Port Talbot Town Football Club have announced that caretaker manager Scott Young has been appointed as first-team manager on a permanent basis.

Young, 36, was initially appointed on an interim basis having served as first-team coach under former manager Mark Jones and took charge in Saturday’s league victory over Prestatyn Town.

The former Cardiff City defender moved to Port Talbot in a coaching capacity at the start of the season following a successful managerial spell with Welsh League side AFC Porth.

Chairman Andrew Edwards said: “We’re delighted to be appointing Scott as our new manager and have every confidence in his ability given his professional background.”

The club have also confirmed that Marc Cahill and Vince Lewis will remain as first-team coaches, whilst Nigel Williams will continue as goalkeeping coach.

During his playing career Young made 275 appearances for Cardiff and was also a Welsh Under-21 international.

Young will be aiming to record his second victory as Town manager in Saturday’s Welsh Cup tie at Airbus UK Broughton.
