Rhyl Ladies FC have taken an important step alongside their development journey by confirming the establishment of a Development Squad for the 2017/18 season.

Rhyl Ladies since moving to the Corbett Sports Stadium have grown in strength and with the ongoing success of the Rhyl Girls Squads, Manager Tom Jamieson confirmed that the establishment of the Development Squad for the coming season will bridge the gap to enable a clear path for young players to follow. The squad will allow players from the age of 16 to play in senior Women’s football in North Wales and allow them to make the transition to the adult competition. This will enable girls from the Under 8’s and onwards to progress through to the top tier of Welsh Ladies football, namely the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League whilst playing for Rhyl Ladies.

Rhyl Ladies FC Manager Tom Jamieson was also delighted to confirm the appointment of Rhyl Girls Coach, Rebekah Hansen to the role of Manager of the new development squad.

The appointment of Rebekah as Manager will lead to an interesting healthy competition in her house for top boss as her partner is Rhyl FC manager Niall McGuinness. Tom commented that “Niall has been a great supporter of the Rhyl Ladies and I’m sure that over the coming season the results of both sides will be the matter of interest and hopefully this rivalry will spur both teams on to success”

Upon confirmation of the new role Rebekah commented that "I'm looking forward to the task ahead. I feel it's a step in the right direction. The finishing touch for our pathway for the girls coming through from U16's. We're looking for players who want to play for each other each week and most importantly play for Rhyl Football Club. Any players interested please get in touch."

Rhyl Ladies are currently looking to build on their successful end to the season which saw them escape the relegation spots and with the addition of a third North Wales team to top flight Women’s football in Wales with Caernarfon Town Ladies, Tom is eagerly looking forward to the start of the new season. He commented that “pre-season training is now starting and we are looking to add depth to our squad to compliment the quality players already at the club. The addition of the Development Squad will provide depth to the club and provide a great opportunity for players to make the jump from local teams to the top league in Wales”
