Welcome to Conwy Borough Juniors

Conwy Borough Juniors were established in 1966 by the late Bob Lloyd MBE & are one of the longest running junior teams within the Colwyn & Aberconwy area.

It was a request from a PE teacher at Aberconwy school that led to the formation of Conwy Borough as a junior club, the request was put to Bob to set up a football team outside of the school to give the children from the area a chance to play the game in a organised environment.

Such was the volume of players looking to play for Conwy Borough it left Bob with no option but to host trials over a number of years.

Bob went on to run a number of teams over the years at Under 9,11,12,14 & 16 level which produced players such as Mickey Thomas(Wrexham, Manchester United, Stoke City & Wales) & Eddie Niedzwiecki(Wrexham, Chelsea & Wales)

Bob ran the club virtually single handily until the mid 1990' and managed his last championship winning team in the 1992/93 season of the Colwyn & Aberconwy Under 12 section.

Following Bob' poor health in the 90's the club was looked after by Steve Braithwaite who had joined the from Conwy Devils JFC.

Borough enjoyed a successful period in the late 90's & early noughties, in the 1997/98 season Steve Braithwaite' Under 15's finished league runners up and he also produced a good Under 9's team which was to be the last team Bob was to be involved in.

In 2000 a Girls section was developed in conjunction with the FAW Trust and was to produce more success than could have been imagined following a stint in the boys league they went on to finish runners up in the NWCFA Mini Tournament, Winners & Runners up in the Bangor City Ladies Tournament which the final was decided on penalties, runners up in a mixed tournament held by Llanrwst United and runners up in the FAW mini festival, however there biggest achievement came as they took part in the Glan Conwy Tournament in July 2000 competing in an all boys environment and coming out winners beating Penrhyn Bay on penalties.

In June 2001 they took part in the FAW National festival only losing out to Cardiff 3-2, and later that summer went on to beat Liverpool FC 4-0.

The squad produced three Welsh trialist and several members of the North Wales Centre of Excellence & Conwy County Squad, which included Aimee Todd who went on to play for Manchester United & Liverpool.

In the 2001/02 season the Under 12 boys finished league runners up and went one better the following year winning the Colwyn & Aberconwy league title, this was a team which included Bob' grandson Callum.

The Under 15' squad of 2004/05 recorded a fantastic honour for the club as they won the North Wales FA Challenge Cup.

In April of 2011 Bob Lloyd MBE sadly passed away, he had become president of the club following his days of managing teams and was also registration secretary to the mini football section of the Colwyn & Aberconwy junior league, who named their annual mini football tournament after him for his service to junior football.

In July of 2011 Conwy Borough JFC became affiliated to Conwy United FC and for the first and only time were not only know as Conwy Borough but Conwy Borough United.

In the summer of 2012 Conwy United FC was re-branded and became Conwy Borough FC which saw the junior section and the senior section of the club merge to become one.

Since the re-brand the junior section has doubled in size and this season fielded eight teams from under 8s to 16s and also includes a Mini Tangerines section which is designed for three to five year olds.

There is currently several players within the junior section which are at local academies and the 2012/13 season saw our under 12s complete a league and cup double as well as picking up the SCI Mitre Tournament trophy.

The club will this season plan to expand on the number of teams as we look to add a new under 7s and 8s to our under 9s,10s,11s (all of which have two squads), under 12s,under 14s & under 16s.
