Bow Street Football Club can announce that first team Manager, Barry Williams has resigned after five years in the post.
Barry has been involved in coaching at the club for 18 continuous seasons – ten within the junior setup, three with the Reserves and the last five with the first team. He feels it is time for a break, both for him personally and an opportunity for the club to make a change.
Barry said, ‘It has been an honour and a huge privilege to have played and managed this great club. I have so many happy memories of my time at the club, and especially enjoyed seeing players develop all the way from junior level in to the first team. We all, as players, officials etc’ need to enjoy and appreciate what we have in Bow Street.’
Chairman Wyn Lewis stated, ‘ I was very sorry to hear from Barry that he wanted to stand down as Manager, but fully understand and accept his reasons, with what has been a difficult decision for him, one he has not taken lightly. On behalf of all involved with the club, I would like to thank Barry and his family for the enormous contribution and commitment given over so many years. As is the nature of football there have been many highs as well as lows, but obviously one major highlight was winning the Mid Wales League Cup in Carno in May 2018 under his managership, but Barry and Ann will have many great memories over the 18 years. He is hugely respected by all within the club and also by many in the wider football community.’
We hopefully will have an opportunity in the near future to formally thank Barry for his great service to Bow Street FC, and I do hope that Barry will contribute in some form to the club in future as well.
The club will announce the identity of the new manager in due course.
Gwas da, gwas ffyddlon.
