Following significant investment and growth in our academy, the club are pleased to announce Nathan Nurton as our Head of Foundation Phase.

Nathan re-joins the club at an exciting time and will lead our young players through their vital early steps in football.

Nathan has extensive experience at foundation phase with both Cardiff and Swansea City. Whilst he has previously been Head of Player Development for the Vale of Glamorgan Football Academy.

Damian Flynn, Head of Coaching and Academy Director commented:

“I’m delighted to have someone of Nathan’s experience on board. We see the foundation phase as critical stage in our players development. He’s another local coach who knows the local landscape very well and has a proven track record of player development.”

Louis Gerrard Departs

Today we say our goodbyes to Louis Gerrard.

Louis joined us from Caerau Ely in March 2016 and proved an instant hit with the supporters due to his honest and hardworking style. Along the way Louis has made 83 appearances scoring 14 goals; whilst winning Division 1, securing promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League and qualifying for the Europa League. 

Manager Gavin Chesterfield commented:

“Louis joined us at an important time and contributed hugely to our success in winning promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League and beyond. It’s fair to say Louis would have liked to play more football in recent times but he has played a vital role in the squad and I thank him for all he has done for us.  I’m sure Louis leaves with nothing but fond memories of his time at Jenner Park.” 

We wish Louis all the very best in his next move and thank him for many years of service to our club.
