COLWYN BAY FC received a major boost at the Football Conference AGM in Newport last weekend when they picked up a £10,000 prize after being named the North division’s Community Club of the Year.
The Seagulls, who have set up a number of community based activities over the past 12 months, beat off competition from two other nominated north division clubs to take the award, with Bath City winning the Conference South award, while Alfreton Town were the winning club in the Premier Division.
Seagulls director Andrew Keep, who lives in Colwyn Bay and is responsible for community activities, commented: “Everybody at the club is thrilled. It was quite a coup for a club like Colwyn Bay to win an award like this in a national league and in front of representatives from clubs all over the country. It is reward for all the hard work that has been put in over the last year.”
