Ioan Llewelyn has left his job as Bangor City assistant manager to join the New York Red Bulls youth academy.

The Welshman has departed homeland club Bangor to take an 18-month contract to be head of the MLS club’s youth development and although he admits it is slightly uncertain move, he is excited about a fresh change.

"It's a bit of a step into the unkown," Llewelyn told BBC Sport.

"But it's a chance to work with a professional club and a chance to get some more coaching experience.

"The potential is enormous.

"I'll be working with around 100 kids, boys and girls. I'll have two other qualified coaches with me and we'll be following a set coaching structure.

"It's all designed to ensure there's a natural progression from the academy into the Bulls first team."
