McDonald’s FAW Trust Community Football Awards
On Thursday night, at the McDonald’s FAW Trust Community Football Awards (North East), our Junior counterparts were presented with the Club of the Year Award, proudly represented by Chairman and Club Secretary, Kev Holden and Emma Iball.
Our Junior Chairman has been quick to recognise the overall efforts of all stakeholders of the club, ‘After winning this prestigious regional award, we are automatically given the chance to win the Club of the Year Award across the whole of Wales.
This is something we should all be proud of and is in recognition of all managers, coaches, parent reps and everybody who contributes to the club. Well done!’
Under 19s Team
As part of our ongoing commitment to provide a pathway for our Junior players to move into senior football, this season has saw the implementation of an Under 19s boys team come into fruition.
We have successfully integrated the majority of last season’s Under 16s squad into our senior set up, a few of which have had experience of first team and reserve football already this season.
Sunday saw our Under 19s take part in their first competitive fixture, despite a 2-0 loss, this marks a huge step forward for our football club and the football community within Buckley.
Our first team manager, Dan Moore, had this to say, ‘having worked with our Under 16s of last season for a period last year, I knew that it would be vital to retain as many of them as possible, they’re a good group.
We’ve already seen a number of them play in our first and reserve teams this season and this is a trend we expect to continue, and hopefully we now have a big piece of the jigsaw in place for years to come.’
Buckley Cricket Club Success
Also on Sunday, our Cricket Club saw their Under 13s boys team lift the Welsh Cup.
Under 13s coach and former Buckley Town player, Rhys Jones, commented, ‘We played 5 knockout rounds before finals day on Sunday. We beat Carmarthen in the semi final by ten wickets (they beat us in the finals last year so that was nice!), and then an immense performance saw us beat Newport in the final. Easily the best day and feeling of my life!’
From everyone at Buckley Town Football Club, we would like to congratulate our friends at Buckley Cricket Club on this achievement, and for their continued progress and success in providing a top class environment for young players from the area to enjoy their sport!’
Buckley Town JFC are proud to announce that we have been selected to host the FAW Trust National Programme ‘Huddle’
Huddle is designed to introduce girls aged 5-12 to football in a fun, friendly and social environment, giving more girls the opportunity to get involved without the pressure of joining an official team or feel the need to be good at a sport.
Huddle will be delivered for a course of 12 weeks, every Thursday 6 – 7 pm, starting the 12th September in the indoor sports hall at Buckley Leisure Centre. The focus of these sessions will be on fun activities that develop the girls’ football skills through gameplay, whilst also increasing confidence.

The Football Association of Wales has today (24 July 2019) announced a new brand identity and sponsorship deal for the top two tiers of the men’s domestic game.
Forty-five clubs from across the country will come together as one community, under a new identity: the Cymru Leagues.
‘Cymru Premier’, the newly named top tier of Welsh football will form the peak of the new pyramid system. ‘Cymru North’ and ‘Cymru South’ replaces the Huws Gray Alliance and Welsh League Division 1 respectively, with both leagues coming under the FAW’s jurisdiction for the first time.
JD will continue their support of Welsh domestic football by becoming the title sponsor of all three divisions, which will henceforth be known as the JD Cymru Premier, JD Cymru North and JD Cymru South, with JD Cymru Leagues becoming the overarching name for the leagues.
The three leagues encompass every corner of Wales, which is why the new bilingual naming system places ‘Cymru’ at the heart of Welsh football.
Alongside the naming system, a new visual identity has been created for the leagues. A key component of the FAW’s brand identity, the daffodil, has previously been used to represent the 11 players of the national teams and will now be incorporated within the Cymru Leagues.
Seven daffodils, each representing one of the seven leagues of Welsh domestic football’s top three tiers, upon completion of the pyramid restructure, come together to form the striking ball logo.
The recent success of our domestic teams has captured the true Welsh spirit of supporters across the country. A radical departure from past identities, the modern logo reflects the modernisation of the new pyramid structure and the future ambitions of Welsh football.
JD recognise this and have been a partner of Welsh domestic football since 2015 and the new deal sees the FAW’s partnership with JD cemented for the next seven seasons, with the sponsorship running until the 2025/26 season.
