COLWYN Bay FC’s ambitious plans to improve their youth structure have received an incredibly positive response from the community.

The Seagulls’ received a record amount of interest in their junior section in recent week, with 230 aspiring players signing up to a wide range of different age brackets.

This is set to be an integral part of the club’s development in the future, with Craig Hogg’s side harbouring serious ambitions to reach the JD Cymru Premier at the second time of asking next season.

In addition to the junior section, the club also boasts a thriving Academy that could see players progress into the senior set-up in the coming years.

They are also planning to introduce a girls’ junior section in the coming months, with the implementation of a senior women’s side also in the pipeline in the not-too-distant future.

A club spokesman, said: “Welcome to all players, parents and committee members from the junior section. One Team, one community.”

This is the latest positive step taken by the club since their return to the Welsh pyramid system last summer following a three-decade stint within the English league structure.

Their decision proved to be an inspired one, with attendances soaring at the Four Crosses Arena and the Seagulls’ becoming a valuable community asset that has not been seen within the set-up for a number of years.
