NANT Conwy begin their defence of the WRU National League Division One North crown with a home clash against Ruthin.

The all-conquering side enjoyed a remarkable season of success last term and will be hoping to hit the ground running on Saturday, September 1, by overcoming a Ruthin side that flattered to deceive for the majority of the campaign.

This will be followed by a tricky trip to a fancied Bala side the following weekend, and they also come up against Bro Ffestiniog, Llangefni and title rivals Pwllheli during their opening exchanges of what is sure to be another fascinating season.

They conclude their league campaign at home to newly promoted Denbigh on March 23, with Caernarfon and Shotton also scheduled for the crucial run-in.

Llandudno will also be looking to build on a positive 2017/18 season and begin with a visit to Mold, before taking on Shotton and the Cofis to round off their opening three fixtures.

The Goats travel to the champions on January 26 for a daunting test of their credentials, and they finish the season on their travels at Llangefni.

Recently relegated Colwyn Bay get their WRU National League Division Two campaign underway against a formidable Dolgellau outfit, who were also demoted from the top flight last term.

Their first home game will come the following weekend against Wrexham, and they finish next spring against Welshpool.
