A club with a distinguished past, Rhyl were long-time members of the Cheshire League, which they won on two occasions in the late 40s and early 50s. During this time, they also won the Welsh Cup twice.
The club returned reluctantly to Wales from the North West Counties League in 1992. They were too late to enter the League of Wales, so played in the Cymru Alliance, winning the title and promotion to the LoW in 1993/4.
The club struggled in the top flight of Welsh football, but since being taken over by a consortium under former player Peter Parry, have seen improved results and in 2003/4 won the league title for the first time, as well as the Challenge Cup and the Welsh Cup.
