Former Newtown manager Darren Ryan has been confirmed as Wolves' Under-18 coach on a permanent basis.
Ryan took over from Jerry Gill on an interim basis in March and after a successful end to the campaign when results took an upturn, Ryan has now got the job permanently.

Academy manager Gareth Prosser said of the appointment: "The recruitment process was very strong and in many respects it was a really nice problem to have.

“We have had to turn away some very good people and that is always difficult but we felt it was right to give Darren the opportunity, and ultimately in our eyes he is the best man for the job.

“We are all delighted that Darren now has this opportunity to show what he can do on a sustained basis.

“He did well in the position last year when the under-18s enjoyed an impressive spell of results and performances and, having had that good finish to the season, hopefully he can now drive it on and, with the support of the staff and players, keep that momentum going."

Ryan began life at the club with the under-12s as a part-time member of staff, working with Niall Ennis and Ryan Leak in that age group. He then progressed to the under-16s and has also worked with Scott Sellars' under-23s.

Prosser added: "To some extent it is like a player coming through the academy and progressing to the first team. Sometimes that can also happen with staff and that is evident by a number of staff who have impressed and made progress with the Academy whilst at the club.

“Darren now has that responsibility to continue the excellent traditions of bringing players through to the first team but that is a challenge he will relish.”
