There is a major overhaul at Costcutter Football League club Cardigan Town and on the evidence of the initial training session the future appears bright for the Magpies.

Shortly after the appointment of former midfielder and Goodwick United star James Evans as player/manager the club swooped to appoint talented ex-defender and player/manager Steve Blackford as head coach.

Further developments behind the scenes have resulted in the most successful manager in the club’s history Seamus Doherty, who led the Magpies to an unprecedented clean sweep of trophies up for grabs in season 2014-15, taking the chairmanship.

Long-serving secretary Dai Morgan has stood down and is replaced by Will Bowen.

After last week’s first training session at King George V Playing Field new supremo Doherty said: “We had many promising youngsters coming through last season, and the enthusiasm already shown with more than 30 players in training must be great for the club.

“We all wish James Evans the best of luck and to have Blackie there as coach is obviously a huge boost,” he said and added that in future after match gatherings will be at Cardigan Rugby Club.
