ST ASAPH City have confirmed a host of exciting developments to the club’s structure during a busy summer so far.

Talented Saints’ manager Daniel Brewerton revealed to The Journal that the club has received funding for a new 100-seater stand, which is set to be completed by the autumn.

This is a significant boost in relation to the city side complying with the new criteria for third-tier sides, which will be implemented by the Football Association of Wales next year.

A number of additional developments have also been taking place during a busy summer, with the Saints’ reserve side moving from the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League to the Welsh Alliance structure under a new management team that will be revealed in the coming days.

Brewerton has also secured another member to his backroom staff, with the former Rhyl Youth boss looking to build on a very encouraging first campaign at the club that resulted in a ninth-place finish.

He said: “After a positive first season at the club we knew that we had a lot of work we wanted to do off the field.

“One thing that we wanted to do was to restructure the reserves set up and enter them into the Welsh Alliance League Reserve league, we’ve been busy setting that up and appointed a new management team for that which we will be officially announcing soon.

“We’ve also added another coach to work alongside myself and Jamie Roberts in the first team, we’ve had permission and funded plans for our first stand at the club, and we are hopeful the new 100-seater stand will be in place by October or November.”

Brewerton also confirmed that the “majority of last season’s squad have decided to stay on at the club for the upcoming campaign, with the management team in the process of speaking to a number of potential new faces to boost the squad further.

“We are currently speaking to few individuals, but it is a very competitive time of the season where all the teams around us are trying to attract new players,” added Brewerton.
