, currently awaiting assessment. He joins the current coaching staff of Aden Shannon, who has been acting in an interim manager capacity for the last few weeks, and Timmy Williams who is also an A licence holder.

In announcing the appointment, Chairman Darryl Williams, had this to say "I am delighted that Niall has come on board. It was a pre-requisite that we not only obtained the services of a suitably qualified coach but to also recruit someone who has the ability and character to fit into our existing structure, and work with our current coaching staff. Niall absolutely meets that criteria. We are hopeful that Niall and Aden, supported by Timmy, and the backroom staff of Johnny Hill and Paul McAdam can now galvanise the squad and propel us to a top 6 finish, whilst off the field we endeavour to retain the coveted Domestic Licence as we continue to build for the future of this great club"

McGuinness will commence work with the squad immediately and will make his first appearance in the dugout for Flint away at Gresford this coming Saturday.
