IT'S the moment most football lovers dream of - scoring a goal for the club that means the most to them. And for football-mad Rhys Lane, it seems to have been worth a twenty year wait.

The 37-year-old, who has been the manager of Llandudno Athletic for the last five seasons, scored for Llandudno-based The Alex FC in their 10-3 win over Sun Inn in the Rhyl & District Sunday League.

Having helped the club form over the summer, Rhys decided to dust his boots off for the first time in twelve years, originally starting off in goal.

"I've been involved since with Alex FC since week one and started off in goal and just helping the manager out in general," Rhys said.

"Sunday was only the second time I've played outfield and it was great. I've always enjoyed my football and of course, nothing quite beats the feeling of scoring. Hopefully, I won't have to wait another twenty years before I score again!"

The Alex are enjoying a great debut season, currently sitting in second place in the Rhyl & District Sunday League table. The club has also reached the final of the Matty Perez Memorial Cup, where they will face The Royal Oak on April 28.

Rhys, who says he's enjoyed many highlights during his time as Llandudno Athletic manager, from reaching a cup final to earning promotion to the Vale of Clwyd & Conwy Premier Division, hopes that The Alex can also enjoy some success in the near future.

"Winning some trophies with both sides this season would be amazing," he said.

"With a combined three finals to look forward to and The Alex being in another semi final, I'm hoping we can secure the first pieces of silverware for both Athletic and The Alex this season."
