On the 9th January 2009 Golgedd Cymru took another important step forward in its march towards the Welsh Premiership. It was incorporated as a Cooperative Community Interest Company or CCIC.

Pictured here are members of the foundation board which will take the Company to its first AGM.

Community Interest Companies have an assets lock. In forming a CIC Rygbi Gogledd Cymru aims to protect the
organisation for the community of North Wales for perpetuity.

Foundation board Direct)ors will be Kenton Morgan (Chair), John Hardy (Facilities), Alun Pritchard (Corporate Communications), John Aby (Rugby), Nikki Davies (Health), Peredur Jenkins (WRU), Alwyn Jones (NWRC), Vince Ryan (Legal Affairs)
The CIC is a limited company with a cooperative structure. Membership is a nominal £5. This entitles members stand or propose members to the board, to vote at the AGM and to receive an electronic monthly newletter.


Playing against a Wooden Spoon Charity side made up mainly of National Division 2 players, Gogledd Cymru competed well and there was no score in this match for most of the first half. Adam Robson converted a penalty and the Anti-Assassins retorted with a converted try to make it 7-3 at the interval, Robson hitting the posts with a late penalty.
Hooker Andrew Baston was outstanding in a game played in wet muddy conditions. There was lack of cohesion in the Gogledd Cymru side, a reflection of a backline combination playing together for the first time and a forward back disrupted by injury and work commitments.
In the second half Gogledd Cymru started to improve their performance in the rucks but poor decision making and desperate individual try scoring efforts frustrated a number of try scoring opportunities.
As in the last game against Sale Jets, it was the ability of the opposition to punish Gogledd's mistakes that made the difference, even when these were made deep into their own territory.
A last minute try took the score to 19-3, in a game in which there were few positives for Gogledd Cymru; the addition of new players who, with time, will take this team to a higher level and the realisation that players have to be playing at this level, rather than at North Wales club rugby level in order to improve were two. Last season, Waterloo defeated Gogledd Cymru 37 -0 and this result indicated the improvement that the regional team has made over 2 seasons.
