Neville Powell (born 2 September 1963) is a Welsh football manager and former professional player who currently manages Welsh Premier League side Aberystwyth Town


Powell began his playing career at Tranmere Rovers, making a goalscoring debut for the club at the age of 17 on 1 March 1981 in a match against Torquay United.[1] He left the club in 1984 having made 86 appearances for the Prenton Park club, scoring four goals.[2] He went on to spend eight years with Bangor City, playing for the club in the first season of the Welsh Premier League.

In 1993, he took over as player-manager of Connah's Quay Nomads, where his playing career came to an end following a broken leg sustained during a game against Llansantffraid on the opening day of the 1996–97 season.[1] After 14 years in charge at Connah's Quay, Powell took over as manager of Bangor City in 2007, replacing Steve Bleasdale.[3]

Bangor under Neville Powell have been very successful, beating FC Honka in the Europa League 3–2 on aggregate in July 2010, also winning the Welsh Cup for three consecutive years (2008–2010) and winning the Welsh Premier League in the 2010–2011 season after starting the season with 15 consecutive wins, a run which was acknowledged across Europe.

On 25 July 2016 news broke that Neville Powell had been "relieved of his duties", according to a statement released by the club.

On 11 July 2017, Powell was named as manager of Aberystwyth Town.[4]
