PICTURED is Ruthin Town Youth FC’s U-13s’ Blues team, along with their managers Christian Bradford and Ian McKay (standing behind).

This squad was pulled together this season as a consequence of a very large number of boys wanting to play football in the U-13 age group year.

Christian Bradford had been an assistant manager with the previous years U-12s, so was an obvious candidate to manage the team, particularly as he’s almost completed his FAW C certificate course.

He has been joined by a very capable assistant in the shape of Ian McKay.

They have worked very hard to bring the squad up to speed and the team has already won two matches in the Wrexham and District Youth Football League.
