LLANRHAEADR manager Marc Griffiths insisted his side had nothing to fear ahead of their trip to Holywell Town in the Huws Gray Alliance on Saturday.

The villagers have enjoyed a remarkable start to the campaign with victories over Rhyl and Buckley Town followed by last week’s win at Holyhead Hotspur.

Llanrhaeadr’s start has seen them go level on points with pre-season title favourites Bangor City with a game in hand while Griffiths’ goal laden start to the campaign has won plaudits from far and wide.

The club has no playing budget and as a result many North Wales football pundits tipped Llanrhaeadr to struggle while the expensively assembled Bangor City squad under ex-TNS manager Craig Harrison tipped to walk away with the title at at canter.

Instead Llanrhaeadr’s superb start and Bangor’s calamitous opening to the campaign have turned the Huws Gray Alliance on its head.

Griffiths looked to restore calm and perspective and insisted his side remained underdogs for every game between now and the end of the season.

Griffiths said: “As with all the games this season we go into it with no pressure.

“Holywell are an established Huws Gray Alliance team and despite their slow start to the season we know that Saturday will be another massive test but it is one the lads look forward to.”

Holywell Town are managed by ex-Caersws defender Gareth Sudlow who took over at Halkyn Road from Jonny Haseldin at the end of last season.
