Football: Staff vs Leavers' clash set for Colwyn Bay FC this week

Staff and Sixth Formers at Rydal Penrhos will be battling it out for bragging rights at a highly anticipated football match this week.

This year’s Staff versus Leavers’ contest will take place at the Four Crosses Construction Arena on Friday, May 17, which is the home of Tier 2 North side Colwyn Bay (7pm).

Last year’s showcase went the way of the staff team, with goals from Adam Aslam-Baskefield, Dean Jones, Craig Stock and Peter Lavery on target in their comfortable 4-1 win.

This was the second straight year that the staff squad had prevailed in the clash, with the experienced players gaining a resounding 6-1 victory over the 2017 leavers’ after a standout attacking display.

Colwyn Bay FC are set to embark on a return to the Welsh domestic system after a 35-year stay within the English structure.

Director of Football Neil Coverley is also the father of Year 6 pupil Zack, and refreshments will be available for those in attendance.

Mr Jones, said: “The Staff vs Leavers’ game is always a cause of great excitement, and it promises to be another fantastic occasion once again with plenty of pride at stake.

“I would like to offer my thanks to Colwyn Bay FC and Neil for allowing us to use their fantastic surface at the Four Crosses Construction Arena, which is one of the best pitches you will find anywhere in the region.”
