IT has been another memorable Huws Gray Alliance campaign so far, and sports reporter Dean Jones picks out some standout performers in his Team of the Season so far.


Paul Pritchard (Porthmadog)

The experienced keeper has been at the top of his game for Port so far this season, and he has played a leading role in their fantastic success that currently sees them sitting in second position in the standings.

He is a fantastic shot stopper that has long been one of the standout performers in his position at this level, and the former Caernarfon Town star is a proven winner which has been another huge asset for Port to call upon since he was brought in to replaced long-serving squad member Richard Harvey.


Sam Barnes (Bangor City)

The Citizens’ skipper has been an absolute rock for his side so far this term, providing the ambitious club with a superb ball-winner and aerial threat at both ends of the field.

His leadership on and off the field has been a massive lift to a club that have been through a tremendous amount in such a short space of time, but there is now a genuine feeling that the worst is behind them and

Ben Nash (Rhyl)

The talented centre-half has grown with confidence and truly excelled for the Lilywhites so far this season, and he has quickly emerged as one of the brightest young talents plying their trade outside of the JD Welsh Premier League.

Steve Tomassen (Airbus Broughton)

Tomassen was one of the leading lights in the Wingmakers’ season of underachievement last term, and he has picked up where he left off this time around and been a big influence on their dominant opening half of the campaign.

He is equally adept in the air as he is on the floor and is a supreme organiser at the back, and Tomassen is one of many of the current Airbus squad that would not look out of place should they carry on this form and reach the JD Welsh Premier League.

Brandon Burrows (Flint Town United)

The silky central midfielder is a joy to watch with the ball at his feet, with his creativity and ability to spot a pass gaining widespread plaudits for the Silkmen this term.

He has the ability to take over any given game such is his desire to get on the ball and make things happen, and he has been the cog that makes United tick throughout a very encouraging start to the season.

Alex Darlington (Bangor City)

Darlington is the only remaining face from the Citizens’ side that finished second in the top-flight last season, and he is a real luxury in the middle of the park that does his best work in the final third.

His constant ability to link-up with the front line has also brought with it a number of goals, which is down to his ability to time his runs to absolute perfection.

Jacob Farleigh (Bangor City)

The former New Saints starlet has lit up the second tier so far this season with some electric displays for the Citizens, and the sky is the limit in terms of what he can achieve in the future if he continues to develop at his current rate.

He is a very direct runner that is fearless with the ball at his feet, and it is no surprise to see him grow in confidence as City’s results have improved.

Shaun Cavanagh (Porthmadog)

Cavanagh is a mercurial talent that looks to have finally found a home at Port, and he is another that can turn a game on its head if he is in the right mood.

His quality of delivery and decision making have improved significantly so far this term, which has been a springboard to some outstanding individual and team success.

Mark Cadwallader (Flint Town United)

The outstanding Cadwallader started the season like a house on fire, but his performances have been hugely consistent throughout and he seems to have really thrived after being given more responsibility to express himself by manager Niall McGuinness.

He has always possessed an enormous amount of natural ability, and the former Rhyl standout looks set to continue to play a pivotal role for his side as they look to attain their lofty ambitions as the season progresses.


Asa Hamilton (Airbus Broughton)

The difference Hamilton has made to the Wingmakers so far this season cannot be underestimated, and his physical presence and ability to disrupt a back-four has been an element of their game that was sorely lacking during the previous campaign.

He is a nightmare to play against and can hurt you in a variety of different ways, and when Hamilton is at the very top of his game then there is not much any defender in the league can do to stop him making an impact.

Llyr Morris (Ruthin Town)

Last season’s top scorer has proven that his success last term was not a one-off, and it is not hard to see why the hometown hero is held in such high regard.

Morris is a lethal finisher who works extremely hard from the front to further aid his side’s cause, and manager Chris Williams seems to bring out the very best out of him and he will be hoping this continues long into the future.
