Tuesday 13 August Plas Roe St Asaph 6.30pm ko


After a very welcome home win in our first game of the 2019/20 season the games will come thick and fast as the league try and make use of the lighter evenings.

On Tuesday 13th August we play a derby game with local rivals St Asaph City and go there looking to bring points home. As well as it being a derby there will be added spice as our centre forward Jake Walker and defender Jon Terry both played for St Asaph previously and will be returning to Plas Roe for the first time since joining Denbigh.

Manager Dewi Llion is fully aware that it will be a tough game and that the City manager, former Rhyl player and Rhyl Youth manager Daniel Brewerton, has got the side organised and playing good football.

It was good to see Jake getting two goals against Mynydd Llandegai, a great kick start to his season and we will be looking for more goals from him this campaign.

We spoke to our Life President, Robert ' Popsi ' Griffiths and asked for his views of the game last Saturday and our chances come Tuesday. He said " I am glad we won, obviously, but to be honest whilst watching the game I did not think we were going to win by such a big score. Good to see some goals although our defence looked pretty good and kept them out. Stu Vernon did well getting plenty of the ball. I still rate him. He has defensive qualities and can get past a man if he has to and can pass a ball. Probably the team has room to improve it has to be said. I don't know much about the St Asaph team but we have to go to places and go there to do well. I will be at the match."

No up to date team news at the moment although Les Brophy appeared to come through the last game unscathed. KP will be out with his knee injury and there has to be some doubt about Robbo who is carrying an injury. Miles Todd remains suspended.

We go to St Asaph to do well and bring the points home so please get down there to support the lads

C'mon Denbigh !
