Following last night’s AGM, Newtown AFC is delighted to announce the appointment of local
businessman Nick Evans as the new Chairman, following the departure of Howard Ellis. This change in leadership marks an exciting chapter for the club, as it aims to build on its past successes and propel itself towards an even brighter future.

Ellis completes 5 years as Chairman and has steered the club through a challenging time with the recent Covid-19. Despite this, the club has excelled on the pitch winning back-to-back Europa Conference appearances, with the club also finishing a highly credible 3rd place in 2021. The club has also recently achieved Category A status for its junior academy.

As Chairman, Evans will be responsible for overseeing the club’s operations, setting its strategic direction, and ensuring the fulfilment of its mission to foster excellence both on and off the pitch. His commitment to promoting a positive and inclusive culture within the club will undoubtedly inspire players, staff, and fans alike.

“I am honoured to take on the role of Chairman at Newtown AFC,” said Nick Evans. “This club has a rich history and a dedicated and growing fan base, and I am excited about the opportunity to contribute to its continued success. I firmly believe that by working together with the community and local stakeholders, we can achieve great things and further cement Newtown AFC’s position in tier 1 of Welsh football.”

Nick Evans joins Newtown AFC at a time of immense potential. With recent advancements in infrastructure and academy development, coupled with a passionate community of supporters, the club is poised to make significant strides towards its long-term vision. Under Evans’ leadership, Newtown AFC will aim to strengthen its position within the league, enhance its commercial partnerships, and continue to be an integral part of the local community.

The outgoing Chairman, Howard Ellis, expressed his confidence in Nick Evans’ ability to lead the club to new heights. “It has been a privilege to serve as Chairman of Newtown AFC,” said Ellis. “I have no doubt that Nick’s expertise and dedication will drive the club towards great achievements. I wish him all the best in his new role and look forward to seeing Newtown AFC flourish under his guidance.”

Newtown AFC welcomes Nick Evans as its new Chairman and extends its gratitude to Howard Ellis for his invaluable contributions to the club over the years. The entire organisation eagerly anticipates the next chapter in its journey and is committed to delivering on the promise of excellence, both on and off the field.
