Client Stories: Rhyl Football Club

With a new contract underway and a client relationship spanning over 10 years, we are very proud of our work with Rhyl Football Club (CPD Y Rhyl 1879), an exciting young club experiencing rapid growth.

Our Journey Working with Rhyl Football Club

Drawing of two people playing football

We first connected with the club in 2008, while we were helping the Welsh Government develop their approach to Learning Through Sport as part of Basic Skills Cymru. The club were running successful football in the community and learning programmes, with over 16,500 children being engaged in the year 2013-14 alone. As a result of this work, they had been selected as a national pilot for government funding.

However, as a new club experiencing rapid growth they needed specialist support. Adam Roche, the Managing Director and Club Secretary commented:

At CPD Y Rhyl 1879 we are a new club with huge ambitions and as we were growing very rapidly our key challenge was to build strategic relationships with local to national authorities alongside key business partners in order to support and deliver our goals and objectives.

Just Solutions supported the club in seeking funding and a suitable venue partnership for a 3G hub, by producing funding proposals to the Welsh Government and exploring a variety location options. With our support, the club were enabled to focus more on their crucial business objectives:

We needed strategic footballing expertise and resources to support us for maximum effectiveness, this would enable us to continue to focus on the day to day footballing objectives whilst maintaining positive progress on the longer term strategic goals, so we trusted Just Solutions to work with us and act on our behalf.

The latest stage in this journey is our recent contract to broker funding solutions which will enable them to buy the Belle Vue Stadium, a key North Wales asset used for UEFA club games and junior internationals. You can read more about this project here.

Client Testimonial: “I can’t recommend them highly enough”

We have thoroughly enjoyed our work in collaboration with Rhyl Football Club, and look forward to this next stage in the journey. We are proud to have received extremely positive feedback – Roche went on to say:

After our first meeting we immediately knew that Just Solutions brought not only expertise but also demonstrated a well respected network whilst offering fantastic value for money. Sara and Howard have been fantastic as they personally took the time to understand us, our club and our requirements so much so it makes you feel as though they are a part of and support your club 100% in everything they do.
Having worked with lots of consultants and partner organisations in my career, I would welcome any conversations with anyone considering using Just Solutions to know more about them as I can’t recommend them highly enough on a return on investment basis.
