LLANDUDNO Albion have had another tremendous season as they continue to establish themselves a force to be reckoned with.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side have enjoyed a surge up the Welsh pyramid since their inception, and the current campaign has also been littered with memorable highlights.

While circumstances might dictate that club may not be able to content the FAW Trophy final due to the coronavirus pandemic, it should not take away from just was a magnificent achievement it was for Darren Jones’ men to make the showcase.

Their penalty shootout semi-final triumph over Holyhead Hotspur had all the traits that have been associated with the club in recent years. The tenacity, work ethic and technical quality was there for all to see and it would be a real shame if they are unable to participate in the biggest game in their history due to ongoing concerns surrounding Covid-19.

While Albion’s title challenge fell short after a period of inconsistency, there was still plenty to like about their chances going forward. The club has high hopes for the future and the management team have done a tremendous job in sourcing local players that fit into the team’s way of thinking.

Joel Lloyd has led by example in his role as skipper this season. The influential figure has been at his consistent best and has been one of the standout performers in the third tier.

Prolific striker Dave Maddock became the club’s record goalscorer earlier this season and continues to be a potent presence in the final third. He also defends exceptionally well from the front, which is something that does not show up on the stats sheet but is equally as important.

Pete Jones has had his struggles with injury during the season, but few would deny the quality he brings at the top of his game. His partnership with Maddock has been a driving force behind Albion’s success and this is something that should continue next term.

Experienced midfielder Joe Morgan provides a rare blend of composure on the ball and bite in the tackle. Ricky Jones’ qualities have also been prominent and he remains a pivotal part of what Albion are trying to achieve long-term.

The likes of Jack Atherton, Dan Roberts, Luke Smith and Dan Evans can also be proud of their respective contributions so far this term.

Hopefully the campaign will resume and end with some national silverware for the Albion. But regardless of what the future holds in the coming weeks, everyone associated with the club can look to the future with an enormous sense of encouragement.
