Rugby: Benllech resign from North Wales league

Clwb Rygbi Benllech has pulled out of the WRU National League.

The club’s committee said it had been struggling to fulfill matches because of player injuries and other commitments.

The club’s results in Division Three North have now been expunged – their last game was a 39-0 defeat to Pwllheli 2nds earlier this month. They won just one of their twelve games played this season.

But the committee said it would review the club’s long term future in the coming weeks and organise a celebratory Memorial Match near the end of the current season.

In a statement on Tuesday, the club said: ”Although we retain a strong distinctive club spirit, due to injuries and external commitments, we have been struggling to field a full squad and fulfil fixtures.”

”As a club we are conscious of the welfare of our players and their future involvement in the great game of rugby.”

”Founded in 1975, Clwb Rygbi Benllech has a proud and gallant history and the seagull badge has played a huge part in the lives of many generations of Anglesey rugby players.”

”As a celebration of the club’s 43 seasons, we will be organising a Memorial Match towards the end of the season, which we hope will be attended by as many supporters and old friends as possible.”

The committee’s statement added: ”We know we are not alone in this situation and thank all involved in the club and the rugby community on Anglesey and across North Wales for their support.”
