Bangor City have confirmed that player-manager Gary Taylor-Fletcher has left the club to take over as the new manager of Llandudno. Assistant manager Alan Moogan will also leave the club to join Taylor-Fletcher at Llandudno.

The former Blackpool and Leicester City forward joined Bangor as a player in January 2017 and had two spells in charge at the club since March 2017, when he was appointed caretaker player-manager before stepping down to assistant manager when the club appointed Kevin Nicholson in May 2017.

The pair led the club to a second-place finish in the Welsh Premier League during the 2017–18 season. Taylor-Fletcher then went on to sign for Llandudno in November 2018 before returning to the club later that month.

Taylor-Fletcher said: “I just want to say a massive thank you to all at Bangor City and especially club chairman Stephen Vaughan Jr. for giving me my first taste of management.

“The club will always be a big part of my journey into football management and I have loved every minute of it.

“It was a big decision to leave, but after two-and-a-half years I felt the time was right for a new challenge. I look forward to coming back with Llandudno and I’m sure we will both be challenging at the top of the league come the end of next season.”

Bangor City have thanked Taylor-Fletcher and assistant manager Alan Moogan. In a statement Bangor City said: “We would like to thank Fletch and Moogs for their time at the club and wish them luck in their new endeavours.

“The search for a new boss will begin immediately and no further comment will be made at this stage.”
