Player focus: Bodorgan’s top five stars of the season

ALL PICTURES by Wynne Evans.

FOLLOWING on from the articles on Bryngwran Bulls, Caergybi, Mynydd Tigers and Valley Athletic’s top five stars of the season, this time around Arron Evans focuses on the much-improved Bodorgan boys.

Managed by the trio of John Webster, Dave Webster and Robin Griffiths, the club has certainly improved in terms of performances at spells this season and have surprised many with some of their results.

Their Megan Cup victory over Valley Athletic for example was a particularly impressive win and reaching the Elias Cup final was another fine achievement.

Here are the top five players who have stood out at Cae Cob (and beyond) this season for me …

Steve Davies

Position: Right back/Centre back

Davies signed for Bod from Pentraeth Reserves fairly early on in the season and his introduction into the side certainly helped tighten things up defensively.

Predominantly a centre back, he has been deployed most often at right back for Bodorgan and has impressed.

His tough tackling and no-nonsense defending have turned him into a firm favourite at the club.

Sam Hallas

Position: Central midfielder

Club captain Hallas has once again shined through for Bodorgan this season.

He can often be seen making things tick for his side in the middle of the park with his passing and creativity.

Having been a member of this squad for a number of years now, Hallas has become a vital part of their recent improvements as a side.

Darragh Byrne

Darragh

Position: Midfielder

The midfield engine for Bodorgan, Byrne has worked his socks off in the centre of the park to earn his side some vital points this season.

The Irishman has been a regular starter in the first team and has also popped up with a couple of goals along the way too.

Danny Connolly

Position: Striker

One half of Bodorgan’s deadly duo up top, Connolly has seriously impressed since making his move to Cae Cob from Holyhead Hotspur Reserves.

He’s hit 18 goals (5 for HH Reserves) in total this season and has been in terrific form in front of goal for Bodorgan, scoring some great goals too.

Connolly has formed a great partnership with fellow striker Allaway and it’s no secret that the fact that those two have clicked with one another has meant that Bodorgan have become a far better team in recent months.

The striker’s experience of playing for the likes of Hotspur’s Reserves and Trearddur Bay have certainly come in handy for both himself and Bodorgan in the Anglesey League.

Luke Allaway

Position: Striker

The main man up front in terms of goals, Allaway has proved to be a real threat in front of goal for Bodorgan this season.

The tall forward has hit 28 goals and has been Bodorgan’s best player by far this season in my (and I’m sure many other people’s) during the 2017/18 campaign.

Known for always scoring penalties, Allaway has been one of the division’s sharpest finishers this year.

It’s also worth giving a mention to midfielder Jake Hughes too as he is a key player in Bodorgan’s midfield, who often goes unnoticed. He has fantastic stamina and his work rate is second to none.
