RHUDDLAN Town received more welcome news ahead of the new season as two more of Wayne Hughes’ squad committed to the club.

The Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division champions may have lost the services of influential duo Jay Whitehouse and Mathew Beach to newly formed CPD Y Rhyl 1879, but Hughes has been working hard to get the majority of his title-winning squad to resist temptation from elsewhere and stay on.

His latest re-signing was Rhys Machin, a talented young player who developed significantly in a senior setting last time out.

Machin made his presence felt gradually as the campaign progressed, which culminated in a sensational display in their pivotal showdown against Abergele at a crucial period of the season.

He also netted his first senior goal and assist last term, and Town have high hopes he can build on this positive momentum at a higher standard.

Another player that should be in for a big season is Steven Flanagan, who has also agreed to re-commit for next season as the club looks to establish itself as a forced to be reckoned with in Tier 4.

The player made a huge impression after joining Town from Kinmel Bay, with his outstanding performances against Llansannan and Llanfairfechan Town catching the eye.

Rhuddlan recently began training once again after formally receiving clearance from the Football Association of Wales, and the club are now the proud owners of their title-winning medals after a memorable campaign for all involved.
