CEFN Druids boss Andy Turner has promised to remain positive as he prepares for his first match as permanent manager.

Earlier this week, Cefn Druids confirmed the permanent appointment of caretaker manager Turner.

He has been in temporary charge at The Rock since the departure of pervious boss Niall McGuinness, but he will now remain in control, and will look to continue developing the squad and improving performances on the pitch.

Druids will target a first Cymru Premier League win of the season as they play host to Huw Griffiths' Caernarfon Town this evening.

Turner said: “Those that know me, know I am a positive person and an eternal optimist, and we go into the rest of the season with a siege mentality and give everything!”

Since taking over at The Rock, Turner has overseen a lift in the squad as well as the development of the academy players coming through the ranks.

“I am really pleased," said Druids' chairman Des Williams.

"I had a conversation with Andy a few months ago and he took on the role as a caretaker but the difference in approach and professionalism is there for all to see and so I offered him the opportunity to manage the club, which he’s accepted.

“Having stepped up under difficult circumstances, I am pleased with the way in which Andy has implemented an attractive style of play.

"It has been a difficult few months but I believe this signals the start of a new chapter at the club and that this is the best possible outcome for the fans, players and staff.

"Andy and his coaching team have stepped up to the mark and hopefully our form will continue to go from strength to strength under his leadership.”

Turner will continue to combine his first team duties with his full time role as head of coaching.

His coaching team of Gareth Flitcroft, Luke Bailey, Levi Challoner and Sue Jones will take most of the day to day first team detail.
