LLandudno celebrates winning the SWALEC Division 2 North title.
Two years after being relegated from the SWALEC Division 1 North, Llandudno have bounced back clinching the SWALEC Division 2 North trophy.
The squad were presented with their trophy at the club's annual Welly Day - a Junior Rugby Tournament organised by the club - on Saturday 10th May 2014.
What a difference a year makes for the club who were last season struggling to make an impact and finding their feet after being relegated from North Wales' top division.
Since then with a new coaching staff and ethos, Llandudno RFC have won the league and reached the semi-final of the SWALEC Bowl before missing out on a place in the final at the Millennium Stadium to Clwb Rygbi Cymry Caerdydd. Llandudno RFC also beat Rhyl 32 - 7 to claim The Intermediate Cup.
Llandudno Head Coach, Jason Roberts said: "Winning the title today is a fantastic achievement - we are a team of young lads with an average age of 24, and it is the first proper season for this squad. I am really proud. The training has really made a difference - there is a great team spirit, with the lads wanting to train and that has shown on the pitch and in the year-end results. We have loads of standout players, and a great spread of 25 players who have scored tries.
"We are producing a lot of good players who have been taken by Rygbi Gogledd Cymru (RGC), the regional side. It is fantastic for the club to be part of that, but it means we are always filling those gaps. Looking at next season, I am confident if the lads train that we will be a team that performs very, very well, and can certainly aim for a top six finish - it is up to the boys!"
Llandudno Club Captain, Ian Williams added: "It is absolutely brilliant to win today - a great team effort. Everyone turned up to train, and the fantastic management and coaching has made a big difference. Rugby creates a great camaraderie, it brings everyone together, and we have a fantastic time both on and off the pitch. For next season, we will see what the competition brings, but we will be giving it 100%, so watch out!"
