Roosters Retain Rimmer

Penrhyncoch are delighted to announce that Jack Rimmer will remain at the club for the 2023/24 Ardal Leagues season.

The pacey, versatile defender returned to Cae Baker in January following a two-and-a-half year spell with Aberystwyth Town. Since returning to the Roosters, Jack has only limited to two appearances playing the full 90 against Holyhead Hotspur, a game in which he scored, and Ruthin Town.

The upcoming season will be Jack’s fourth in red and black, and is a huge boost for the side as we look to return to the Cymru North at the first time of asking.

‘I’m really excited to get back playing again.” Jack told the club’s media. ”Last year was a whirlwind for my partner and I, welcoming our boy Archie. I can’t wait to get back on the field, playing my best, enjoying my football again and, most importantly, winning games and maybe some silverware with Penrhyn!.”

Efekan departs to turn pro!

The club can confirm that Efekan Colak has left Cae Baker in order to sign a professional contract with a second division side in his homeland of Turkey.

Efekan joined the club from Aberystwyth Town in August 2022 after spending time with the under-19s at Park Avenue. The 19-year-old made his Roosters debut in a 2-0 loss to Buckley Town in the first round of the Nathaniel MG Cup and went on to make a further 17 appearances for the club.

Efekan has been presented a brilliant opportunity and we wish him all the best as he looks to make his break into professional football.

Pob lwc, Efe!

Post Transfer Window Squad Update

Following the conclusion on the 2023 January Transfer Window, the club wishes to provide a post-window squad update.

Early January saw the departures of midfielder Gwion Pugh-Jones and winger Steffan Gittins. After moving away for work, Gwion decided to join Ardal South East side Trethomas Bluebirds, who currently sit fourth place in the league.

Having moved to Chester for university, Steffan decided to join JD Cymru North rivals Gresford Athletic. They currently sit 12th in the league.

As announced today, Gavin Rowlands has departed the club and has joined Builth Wells in order to progress in his development.

Due to injuries, defender Tihomir Trifonov has decided to call time on his career. The Bulgarian centre-back joined the club from FC Sevlievo in the summer of 2021 and he went on to make 37 appearances for the club.

We would like to thank Gwion, Steffan, Gavin and Tihomir for their contributions during their time with the Roosters, and we wish them all the best for the future!

The 17-year-old now returns the Bulls in order to progress in his development.

We’d also like to thank Gavin’s dad, who ensured he could get to training and matches during his time with the Roosters.

The club would like to thank Gavin for his services, and we wish him all the best for the future!

Joy for the Roosters as Jack returns!

Penrhyncoch FC are delighted to announce the return of defender Jack Rimmer, who joins the club from Aberystwyth Town. He joins the club as Gari Lewis’ fourth signing of the winter window.

Known for his speed and his powerful strikes, Jack joins for his third spell with the Roosters, having originally joined on loan from the Seasiders in 2016. He later went on to sign permanently in January 2019, spending a further 18-months with Penrhyn. In his last season at Cae Baker, Jack made 20 appearances for the club.

It was then announed in June 2020 that Jack would return to Park Avenue. During his second spell, Jack made 74 appearances overall for Aber, including 17 this season in all competitions.

The 23-year-old will be a huge boost to the Roosters defence as we look to climb out of the relegation zone.

Croeso nol, Jack!

The young defender also has a nack for scoring goals, having netted six in 11 for the young Seasiders this season.

MATCH PREVIEW | Penrhyncoch vs Llandudno

The Roosters welcome promotion hopefuls Llandudno to Cae Baker this Saturday as Gari Lewis’ side look to get their second win of the campaign.

The Roosters currently find themselves 14th in the JD Cymru North and go into this game off of the back of a penalty shootout loss at the hands of Ardal North Eat side Caersws, a result which saw Penrhyn exit the JD Welsh Cup. Liam Lewis’ goal was not enough as former Newtown man Neil Mitchell’s equaliser was enough to hold the score until the final whistle.

Despite the difficult start to the season, a win against the Seasiders could see Gari Lewis’ men climb as high as 9th place if all other results were to go their way.

Llandudno currently find themselves sat 2nd in the table, three points behind league leaders and rivals Colwyn Bay.

Llandudno enter this game on a good note after most recently knocking Llanidloes Town out of the WBS Tier Two League Cup. A comfortable 3-0 scoreline means Sean Eardley’s side will travel to Guilsfield in the next round.

Kick-off at Cae Baker is at 2:30pm. Come on down to support the lads and motivate them to get their second win of the season. See you there!

Daniel Owen joins on loan

Penrhyncoch FC are delighted to announce forward Daniel Owen has joined the club on loan from Aberystwyth Town until January 2023.

Despite only being 19 years-old, Daniel already has an extremely impressive goal-scoring record in both youth and senior men’s football.

Last season he represented both Aberystwyth Town’s U19’s side and Tregaron Turfs. For the young Black and Greens, he scored 17 goals in 22 games whilst for Tregaron’s first team he scored an incredible 36 goals in 29 games.

“Dan is another player I worked with in the academy at Aberystwyth at under-16 level.” Gari Lewis told the club’s media. “He’s frighteningly quick, very direct. He had a great season with Tregaron last year, he scored lots of goals in men’s football.

He’s just not quite managed to break into Aberystwyth’s 18-man squad at the moment so it’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to bring him here with Geoff [Kellaway] picking up a bad injury and Gitso [Steffan Gittins] out for three games, so he’s going to be a huge addition to the squad. Croeso i’r clwb Dan, a pob lwc!”

Croeso i Cae Baker Dan!
