Welshpool Town have parted company with manager Luke Ogilvie, just five weeks after the former Llanymynech boss took charge.

And the Lilywhites have moved quickly by promoting the experienced playing duo of Chris Roberts and Neil Pryce to become joint managers.

In a statement released this morning club chairman Russell Cadwallader said: “Welshpool Town FC announces that we have parted company with manager Luke Ogilvie. First team affairs will be taken over with immediate effect by Chris Roberts and Neil Pryce.

“The club would like to thank Luke for his efforts and wish him well for the future.”

Ogilvie took over the reins following the resignation of Terry Ingram on September 9 and his departure probably means he becomes the shortest serving boss in the club’s history.

Chris Roberts has had managerial experience at Dyffryn Banw while Neil Pryce has had vast experience as a player with Waterloo, Montgomery and Welshpool this season.

“We’re aiming to bring a bit of stability back to the club after a turbulent few months,” said Chris.

“There’s a strong committee and excellent youth structure at the club from under-7’s through to the youth team which can only be good for Welshpool.

“We’ll aim to keep the local policy with a mix of Youth and experience and put Welshpool back on the footballing map.”

Ogilvie was missing on Saturday as Pool crashed to another home defeat with the club sitting bottom of the Spar Mid Wales League first division.
