Former Merthyr Tydfil manager Lyn Jones - who oversaw the most famous victory in their history - has died.

The club, now known as Merthyr Town, confirmed the news on Friday.

Under Jones' guidance, Merthyr Tydfil's part-timers beat Italian Serie A side Atalanta 2-1 in the European Cup Winners' Cup first leg in 1987, in what was one of the biggest upsets in European club football history.

Jones also led Merthyr to a Welsh Cup win in 1987, their first for 36 years.
