Bethesda Athletic Football Club Rebuilding “From The Youth Team Up”

Bethesda Athletic, a village football club that was formed back in 1946, is bouncing back after falling on hard times by attracting up to 100 youngsters to its regular junior training sessions.

The club were twice Welsh Alliance champions, with its roots going back to the slate quarries surrounding the village. Welsh International Malcolm Allen once played for the club, as did Wrexham and Leeds United centre forward Don Weston, former Wales assistant manager Osian Roberts, Chester winger Elfed Morris and Wrexham defender Ally McGowan.

Stephen Jones, junior section chairman and former Bethesda midfielder, said: “The village has a rich football history going back 100 years and was originally Penrhyn Quarries, and we’re rebuilding the club from the youth team up.

“We were Welsh Alliance champions two years running from 2007 to 2009 and won the North Wales Coast Cup in 2009 and we hosted Welsh Under-19 and Under-17s internationals against Norway and Scotland back in those days.”

Lock Stock Self Storage has provided two shipping containers for the club to house its equipment for its weekly training sessions, with site manager Tony Jones praising Bethesda for its strong community spirit.

He said: “It’s great to see them getting back on their feet and with the kind of leadership and enthusiasm that Stephen brings, I’m sure that when football resumes properly they will be well on their way to being a force again.”

Lock Stock itself was founded in Denbigh in 1999, now boasting more than 3,000 storage units at 22 storage parks across North Wales and the border counties, froM Caernarfon and Holyhead in the west, along the North Wales coast at Bangor, Llandudno Junction and Rhyl, and inland at Denbigh, Flint, Mold, Saltney, Wrexham, Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Welshpool.
