LLANSANNAN manager Tom Lewis has completed a gruelling challenge to raise funds for the club.

The second-year manager, who took over at the NWCFA Tier 4 (East) Premier Division side last summer, set himself a daunting trek from the club’s Llan Siro ground to the top of Mount Snowdon.

This was to raise funds for the club’s quest to meet the new tier regulations being implemented by the Football Association of Wales next season, and Lewis set out on his marathon on Saturday, July 25.

Lewis dug deep and managed to reach the Snowdon summit in six hours and 40 minutes after completing an eye-catching distance of 28.8 miles.

He was joined by members of Llansannan’s coaching staff and senior squad for the final stages of the challenge, which has received an exceptional amount of support from the North Wales footballing community.

After initially setting a target of £1,000, Lewis’ fundraising efforts now stand at £2,325. This will go a long way to improving all areas of the facility in the coming weeks, which has already received an outstanding transformation in their bid to push the club forward.

Lewis was part of the playing squad at Llansannan before taking over from Gari Lewis during pre-season, and he has enjoyed a hugely successful few months in the role.

His side were in contention for multiple honours before the FAW curtailed remaining fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic, but their promotion objective was realised following an exceptional effort from club officials and volunteers behind the scenes.
