Chris Williams desires Ruthin to climb the league
Bottom of the Huws Gray Alliance, Ruthin Town looked set for relegation just a few months ago.
However, recent wins over Holywell Town and Holyhead Hotspur have given the Denbighshire side a fighting chance. Ruthin now turn their attention to Caersws on Saturday.
Last time out Ruthin beat Holyhead away from home. Williams reflected on how the side played and praised his sides performance despite not being at their best.
“Extremely happy to get a win last week, I didn’t think we played particularly well but the character and attitude the lads showed to go and get a winner was really pleasing.”

“To be honest I think it’s important we just work as hard as we can in the final twelve games and see where it takes us! To get off the foot of the league and start climbing is obviously our objective and we’ll do our best to achieve it.”
Ruthin have got 7 points out of a possible 12 which has seen them in inspired form.
“We’ve had a decent Christmas period but that’s all it’s been, imperative that we keep working hard and try and carry on picking up points as often as we can.”
Up until the 10th December, Ruthin couldn’t buy a win for nor love or money but a turnaround has seen Chris Williams inspire his troops.
“A big turning point in my opinion was losing 6-0 at Conwy. I questioned how much the lads wanted to be part of this team, did they have the desire to work as hard as possible and give everything to keep our club in this league!
Since then their reaction has been excellent! We’ve trained hard two sometimes three times a week and it’s definitely helped us on pitch.”
With already so many transfer dealings going on all around the Welsh pyramid system, Williams is more focused on bringing through local talent.
“We rely on all local lads – we are hopeful of possibly adding to squad and hoping to have llyr Morris available more often in New Year as his university commitment relaxes a little which would be great because he’s an excellent player for us.”
Ruthin kick-off against Caerws kicks off at 14:00 at the Memorial Playing Fields.
