Hadland decides to call it a day

Colwyn Bay are holding will hold an emergency board meeting this week as the Seagulls set about replacing manager Phill Hadland.

Seagulls officials will meet at Llanelian Road on Tuesday ahead of the club's next outing at Kendal Town on Saturday after Hadland, pictured, stood down on Sunday following the club's 2-1 defeat at home to Droylsden in EVO-STIK League North on Saturday.

Appointed last December after stepping up from his previous role as assistant manager to Paul Moore, the 37-year-old played on the wing for a number of Football League clubs including Reading, Rochdale and Leyton Orient.

The Seagulls paid tribute to Hadland in a statement regretting his exit after 11 months at the helm.

"The board will meet in the next 48 hours to discuss the situation and have released the following statement. It was with some regret that the board of birectors accepted the resignation of Colwyn Bay manager Phill Hadland. A run of indifferent results had influenced his decision and which the board reluctantly accepted.

"This was entirely Phill’s decision to call it a day and in no way influenced by the club whatsoever. We would like to put on record our sincere thanks to Phill for his commitment to the club since taking over from Paul Moore last season. We wish him well for the future."
