Anglesey League 19/20: A look at some of the CPD Y Fali stars …

PICTURE by Cemaes Bay FC

Jerome Sillence

PICTURE: Wynne Evans

Was a handful when he was at eventual 2018/19 Anglesey League champions Bryngwran Bulls and has been the same upon his return to Cae Mwd this season.

Sillence is a pacey winger/forward who loves running in behind defenders and creating chances both for himself and for team-mates. He’s notched up eight goals predominantly from out wide so far this season.

He has now gone on to join the Marines I believe so AFE would like to wish him all the best on that journey!

Tudur Williams

Casey Boylan aside, this man has been Fali’s best player so far this season in my opinion. Central midfielder Williams was another who returned to the club over the summer (from Llanerchymedd).

Since then, he’s more than proved his worth, putting in several Man of the Match performances and bagging eight goals too.

If Valley are going to be in the title race come the end of the season, then I’m sure Williams will have played a big part in them being in that position.

Paul Williams

PICTURE: Wynne Evans

Highly underrated player who can play in a number of positions.

Williams has been a key player at Fali for a number of seasons now and his work rate, whether he plays at full back or as a central midfielder, is brilliant.

No matter who’s come into the club over the summers gone by, he’s always remained as one of Dan Jones and Barry Rowlands’ main men.

Casey Boylan

PICTURE: Darren Jones

Made an outstanding personal contribution to Fali’s start to the season – including hitting a hat-trick on his debut and winning the MOTM award in each of his first six matches for the club.

The central midfielder, who makes picking out team mates with a great pass look effortless, bagged 11 goals and placed himself as league top scorer very early on.

However, Boylan has now departed the club to return to Welsh Alliance One club Bodedern Athletic – who he had left for Fali over the summer.

Tony Meyer

PICTURE: Wynne Evans

Another useful and versatile player who joined the club from Bryngwran Bulls in the summer – where he had spent several successful seasons previously.

Meyer, who usually plays as a full back or winger, is a pacey player who has added a real spark to Fali’s counter-attack this season.

Callum Wood

PICTURE: Wynne Evans.

Midfielder/Attacker who has been something of a super-sub whenever he’s been called upon for Fali this season.

Wood is another player who always gives 110% to the cause and has popped up with two goals so far this season.

Andrew Bailey

PICTURE: Wynne Evans

Experienced central midfielder who, after captaining Bryngwran Bulls to a cup double in 2017/18, arrived at Cae Mwd a year later.

Since then, he’s proved to be a quality player at Cae Mwd – hitting double figures in terms of goals last season.

Bailey is a player who loves to get stuck in in the middle of the park and his leadership skills are highly valued at Fali too I’m sure as one of the older heads in the squad.

Dion Evans

PICTURE: Wynne Evans

Club captain who is without doubt one of the best defenders in the division.

After briefly leaving the club for a spell with Bodedern Athletic, Evans is now back at Cae Mwd and has led his team very well already.

The centre back is solid in the heart of the defence and has also popped up with two goals.

He also plays for Bangor University’s second team and you can see what that has done for his confidence and his overall game in general.

Ryan Heywood

PICTURE: Darren Jones

Another solid centre back within this Fali side, Heywood (right above) has established himself as a highly reliable defender.

Alongside Evans, the pair are proving to be a great defensive partnership and have four goals between them so far this season too.

Luke Roberts

Another versatile player, who’s been deployed mainly as a defender this season.

Like Williams, Roberts returned to Cae Mwd from Llanerchymedd over the summer and hasn’t looked back since.

Jacob Reid

PICTURE: Darren Jones

Now the club’s number one, Reid has stepped up with some confident performances between the sticks this season.

Having lost Luke Owen, Paul Wilding and Jamie Owen over the past two seasons, it was highly important that Valley brought in a pair of safe hands.

And that’s exactly what both Jacob Reid and Peter Finn are on their day.


Shout out also to – reliable defender Dan Manning, solid centre back Ashley Hughes, rapid winger Owain Roberts and attacker Mike Williams, who I’m sure will make an impact during the season.

Manning is a reliable defensive option, being able to play as a full back or centre back – as is Hughes. Roberts, who signed from Holyhead Hotspur in the summer, is a lively wide man and Williams is a tall striker who has hit more than 50 goals over the last two seasons.

CPD Y Fali scorers 2019/20 so far (Cup goals in brackets):
Casey Boylan – 11 goals
Jerome Sillence – 7 (1) = 8 goals
Tudur Williams – 5 (3) = 8 goals
Paul Williams – 4 goals
Callum Wood – 1 (1) = 2 goals
Dion Evans – 1 (1) = 2 goals
Ryan Heywood – 2 goals
Andrew Bailey – 2 goals
Owain Roberts – 1 goal
