CORWEN Football Club’s talented Under 14’s squad have finally been able to get their hands on their league trophy after months of waiting.

The u14’s, managed by club stalwart Ian Evans, won their respective Wrexham Youth League division.

The Corwen boys shared the title with Borras Park Albion u14’s who also finished on 60 projected points following a curtailed 2019/20 season.

On Tuesday, the gifted young squad members were finally able to get their hands on the league trophy after having to wait months to celebrate due to the Coronavirus pandemic postponing all football.

PICTURE: The stage was set for the u14's title celebrations on Tuesday.

Players, coaching staff and parents gathered at the new club house at the junior ground previously damaged by flooding. Many hours of work from a dedicated team of volunteers has been put into the clubhouse to get the place looking great again and it will be officially opened in the coming weeks.

U14’s manager Ian Evans was appointed to the role of director of football at Corwen FC in June and has been with the club for 15 years in some capacity or another.

Speaking on his u14’s side’s title win, he said: “Congratulations to our u14s boys on picking up the league title for season 19/20.

“These lads were also in two cup semi finals before COVID-19 struck and we were gaining momentum week by week.

“So, seeing the season getting cut short was a huge disappointment to us all as it really was building up to be something special for these talented lads”.

The u14’s side at Corwen will now be making their way up to the u15’s squad when the 2020/21 season begins.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has yet to confirm a re-start date for leagues below the JD Cymru Premier (top flight).

However, full-contact training for teams of all ages and genders has been allowed to resume recently, meaning that Corwen’s young title-winners could take to the pitch once more.

Ian Evans added: “It was absolutely brilliant to be back out on the grass for the first time tonight (Tuesday) and seeing the lads really putting a proper shift in.

“Thanks to all the mums and dad and all the families for the continued support, we all really do appreciate it.

“Hopefully we can get some positive news in the coming weeks and get back into u15s league action soon. We are all really looking forward to building on whats already been achieved with this group”.
