Daffodils 'Breese' to title


Gavin Grosvenor

LLANIDLOES Town will return to the Huws Gray Alliance after their class of 2013 secured the Spar Mid Wales League One championship last weekend.

Two goals from Jamie Breese and a Karl Seliaerts strike cancelled out an own goal from Richie Evans, as the Daffodils won the league and promotion with a 3-1 win at second placed Montgomery Town.

Few could argue with the Daffodils going up as champions, with Antony Griffiths’ side also taking on Waterloo Rovers in the final of the Spar Mid Wales League Cup on Saturday.

Assistant manager Peter Jones said: “It was a great way to win the league with a fantastic display in front of a large crowd. The boys have been superb all season and the title is no more than they deserve.

“There have been some outstanding contributions across the pitch this season and the lads can now look ahead to next season knowing that they have got the club back to where we belong.”

The club were relegated from the Alliance in 1998 and were then relegated from the Mid Wales League in 2008, before former Caersws defender Griffiths took the helm and arrested the decline.

Chairman Kevin Brown said: “We have an exciting squad and an ambitious manager. The club is very much on the up and our youth team and reserves have also had successful seasons.

“Our success is down to the hard work and loyalty of our hard-working committee and supporters who stood by the club during our lean years, who are now able to enjoy the club’s return.

“It has been a long time since we were last in the Alliance but our ground meets criteria and the players are ambitious to make the step up. We are looking forward to the future and hopefully we can end the season with the double.”
