CRAIG HARRISON: ALL SET FOR A NEW ERA AT CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS
- Former Welsh Premier League Manager of the Year relishing new challenge at champions
- Takes a wealth of experience in Wales into a renewed quest for more silverware
- Has battled back from heartbreaking end to his playing career to shine as a coach
CRAIG HARRISON will tomorrow (Saturday October 2) kick off a new era in charge of Welsh champions Connah's Quay Nomads with a tough trip to Haverfordwest.
The 43-year-old Sport Careers Agency client was this week unveiled as the new Nomads Head Coach following the departure of predecessor Andy Morrison.
Former Middlesbrough, Preston North End and Crystal Palace midfielder Harrison first joined The Nomads back in October 2018.
He has been a key part of the club's back-to-back Cymru Premier titles and now takes charge of the team in his own right.
Harrison does so with a superb record in the Welsh game to fall back on.
He was 2017's Welsh Premier League Manager of the Year, an award that marked his work at The New Saints where he won six consecutive Welsh Premier League titles along with three Welsh Cups and three Welsh League Cups.
Craig also masterminded TNS' World Record for the longest winning streak in top-flight football.
Harrison, whose own playing days were cut short by a horrific double leg break that forced him into early retirement, has bravely rebuilt his life in football as a coach.
Now he's set for the next chapter at the Nomads and he said: "I am very excited to take on this new challenge.
"I'm looking forward to working in a different capacity at the club alongside some very good people, both on and off the pitch."
