Rhyl FC Managing Director, Mike Jones was delighted to secure this pre-season challenge for the Lilywhites, who will be looking to make an immediate return to the Welsh Premier League following their recent relegation.  Mike stated "securing high profile opposition such as West Bromwich Albion which is likely to interest supporters, would pay dividends for the promotion campaign we will be looking to launch for next season adding that the high profile pre-season games such as this would help the club's budget for the coming season."  In terms of preparations for next season, Mike paid tribute to the work of the volunteers behind the scenes at the Corbett Sports Stadium commenting that "since the last day of the season, the many volunteers, who are the real unsung heroes of Rhyl FC, have been busy improving the look and facilities at the ground. This work helps the ground to be maintained as a top class venue and this work helps in attracting high profile opposition to Rhyl for such matches."
