FORMER Wales international Andy Legg has been appointed as the new manager of Bangor City following the sacking of Neville Powell last week.
Powell was dismissed after nine years with the Citizens, following a takeover of the club by a Chester-based consortium.
They wanted their own man and have opted to go with Legg, 50, who has previously managed Hucknall Town and Llanelli.
Neath-born Legg made more than 700 appearances in a 17-year Football League career, turning out for the likes of Swansea City, Cardiff City, Birmingham City and Peterborough United.
He had an eight-month spell in charge of Hucknall in 2007, leaving in September after six consecutive defeats at the start of the 2007-08 Conference North season.
Legg moved back to Wales and played for Llanelli before taking over as manager following Peter Nicholas’ departure in April 2009.
He led the club to Welsh Cup success in 2011, beating his new club Bangor in the final, before enjoying success in European competition.
His reign was ended in April 2013 after the club were wound-up at the High Court but he has returned to management, and the Welsh Premier League, with Bangor.
“For me, Bangor City FC is the biggest club in the Welsh Premier League and enjoys the best support,” said Legg.
“There was only one team that would bring me back to the WPL and that’s Bangor City. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
