Tim ChannonClub News

COLWYN BAY are to advertise for a new manager after parting company this evening with Ash Hoskin by mutual consent.

Assistant manager and Head of Recruitment Phil Staley has also resigned.

Despite a gritty 0-0 draw at Ilkeston today with ten men,  the parting of the ways was confirmed after the game with affairs off as well  as on the pitch being a factor for both sides.

Senior players Rob Hopley and Mike Lea are likely take charge of the team for Tuesday’s important game at Skelmersdale United.

It has been a difficult time  with a number of lengthy injuries to key players and the team have managed only three wins in 16 league and cup games this season, although they have not always had the rub of the green.

An injury-hit squad also suffered a costly heavy defeat at Workington in the opening round of the FA Cup.

Chairman David Tichener said: “We are sad that things have not worked out, but after a promising pre-season, results, particularly at home, have been disappointing and that has been frustrating for everyone concerned. We would like to thank Ash and Phil for all the hard work they have put in over the last five months and wish them all the best for the future.”

 The club are now inviting applications for the vacant manager’s post from suitably qualified individuals who would like to be an integral part of Colwyn Bay Football Club in the Evostik Northern Premier League.
