COLWYN BAY Football Club have announced that Mr Bill Murray has been appointed as the new Vice-Chairman following a board meeting last night.
A supporter of the club for 70 years, he fills the vacancy left by Kurtis Chapman’s resignation last month.
Bill says: “I remember as a small boy my dad came home from the war in 1947 and took me to my first Bay game, and I have supported the club ever since.”
He became a member of the board of directors about six years ago and has been the club’s Treasurer for a number of years.
After three difficult seasons, he says he is looking forward to the new campaign.
“The board are feeling confident we can have a good season,” he says. “I think in Phill Hadland we now have the right man as manager who can take us forward. He has signed some good players and is putting a strong squad together, so I am feeling very optimistic.”
The Bay’s first pre-season game is away to Fflint Town United in just over three weeks time on July 1st, followed by a home game against Welsh Premier League neighbours Llandudno on Tuesday July 11th.

Corrigan played in 44 of Bay’s 48 games, scoring two goals from left back, and made 56 appearances in two spells at the club, while Roddy played 22 times.
