CONWY Borough have dedicated their JD Cymru North game against Colwyn Bay later this season to raise awareness of a national mental health charity.

The Tangerines’ designated their April 11 contest against the Seagulls’ in aid of State of Mind Sport, which was founded in 2011 with the aim of improving the mental health, wellbeing and working life of rugby league players and communities.

Club spokesman Darren Griffiths, said: “State of Mind Sport is a charity that harnesses the power of sport to promote positive mental health among sportsmen and women, fans and wider communities, and ultimately to prevent suicide.

“They work to raise awareness of the issues surrounding mental health and wellbeing and also deliver education on the subject to all levels of sport, business, education and community groups.

“As a club we are delighted to lend our support to this fantastic organisation and to help raise awareness of mental health issues.”

The club has commissioned a special one-off kit to mark the occasion, which has been designed by Ian Senior at SKkits and will feature State of Mind Sport’s logo on the front.

They were granted special dispensation to wear the different shirt by the Football Association of Wales for the contest, with further details surrounding the contest to be revealed in due course.

Any supporter wishing to purchase the shirt can do so by contacting the club via email at, which are priced at £35 for adults and £28 for children.

This is the latest awareness event that Conwy Borough have hosted in recent months, with their work to promote the Football v Homophobia initiative securing them a special award earlier this month.
