Barry Town United boss Gavin Chesterfield has signed a new two year contract with the club.
Chesterfield, who joined the club back in 2007, has managed the team for 450 games and will continue as manager in his fourteenth season with the team.
Over the past fourteen years, he has helped guide the club from Division Two all the way to the top flight Cymru Premier, and along with the club's Supporters Committee, helped ensure the club's survival after being withdrawn from league football back in 2013.
Since returning to the top flight in 2017, Barry finished in third place during the 2018-19 season, meaning they would qualify for European football for the first time since winning the top flight league in the 2002-03 season.
In a statement on the club's website, Chesterfield said:
“Firstly, I want to thank the board for their continued support and belief. I’m genuinely honoured to sign a new deal with the club. Going into my 14th season we have grown immeasurably together. The future looks exciting both on and off the field and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Fans of the club have given their reaction on social media.
