A Llanfairfechan Town club statement said: “The club would also like to thank Rhys Griffiths and Adam Parry for all their efforts in helping the ladies get off the ground and forming into a team.
“Both coaches will now focus on their roles within the men’s set up.
“Everyone at the club hope you can join us in wishing Sadie and the ladies team all the very best in their first competitive season.”
