Elfed Morris

It is with great sadness to announce that ex Colwyn Bay player, manager and groundsman Elfed Morris passed away today.

Elfed was born in the town and had a Football League career most famously with Chester, but also played for Wrexham, Halifax Town, Caernarfon Town, Llandudno and Bethesda. Elfed was the nephew of former Wales and Burnley player Billy Morris, who later manager Wrexham.


He was a familiar and much loved face at the club, and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

The club have confirmed that a minute’s applause will be held before the FA Trophy tie against Altrincham on Saturday, 16 November at Llanelian Road.

  1. Football was Elfed, I know he gave back to it what he could and he will be missed by many, thanks for the memories Uncle x x

  2. I saw Elfed play for Chester when i was a schoolboy there, he played alongside Gary Talbot and many others,he was a bit of a boyhood hero. i later met Elfed when i moved back to the bay he was always very approachable and a loyal and tireless servant for Colwyn Bay F.C. I sincerely hope the club comes up with a lasting tribute to this brilliant man such as perhaps naming a stand after him.

  3. Elfed started up an under 13s Min y Don team who played at the local park. Thanks to him, I have some priceless memories of what could easily have been a lost youth. Communities like Old Colwyn need more people like Elfed Morris; men who don’t see young kids as a problem, but as a possibility; men who have the intelligence, initiative and generosity to make things happen with their own time, effort and money. This was Elfed. This is what we have lost today, but I can assure you, the memories he made will stay inside me all my life. Thanks Elfed.
