Danny Barton steps down as Guilsfield manager as Leonard steps in

Huws Gray Alliance side Guilsfield have announced that manager Danny Barton has reluctantly resigned as the clubs manager.

Barton who originally joined the club as a player back in 2011, became the Assistant Manager at the club in 2015 before being appointed as manager a year later.

The 42 year-old who scored 174 goals in 335 appearances reason for resigning is due to work commitments.

A memorable result for Guilsfield over the course of the season was beating Welsh Premier League side Cardiff Metropolitan University back in January, despite going behind in that match. He also claimed another scalp over Welsh Premier League opposition, when his side beat Airbus UK in the Nathaniel MG Cup.

 During his tenure at The Community Ground, Barton has helped build the foundations for future success, blending youth and experience.

Replacing Danny Barton as manager is player Nathan Leonard, who has been given his first managerial job in football. 

Leonard has been at the club for over six years having joined from Ellesmere Rangers. 

Leonard was Player-Assistant Manager to Barton and it is an appointment that will help transition the departure of Barton.
