NEW Conwy Borough manager Darren Moss is looking forward to the challenge of leading the club's push towards promotion to the Welsh Premier League.
Moss replaces Chris Herbert, who stepped down yesterday.
The new chief said: "Firstly, I would like to thank Conwy Borough FC for the opportunity to be given a chance to take the football club forward.
"I would also like to thank Chris for doing a fantastic job here and wish him all the best in the future."
"It's a fantastic club with great potential and myself and Aden are really looking forward to the challenge.
"It has come at a great time for myself, as becoming a manager and coach is my future and having been in charge of Nantwich Town towards the end of last season I am very keen to learn more."
"Bringing in Aden as assistant I believe is a massive plus for myself as well as Conwy, his experience at this level and above is second to none.
"One thing we are looking to do is bring youth to the side and have a look at our local youth policy as this can only benefit the football club in the long run."
"Aden is very keen on this opportunity and I know we will work hard to build success."
Moss, 32-years-old, took over as caretaker manager at Evostik Premier outfit, Nantwich Town, towards the end of last season at a tough time for the Dabbers where he arrested a run of 11 straight defeats, guiding the team to four wins, four losses and a draw and banishing any relegation fears.
Dabbers chairman Jon Gold credited Moss with 'revitalising' Nantwich Town during his spell as caretaker manager.
Gold was quoted as saying: "He has revitalised the club, players and supporters when we needed it most....I am certain that he will go on to become an excellent manager in the future."
Moss surprisingly lost out on the Nantwich job on a permanent basis before joining Conwy Borough this season where he has been a regular in the side before stepping up into the managerial hot-seat.
As a player, Wrexham-based Moss started his career as a trainee at Chester and went on to make 62 appearances for the club in the football league.
In June 2001, Moss joined Shrewsbury Town on a free transfer, making his début in August 2001 in Town's 3-1 loss against Hartlepool United. He was a key member of the side which won promotion back to the Football League in the 2003-04 season.
A notable moment for Moss was scoring the winning penalty in the Conference playoff semi-final against Barnet.
During his time at Shrewsbury, Moss made 6 appearances for Wales at Under 21 level.
In March 2005, his performances earned him a move to Dario Gradi's Crewe Alexandra, who bought him for £170,000. He made his début in Crewe's 4-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
In May 2007, Moss re-joined Shrewsbury Town on a free transfer. He made 31 league appearances in 2007-08, scoring twice.
Both goals came in local derbies, against his former club Chester and Wrexham. On 29 June 2009, he signed a two-year deal with Morecambe but left in October 2010 after 18 appearances.
In January 2011, Moss joined Welsh Premier League club Bangor City under Nev Powell. He made eight appearances for the club, helping them lift the WPL title, before leaving in the summer and moving onto Nantwich.
Moss's new assistant, Aden Shannon, 33, has been a revelation in attack since joining the club this season with 14 goals in all competitions so far.
The former Welshpool, Connahs Quay and Porthmadog goal-scorer boasts an impressive strike ratio with 39 goals in 59 starts in the Welsh Premier League, including a New Years Day hat-trick against a then unbeaten TNS.
He has previous managerial experience with Blacon Youth and also had a brief spell as manager at Buckley Town in the summer but resigned during a turbulent period for the Bucks before joining the Tangerines where he again makes the step up into management.
The new management team take the reins at Y Morfa for the first time on Saturday for the visit of Flint Town United (KO 2.30pm).
CONWY Borough FC can confirm that Chris Herbert has stepped down as first team manager at the club due to personal reasons.
The club have moved swiftly to appoint the experienced former Welsh Under 21 international Darren Moss as the new manager with the club's leading scorer Aden Shannon stepping up to become his assistant.
John Keegan is currently abroad with work commitments but has indicated his desire to remain with the club as part of the backroom staff.
The news comes just a few days after the club were narrowly beaten at home in the Welsh Cup by Welsh Premier Champions TNS.
Herbert took over the reins at Y Morfa last season and set about rebuilding the playing squad, eventually achieving a third place finish in the Huws Gray Alliance which culminated in winning the Huws Gray League Cup for the first time in the club's history.
This season the playing staff was transformed again as Herbert attracted a number of experienced players to the club. He departs with the side currently sitting in third place in the table.
Herbert said: "I would first of all like to thank the chairman, Geoff Cartwright, and vice-chairman, Darren Cartwright, for the opportunity to manage Conwy Borough Football Club.
"I have really enjoyed my last two seasons, and it has been successful when you look at where the club has progressed from.
