CAERNARFON Town manager Sean Eardley has been snubbed for a major award despite a sensational season from his side.

The Canaries’ boss guided the club to a superb first season back at JD Welsh Premier League level, but this has not resulted in the popular figure making the WPL Manager of the Year short.

Eardley has done a tremendous job at The Oval since taking over from Iwan Williams, guiding the Cofis’ to the Huws Gray Alliance title and an elusive promotion to the top-flight, and they immediately made their presence felt at the top of the Welsh pyramid on their way to a fourth-place finish.

Unfortunately for their loyal fan base, they fell short in the Europa League playoff with defeat to eventually qualifiers Cardiff Met, but there are plenty of reasons for optimism ahead of another critical summer for the club in relation to their overall progression.

Double-winning manager Scott Ruscoe from The New Saints is one of the four up for the award, with Connah’s Quay’s Andy Morrison, Barry Town United’s Gavin Chesterfield and Cardiff Met’s Dr Christian Edwards making up the list.
