A club with a very professional strategy for the future, Cefn Druids was created in 1992 from a merger of bitter rivals Cefn Albion and Druids United.
The Cefn Druids 2000 scheme was launched in 1997, designed to take the club into the new millennium, with the aim of becoming the first club from the Wrexham area to play in the League of Wales by the year 2000.
For the start of the 1998 season the club was given a massive boost following the signing of a five year sponsorship deal with local chemical company Flexsys. The agreement, which included the installation of floodlights at a cost of 38,000, enabled the club to comply with the ground criteria requirements of the League of Wales.
The dream became a reality in May 1999 when the club were crowned Cymru Alliance Champions and took their place in the LoW.
For 2003/4, the club will change its name to NEWI Cefn Druids, following a new sponsorship deal with the North East Wales Institute of Higher Education.
