History

Clawddnewydd joined the League in 1999 when the number of teams in the League was down to 10 during the previous season. The village had previously no experience of League Football, but the club was formed at the time when the Cae Cymro Community Centre was being built; a number of individuals were able to persuade the Community Centre Committee to undertake a massive project to level off a piece of ground to provide a football pitch for the Community. 

The Cae Cymro project has been a major success earning a number of National Awards, but the Football Club has also been a success in community terms and the Summer League has played a major part in that. Being aware of the number of single village teams that have had to resign from Summer League due to lack of players in the recent past, the League’s Executive Committee was anxious that the Clawddnewydd catchment area was made as big as reasonably possible to enable the club to exist in the future.

This club’s catchment area contains the villages of Clawddnewydd, Clocaenog and Derwen, also parts of Bryn Saith Marchog, Cyffylliog, Efenechtyd and Llanfwrog. 

The Club is now enjoying a highly successful period with two championships in the last three years, however even though they reached the final in 2012 but are still to win the League’s Knockout Shield competition.

Location

The Cae Cymro field is at the top end of the village just off the Melin-y-wig road junction with the B5105 Ruthin to Cerrig-y-drudion road. Views from the pitch side are stunning with a panorama of views from the Aran Mawddwy, across the Berwyn, Eglwyseg and Clwydian mountains.

Any traveller with a camper van can hook up to the overnight facilities, next door to the pitch – take in a match and then have a pint after the game at the nearby Glan Llyn Inn. – (perffick)

Clawddnewydd is a village 5 miles from Ruthin on B5105 road to Cerrig-y-drudion; enter the village and pass the Glan Llyn Inn on the left, take the second road (to Melinywig) on the left and the Cae Cymro complex is immediately on that junction.
