Dyffryn Banw player-manager Chris Roberts has praised the club’s determination to establish themselves as a genuine force in Mid Wales football.
Many expected Banw’s entrance into the Spar Mid Wales League from Amateur League status to be short-lived. But the club has established a reputation as being one of the hardest to beat as it launches its new season in Division One.
“The committee is excellent and forward thinking,” said the 35 year-old who led Banw to the 2008 Amateur League Division One title. “We are definitely moving in the right direction. On the pitch the squad is looking stronger and we are supported off the pitch too. Ground improvements are coming on and we hope to see the changing rooms constructed pitch-side by the end of the season.”
The Spar Mid Wales Division One will be extremely competitive this season with the summer reconstruction of the leagues throwing Berriew and Llanidloes back in the fray. But Roberts is not looking for quick fixes or success in his bid to ensure Banw cement their Mid Wales status.
“For us it is about striking the fine balance between using local players and attracting one or two from outside to ensure we maintain out league status,” he said. “We have not had too many youngsters coming through so hopefully we can keep the reserves going and these players will progress.”
