Former clubs

I started playing 20 years ago for my local village team Rhostyllen then quickly moved on to play for Lex X1 in the Cymru Alliance the rest is history

Moved on to Bala town where after a couple of seasons we won the Cymru alliance and promotion into the welsh premier league 

Then moved to Cefn Druids for a few seasons

Then onto Denbigh town

Then Porthmadog for a brief spell

Then Llanuchllyn for a season after two knee operations

Biggest footballing occasions

Playing in Europe (Druids)

Winning Cymru Alliance (Bala Town)

Word cup final (Denbigh) lost TNS

Welsh cup final (Druids) lost TNS

Welsh alliance League winner and cup (Denbigh TOWN)

Title favourites for next season

Porthmadog & Denbigh Town will be up there for sure!!, but also a couple of underdogs!!  by underdogs I mean clubs that do not have any sort of budgets and lads must pay to play

New signings

We have brought in some young blood but all with big potential

Ryan Dacey & Will Nevitt (TNS u19s), Forward Cameron Thomas (Druids academy) forward Aled Powell (FC Queens Park) winger, Sean Dodd (FC Queens Park) midfield and veteran defender Stevie Evans (TNS) who needs no introduction

Ambitions for the season?

Obviously, it is a bit of the unknown with the new structure with teams we know very little about!! so I would say anything better than last season’s rock bottom finish would be a success. On a serious note I would say I would like to think we could break into the top 5

My top 5 strongest teams in no order would be

Llanuchllyn. Porthmadog, Denbigh Town, Llandudno Albion and Mold Alex

Grounds I am looking forward to visiting: Porthmadog. Denbigh Town. My top four players in the league next season, Mike Sharples. (Denbigh Town), Kristian Pearce (Denbigh town), Rhys Nash (Mold Alex) and Tom Watkin Jones (Llanuchllyn)

Thoughts on the restructure of the pyramid

As a club we are really looking forward to getting started with the new league structure. It makes everything a lot more professional and we have made lots of improvements throughout our club most notably at our ground where we have spent thousands of pounds getting it ready to compete at this level. The overall standard of the league will be much better in this format.

Ambitions for the season

Obviously, it is a bit of the unknown with the new structure with teams we know extraordinarily little about!! so I would say anything better than last season’s rock bottom finish would be a success 😂

On a serious note I would say I would like to think we could break into the top 5

We cannot wait to get going again.

The initial lockdown was tough on the lads with all football stopped altogether. To be fair to the lads they were doing their own fitness work during this period. We then got back to training in small groups initially before having larger group a little later. The loads enthusiasm and effort has been fantastic in this difficult time for everyone. We have had a couple of inter team games under the new protocols and just started winter training before the firebreak. Which has obviously put everything on hold again. Hoping we can get back sooner rather than later and get to back playing games on a Saturday afternoon which everyone is desperate to do when it’s safe to do so

Anything else you would like to add

We are looking forward to welcoming all teams, supporters, league officials to Rhostyllen FC and wish everybody a successful season.
