Rhys was delighted to join Matts management team and had the following to say about his appointment..

“Firstly, I’d like to thank Driscoll for giving me the opportunity and putting trust in my ability as a coach.

When he asked me to come in as his number 2 it was an easy decision for myself, the past 2 seasons at Pontypridd United have been great learning experiences at the top level in welsh football.

Using these experiences, in cohesion with Matthew’s knowledge and ability as a manager I believe it is an exciting time for Cinderford Town. The hard work has already started behind the scenes & I am very excited to get started. “

As a club we are delighted to keep Morf involved with the club and alongside Rhys will provide an incredibly high level of coaching.

Having spoken to Matt, it was clear he has a real drive to succeed and has already worked exceptionally hard behind the scenes. I feel it’s going to be an exciting time to be part of the club and I am looking forward to working with both Matt and Rhys over the coming season. “