"Finishing third and winning the League Cup was a huge stride in the right direction for the club. This year I am still confident the lads can go on and win the league.
"I would also like to thank John Keegan for all his time and help, he is the best coach I have worked with and is destined for big things in the game.
"I want to wish Mossy and Aden all the best in their new job, they will be backed by the players all the way. The club is now in a position to really push on so hopefully they can go and get the promotion they deserve."
Club chairman Geoff Cartwright is currently abroad with work commitments in Kuwait but has kept in contact with developments.
Vice-Chairman Darren Cartwright commented: "We are obviously saddened that Chris has been unable to continue in the role but totally understand and respect his reasons for stepping down. We thank him for what he has achieved during his tenure at the club and wish him all the best for the future."
"We are delighted that Darren Moss and Aden Shannon have both stepped forward to take on the job. Both have previous experience in management, know the league and the players inside out, and also where we can look to improve."
"As a club we felt it was important that we looked to maintain some continuity to build upon Chris's work and look to make a swift appointment. After meeting with Darren and Aden last night to discuss the position, it was an easy decision for us to take."
"We now look forward to this Saturdays home game against Flint Town United with Darren and Aden in charge and wish them all the best in the new role."

LLANDRINDOD WELLS 1
HOLYWELL TOWN 3
Welsh Cup third round
HOLYWELL travelled to Llandrindod for a Welsh Cup tie and knew it would be a close affair with their opponents also undefeated in their league.
Town opened the brightest of both teams and Sam Jones and Paul Williams both had efforts go over the bar in the early stages.
The Wellmen were putting together some good passing and a great move involving Sam Jones, Graeme Williams and Steve Thomas saw the latter fire over when in a good position.
Llandrindod's first real effort fell on 17 minutes as Richard Powell took a shot which Danny Stanton saved easily.
Matty Roberts made a great run down the left and he beat a couple of defenders before crossing over to Steve Thomas but his shot went wide.
Graham Boylan and Paul Williams were then both just a touch away from putting the ball into the net.
The Wellmen were getting frustrated as the referee rejects their penalty appeals on the half-hour mark as Boylan was knocked off the ball and Sam Jones received an elbow to the face.
But Town pressed on and a few minutes later, Sam Jones was running at goal and Llandrindod's captain Chris Murphy put in a great block to see the ball go out for a corner.
Steve Thomas then had a shot saved well by Mark Truelove in the Llandrindod goal before Sam Jones saw his dangerous free kick into the box flicked out to safety by the head of Daryl Nicholls.
The hosts, who were dangerous on the break, took the lead against the run of play on 37 minutes.
The ball fell kindly to Connor Bird and he broke clear of the Town defence and slotted past Stanton.
HALF-TIME: 1-0 LLANDRINDOD
The second half saw Town kick up the hill and the first real chance fell to Holywell. Graeme Williams broke from midfield and passed the ball across to Sam Jones, and his lay off saw Paul Williams shoot towards goal but it went over the bar.
Stanton saved well from Powell and the rebound fell to Jonny Williams but his effort went wide.
Boylan then had a long range shot dip just over the bar but he did not have to wait long to get on the scoresheet.
On 73 minutes, sub Sion Mchugh crossed towards Boylan and he controlled the ball before turning and shooting and finding the roof of the net.
Town were back in it and fancied their chances to get a winner.
But it was the hosts who had the next chance, Powell breaking clear and Stanton got the slightest of touches to his shot and the ball hit the post and went out for a corner.
That miss proved costly for Llandrindod as a few minutes later, the visitors took the lead.
Paul Williams broke clear and rode the challenge of a defender, before shooting at Truelove in the hosts' goal.
The keeper managed to block the shot but Williams was first to the rebound and he hit the back of the net to give Town a deserved lead.
Holywell still looked for more goals and Thomas broke clear but he was brought down by Shaun Nicholls to win the Wellmen a penalty.
Paul D Williams stepped up and made no mistake to fire the ball home past Truelove to start wild scenes of joy both on and off the pitch!
The referee blew for full time and the Wellmen celebrated a brilliant comeback and the reward for the victory is a trip to Welsh Premier side Newtown in the next round.
It was a brilliant performance by Holywell and our attitude and belief saw us through to the next round.

SOME surprise results in the Huws Gray Alliance this weekend.
Both title contenders Caernarfon Town and Conwy Borough lost at home - leaving runaway leaders Cefn Druids rubbing their hands with glee.
You can never write off Porthmadog, but I was a bit surprised to see them win so emphatically at an improving Rhydymwyn by four goals to nil.
Most of the HGA made me go Lumme! at the weekend.
