Chris Herbert has joined the Nomads coaching staff
gap Connah's Quay are pleased to announce that Chris Herbert has returned to Deeside Stadium as part of the first team coaching staff.
Chris recently departed his role as First Team Manager at Conwy Borough, having guided them to a third place finish in the 2012/13 season and a Huws Gray Cup victory beating Caersws 4-3 on penalties following a 0-0 draw.
Chris played 39 times for The Nomads between 2007 and 2010 scoring 14 goals in all competitions, and has also played for Airbus and Welshpool, along with spells at Vauxhall Motors and Chester City in the English pyramid.
Director of Football Mark McGregor said; "As soon as Chris left Conwy, I felt it was just what the club needed - he joins the club at the right time and he boosts our great back room team."
Speaking on his return to Deeside Stadium, Chris commented, saying; "I am delighted to be back at The Nomads. Everyone knows what I think of the club and as soon as Mark gave me the opportunity to come in, it was one I couldn't turn down.
Everyone knows what I think of the club and as soon as Mark gave me the opportunity to come in, it was one I couldn't turn down.
"Mark is a good friend of mine and if I can help him and the club get back to winning ways, then I am happy to help.
"As an ex-player, I know the club and most of the current players inside out - the hard work starts straight away with our aim still to get into the Top 6. If we don't achieve that then 7th spot is a bare minimum.
"We've got 3 or 4 quality additions lined up to add some competition to the squad and we are more than capable of reaching the Europa League playoffs again. Although the last eight results have not gone according to plan, I am more than confident that we can turn it around and quickly move back up the table."
