WRU names new Millennium Stadium manager

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has appointed former lieutenant colonel Mark Williams as its new Millennium Stadium manager.

The Royal Welsh soldier becomes manager of Wales’ Cardiff-based national stadium following the resignation of his predecessor former police chief superintendant Gerry Toms in June.

WRU chairman David Pickering said: "This is a great appointment for the WRU and I know Mark already has strong and relevant relationships with the relevant local authorities, the emergency services and with the Welsh government."

Williams added: "I am deeply honoured to be joining the WRU in such an important role. As a proud Welshman and rugby supporter, I understand the important place the stadium holds in the whole psyche and culture of Wales.”
