Saints Updates

After a slow start to the season the first team`s form has shown a marked improvement with only three defeats from the last nine games which leaves them mid table in the Welsh Alliance Division 1. Amongst their best results have been two 5-1 home wins against Pwllheli and Barmouth. The team`s achilles heal has been their away form although they did defeat near neighbours Llandyrnog United away from home. The team were also presented with the Fair Play Trophy for the best disciplinary record in the league during the 2016-17 season. The trophy seen in the picture was presented at the FAW Awards Evening in Cardiff which was attended by the Welsh Squad and their then manager Chris Coleman.
The Reserve`s have been through a period of transition following the resignation of their coach Peter Roberts and his assistant Lewis Jones. Peter has taken the vast majority of the present reserve team squad through all the stages of Junior football and through their first season in senior football. His dedication to the club, both on and off the field over the years has been immense and the Club owe him a great debt of gratitude. Thankfully he has agreed to remain a member of the Committee.
The role of Reserve team coach has been taken over by Dean Cotton with Adam Hiscox as his assistant. They got off to an excellent start with a 5-1 victory over Llandegfan in the North Wales Junior Cup. This was followed by a draw and a win in the league and a narrow defeat to second in the table Llandudno Amateurs.
The u15s have been performing well in the u16s league. They suffered a 3-1 defeat at home to Rhyl Aztecs u16. Recently they relished the opportunity to play a league fixture on the 3G pitch at the Leisure Centre with a 6-2 victory over Pentre Wolves. This was followed by a 3-3 draw against Prestatyn Celtic u16s.
The u 13s are getting stronger week by week. The effort from the lads is a credit to them. They have been unlucky with results of late but if they continue with their current effort it`s only a matter of time before they get the result their performance deserves.
The u11s are still struggling for numbers but they recently secured their first league win of the season with an 8-3 win over a strong Rhyl Commandos side.
The u10s are having a great season with an excellent team ethic. The effort from the lads both in training and on the pitch has been outstanding. This effort was rewarded with a great 3-1 win over Pentre recently.
Our newly established u8s have shown a fantastic improvement since the start of the season. Whilst they may not have scored many goals they are working as a team and are now getting to understand their roles in the various positions. Coach Roy Hilton would like to thank the players for the effort they put in to training and the matches. Roy also thanks the parents and family members for the support they have given him and the team.
Finally St Asaph City Football Club would like to thank everyone associated with City Times for allowing us the space to report on the Clubs` progress over the years. The City will be a far poorer place without the City Times.
