Programme Awards Winners 16/17

This is the 2nd year running that the Club has won the Huws Gray Alliance Best Programme Award having won the best programme award in the Welsh Alliance League for a number of years before we gained promotion to the Huws Gray Alliance.

Programme Editor Steve Roberts said, "I'm made up yet again to win this award, and makes all the hard work and effort worthwhile to produce the programme for every home game. With tight deadlines and a number of games in a short space of time, producing the programme sometimes involves working into the early hours but to win this award and to be recognised as the best programme in Wales makes it all worthwhile.

With 3 Huws Gray Alliance clubs in the Top 5, it shows that the standard of the Matchday Programmes in the Huws Gray Alliance is high and I'd like to congratulate all other clubs for their achievements in making the top 10, especially to Denbigh Town who finished in the runners up position.

I'm already planning the content of next season's programme and I will hopefully yet again produce a match winning programme we can be proud of. If you would like to contribute in writing an article or anything in the programme, please get in touch!."

The Club would like to thank B2 group for printing the matchday programme during the season and for their continued support as we wouldn't have won this award without their support in printing the programme. Also, a big thank you to Delyn Press for printing the programmes covers for the entire season.

The club do have back issues of Matchday Programmes for the past few season's and If you would like to purchase any of these award winning programmes, please contact a member of the Committee for details, or getting in touch with us via social media.

The Club pass on their well wishes to Phil Watkins, of Soccer Club Swap Shop, who's been critically ill recently. Get well soon Phil!
