LLANDUDNO Rugby Club were denied back-to-back titles due to the coronavirus pandemic following another exceptional season.

The Goats’ further enhanced their claim as one of the most dominant domestic sides in the entire country with an incredible series of results that saw them emphatically triumph against all-comers.

They were in ruthless mood on their quest to defend their Specsavers National League Division One North crown, winning all 15 of their fixtures in blistering fashion to end the season top of the standings once again and seven points clear of Ruthin with a game in hand.

Despite losing influential back Oscar Lennon through his involvement with RGC in the Indigo Group Premiership, Llandudno did not miss a beat thanks to their formidable squad that has real strength-in-depth.

Winger Rhys Henderson made the headlines with a host of superb performances that further boosted his reputation as a fearless finisher in space. It is clear he is destined to play at a higher level and might even be on the Gogs’ radar next term.

Arthur Lennon’s influence on the squad also grew significantly during the season after arriving from rivals Nant Conwy last term. He provided an injection of creativity and a trusted presence with the boot alongside talisman Ryan Pike.

Others to make a telling impact were Byron Davies, Morgan Owen, Lloyd Evans and Bobby Davies, but it has been a real team effort from the Goats’ this season.

This is something that was a trademark behind their overall rise to prominence over the last two years and should make them the team to beat once again next season.

It is a hugely ambitious set-up that is reaping the rewards of a strong youth system and recruitment strategy. There is a real chemistry within the squad and when they are at the top of their game there are few sides in the country that can match them.

The future is incredibly bright at Llandudno Rugby Club. The team is riding on the crest of a wave currently and even though Covid-19 prevented them from the chance of another historic season, there is nothing to suggest this juggernaut is not going to continue in 2020/21.
