JT Hughes Monty Lge
BETTWS Football Club could yet mount a return from the grave.
The club entered hiatus last summer after resigning from the Spar Mid Wales League but efforts are now being made to return to the J T Hughes Montgomeryshire League next season.
The club has maintained its Tregynon Road pitch, kit and equipment and is now seeking a manager to take on the building of a team and capitalise on enthusiasm among young players in the community.
Club spokesman Malcolm Phillips said: “We have the pitch, dugouts, training equipment, kits and goalposts and interest in reviving the club so we need a manager to help re-form.
“Any interested candidates are invited to make contact with the club as soon as possible.”
Bettws’ return would provide a massive boost to the Montgomeryshire League which is expected to welcome at least three new sides at its annual meeting.
Forden United have re-formed following a year in the wilderness with Llanfyllin Town also confirming their intent to run a colts side in the league next season.
A reformed Newtown Rovers is also expected to start the season at Maldwyn Leisure Centre’s Plantation Road ground before making home of the Vaynor Field which will form part of the Newtown Unlimited Green Spaces project set to revolutionise the town’s recreation land.
