CLUB-SCHOOL LINK INITIATIVE

The final match was played between Porth Y Felin side A vs Porth Y Felin side B which ended in penalties. The winning team won a trophy for their schools and each had medals.
Every child also received a match ticket to Conwy Borough’s friendly against Fleetwood Town on 14th July as well as an additional gift.
