Lawsons and Henllan Football Club – a past and future to be proud of

Henllan FC Juniors U 12's June 2015

HENLLAN Football Club has been in existence since 1929 and caters for all ages from primary school upwards. Present home is at Top Park, Ty Coch Street, Henllan. Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd is proud to be main sponsor of the Senior team which, like Lawsons, has an illustrious history of which it is rightly proud.

The team was admitted to the Llandyrnog and District Summer league in 1932 and won the title at its very first attempt.  The decade of the 50’s was a classic period for Henllan, during this time they finished inside the top 3 on 7 occasions, winning the title twice. The North Wales Times Shield was also won in 1957 and Henllan finished runners up in 1955 & 59. It was during these years that Roy Allen would have his first airing in a Henllan shirt. He would go on and play for Blackburn Rovers, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry City. The 1960’s saw Henllan continue to be a successful Summer League outfit, only twice during the decade did they fall out of the top four , winning the title in 1963 and 1965, and the Shield in 1964.

Over the next 40 years Henllan enjoyed some successes and some failures but, undaunted, the stalwart supporters kept faith and continue to do so. The 2012 season ended with a resounding success for the club, winning the Shield Final and ensuring that Henllan is still a force to be reckoned with in the Llandyrnog and District Summer League.

Ever mindful of investing in the future, Lawson Civil Engineering and Utilities Ltd also sponsors the junior team which plays in the Rhyl and District League.
