Denbigh Town Football Club are thrilled to announce that Brett Jones has been appointed assistant manager to Dewi Llion.
Jones, 36, makes the step up from his previous role as a coach for the side and will now operate directly as manager Dewi Llion’s assistant. The move comes following Kristian Pierce’s decision to step down to focus on returning to the pitch.
“I’m really pleased to make the step up to assistant manager” said Jones.
“The club is close to my heart after being involved here on and off for two decades, so taking the role on is a huge honour.
“I’ve had a really good relationship with Dewi since our time together at Bala Town and feel we’ve worked really well since my return in 2020.
“Now it's time to continue push on and finish as high as possible this season".
Manager Dewi Llion was delighted to see Jones step up adding “Brett is someone I’ve known for a long time, worked with closely, and trust implicitly.
“He’s a superb coach and now feels like the perfect time for him to step up in the role and work with me on other aspects of management.
“Brett’s experience in Welsh football and elsewhere at an elite level is key and he’s already had an impact on the team since returning, particularly last season”.
Having come through the ranks at Central Park he made his first senior appearances as a player at 16 in 2004 for the Reserves, and was handed his debut for the First Team by then-manager Tim Dyer later that season.
After a number of years playing at Denbigh, Jones opted to begin coaching and had spells within the academy at Rhyl followed by Bala Town, where he first linked up with Dewi Llion.
Following three years at Maes Tegid Jones opted to return to Central Park as a First Team Coach for the 2014/15 campaign. However, his time at Town would be short having moved to Everton to coach their Women’s Under 21s.
In the summer of 2020 he left Merseyside and once against linked up at Central Park to join Dewi’s staff as a coach.
During his time so far Jones has won a league and cup double in 2022/23 and been an integral part of the management team, where he has excelled in training and pre-match activation.
