THE LILYWHITES

These shots of a Caernarvon v. Rhyl match in 1954 come from soccer fan Dave Williams and they conjure up memories of a bygone era of comparative innocence in the game and good times for Rhyl F.C.

The team won the North Wales Coast Challenge Cup in 1953-54 and again in 1954-55, and earlier in that decade they won The Welsh Cup twice. You can keep up to date with the Lilywhites at the following sites:
