Football: Leavers' and staff set to clash next month at Llandudno FC


Staff and pupils at Rydal Penrhos are set to square off next month in the annual Leavers’ match.

Pupils who are set to depart the school following their exams this summer will once again look to claim bragging rights over staff members, and this year’s clash will take place at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, the home of Dafabet Welsh Premier League outfit Llandudno on Friday, May 19.

The pupils come into the game in good form, having beaten Ellesmere College 2-1, but have endured a frustrating time due to postponements thanks to the adverse weather conditions.

Staff, who will consists of teachers and support staff, will be looking to avenge their narrow 5-4 defeat last year and boast a number of former league players, in addition to current WPL referee Mark Petch.

Teacher Darren Baker, said: “The annual Leavers’ versus Staff clash is always a hotly contested affair, with plenty of pride at stake for both sides.

“It is always played in a great spirit and the game gives our departing pupils a chance to get one over on the staff before they head off this summer.

“Supporters are welcome and we hope to see as many people there as possible to cheer on both sides.”

Anyone wishing to attend should note that kick-off is scheduled for 6pm and the postcode for the ground is LL30 1HH.
