LONG serving Caersws boss Micky Evans has turned down an invitation to manage the Welsh semi-professional side.
Manager of the Bluebirds throughout their 11 years in the Welsh Premier, Evans was offered the job by the FAW International Committee.
But he declined the post, which would involve the task of managing the Welsh side for next spring's four nations tournament in Scotland.
Evans notified the FAW's head of international affairs, Mark Evans, of his decision yesterday afternoon, having thought long and hard about the Welsh post.
"I was flattered to be offered the job and gave it a lot of consideration but I felt it was not for me," he said.
"I am fully involved with Caersws, a lot more than many other managers are with their clubs, and I felt I couldn't put in the time that managing the Welsh team would require.
"I've never been in the job for my own personal glory and my first priority is the success of Caersws."
With the tournament being staged in Scotland, it would also have difficult for Evans to take sufficient time off work.
His decision to turn down the job means that the Welsh FA will have to look elsewhere for the team manager.
The side had been managed for the last two seasons by former Aberystwyth Town and Carmarthen boss Tomi Morgan.
