FORMER Llanrwst United footballer Mike Lundstram has raised a substantial amount to help his old club repair their base at Gwydir Park.

The experienced striker, who has enjoyed a superb career at numerous high-profile clubs from across the region, set up a crowdfunding page for the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One outfit after flooding decimated their facility last month.

Their kitchen will need a completely new renovation, including new fridges, and the barriers and goal on the pitch have also been damaged beyond repair.

A large number of the club’s storage containers are also in need of repair, with the condition of expensive machinery stored unknown at the present time.

Lundstram, who departed the Rwsters’ earlier this season to fulfil his dream of playing with son Benn at Penmaenmawr Phoenix, handed over £1,250 to the club at their recent 3-1 home win over St Asaph City.

The forward wanted to help his former club as “they did an awful lot for me”, and the page is still taking donations in the hope of reaching their £2,000 target.

United’s penultimate fixture of the campaign saw them beaten 2-1 at Nantlle Vale on Saturday.

The home side opened the scoring towards the end of the first period when Sion Williams found the net on 41 minutes, but the visitors struck back after the break when Stephen Whiteley converted a chance with 47 on the clock.

This joy proved to be short-lived as the hosts restored their advantage on 50 minutes when Rhys Williams finished well for what proved to be the deciding goal of the game.
