BERRIEW Football Club have continued their rebuild ahead of the new MMP Central Wales League North season.

The Rhiewsiders struggled for much of last season following a turbulent summer which saw two managers depart along with a host of players.

However the club has since consolidated and is looking ahead to the new campaign having been strengthened with a draft of new players joining the ranks.

The village club has re-formed its reserve team to compete in the JT Hughes Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire League while also forming a women’s team after several years of building membership and a thriving junior section.

The Rhiewsiders have also welcomed the return of midfielder Dewi Hughes from local rivals Abermule.

Spencer Roberts and Callum Greatorex have joined the club from Ardal North East League side Welshpool Town.
