A WELSH speaking football club from the region will be celebrating a prominent anniversary during the upcoming campaign.

Clwb Pêl-Droed Y Glannau, who were recently promoted to the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division following an impressive season, are about to embark on their 25th season after being formed by Alun Coetmor Jones and Moi Parry in 1994.

In recognition of this significant milestone, club officials arranged a special fixture between the current squad and those that have previously worn the green and red colours since their inception a quarter of a century ago.

It proved to be a fantastic occasion for all involved, with Y Glannau holding their presentation night following the special contest.

Manager Daniel Parsons was presented with a framed shirt by former captain Chris Evans in recognition of his service to the club, with the popular figure being involved within the set-up for its entirety.

Preparations are now gathering pace ahead of the St Asaph based side’s return to the Premier Division, which promises to be another hugely competitive affair with plenty of ambitious clubs aiming to follow in the footsteps of Llandudno Amateurs and secure the crown.

Runners-up Llandudno Athletic are expected to be among the front-runners once again, with Llansannan also poised to make a bold bid for promotion under the guidance of new manager Tom Lewis.

Rhuddlan Town are another to take seriously following a host of impressive signings ahead of their return to the surface at Pengwern College, and all-conquering Division One champions Llanelwy Athletic go in search of back-to-back titles and have yet to lose a competitive league fixture since forming last summer.
