Saints Update

The Saints finished their Welsh Alliance campaign for the season with an away fixture at LLangefni, a team who were hoping to finish second in the League and gaining promotion to the Cymru Alliance. Despite losing the fixture in front of a vociferous home crowd the Saints thwarted Llangefni`s hopes of promotion. In general this has been a season of continuing to strengthen the squad and consolidating the team`s position in the Welsh Alliance League Division 1. Under the management of Aled Davies and his Assistant Carl Murray , who took on the roles mid season the team have grown in confidence to finish the season in mid table. Indeed had they replicated their home form in away matches they would have gained a top six position in the League. The team would like to thank everyone who has sponsored a match during the season and to the supporters who have braved the elements with nowhere to shelter from the rain.
The season ended in a positive note for the Youth team with 2-2 draws against Rhos Utd and Llysfaen followed by a great home win against Denbigh Albion. A narrow 3-1 defeat against the promoted Y Glannau capped off a great end to the season and left the team looking forward to next season in the Clwyd League. The team can be proud of the way they stuck to the task after a difficult start with a number of players now having joined the first team squad at the end of the season.
The U 16s reached the League Cup Final after a hard fought 2-0 win against a strong Llanefydd side. Two second half goals by Tyler Joyce secured the win. In the League the 16s continue to impress with wins at Prestatyn Celtic 4-1, Prestatyn Rangers 6-1 and 14-0 against Dyserth. With three league games left third place in the league is still on the cards. A great effort by the boys this season.
The U 14s set themselves up for a nail biting end to the season with a fantastic home win over Henllan. In what could prove to be a title deciding game the Lions lost 2-0 to a hard working Prestatyn Celtic team. Our opponents direct approach to the game took the team and coaches by surprise. Sadly the team`s philosophy of playing attractive football from back to front was not enough on the day.
