We have an announcement to make, and a very huge reason to CELEBRATE! It is official that Clwb Hoci Ardudwy & Arfon are the CHAMPIONS of North Wales League Division 2 and will be promoted to DIVISION 1 next season in the North Wales League!!
Our stats for this season in Division 2, has been beyond amazing! Out of 13 games so far, with only one more game to go next week, we’ve won 11, drawn 2 and lost NONE! Throughout the league we have remained UNDEFEATED!
Also, out of the top 20 players in this division, the first 7 players of the League Top Scorers are all Ardudwy & Arfon members! Our Captain, Jacqueline Smith, who has proven to be a very worthy Captain, has been a great role model this season to all of us, with her desirable skill and passion towards the game, and is 1st in the League Top Scorers, with the total of 15 goals! Followed by Heledd Rowlands (2nd), Anna Hume (3rd), joint 4th place: Gwenno Davies & Felicity Smith, Bryony Vanderburg (5th) and Clare Barwood (6th).
But our players up front aren’t the only ones who have been working their socks off to secure these wins – due to the strength and dedication of our defence, we have only conceded 5 goals in 13 games!
It’s safe to say the club has worked so hard this season to get to where we are today, and we couldn’t have done it without the dedication the players has put into every single game. I’m sure I speak on behalf of us all when I say it’s a privilege to put on that green shirt week after week, and not only to play alongside such talented and skilful players, but players we have now grown to see as our family. Extremely proud of all of you!
Also a shout out to our supporters, who have shown their support throughout the league, either on Facebook and Twitter and/or at the sidelines – THANK YOU.
But mainly, the biggest thank you goes to our Manager, Nicci Ashcroft. Her fun and bubbly personality throughout the season has given the club such a positive boost. Her wise words shouted from the sideline, the mini speeches given before the game, half-time and after the game, even during training, has been so supportive and motivational, she has given 100% to all the girls and the club, and it’s definitely paid off.
It has always been a dream for the club to reach Division 1, and we’ve proven that even the smallest of teams can achieve greatness. So it’s onwards and upwards from here girls – I guess all there’s left to say is, Division 1, are you ready for the Green Army?….!
