RHUDDLAN Town have received two pieces of good news as they continue to form plans to build the club for the future.

Manager Wayne Hughes confirmed to The Journal that the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division side have managed to secure an agreement with Rhyl Leisure Centre to use their newly laid pitch for the entirety of next season.

They played at the Coronation Gardens site throughout the current campaign, with Hughes hopeful his side will be making a return to Pengwern College in 2020.

He said: “Rhyl Leisure Centre have just had a new pitch done and we have been offered the chance to hire it out for the season. It’s as good as any Welsh Alliance surface too.

“We are hoping to be back at Pengwern College before the new criteria kicks in as we are working on it now after the facility was recently taken over.”

Another massive boost for the club is the return of former skipper Mathew Beach, who has agreed to re-join the squad following a season at Llandudno Amateurs.

The popular figure played a leading role in their promotion from Division One last term, before contributing significant to Sandy Malone’s side sealing their second championship in succession pending an upcoming hearing.

Beach will wear the number six shirt vacated by Keiran Evans, who was forced to retire due to a serious leg injury and has since joined the Town coaching staff.

“I am absolutely buzzing to see Matty back playing and wearing a Rhuddlan Town shirt,” added Hughes.

“Our plan if to build the team up early so we can be ready for an exciting new season.”
