No surprise to anyone to learn that Arriva’s star man is once again the prolific Scott Hughes. The lively forward is already on 27 goals for the 2019/20 season and has looked in inspiring form for Kevin Jones’ side.
Currently sat at the top of the pile but having never won the top scorer prize in the Anglesey League before, could this finally be the year he does so?
Second top scorer is winger Dion Williams who has hit a total of eight goals – four in the league and four in the cup.
Again no surprises here as Luke Allaway leads the race at Bod with 12 goals. The tall forward has hit more than 50 goals for the club during the last two seasons and has been their main contributor of goals for several seasons.
He’s not as far ahead of the pack as he has been in the past however, as they seem to be sharing the goalscoring burden this season with Aaron Jones hitting seven and Ioan Thomas on six.
Mark Thomas is the Llangefni-based club’s official top scorer on five but he recently departed to take over as manager of Gwynedd League side Llangoed.
Therefore, there current leading goal scorers are midfielders Lee Lewis and Andrew ‘Sbuggy’ Jones (above) who have both hit three goals each.
Fellow midfielder Ben Wright and rapid winger Macauley Lewis are just behind them on two each.
It’s Steven Whittaker AKA ‘Tyco’ who has contributed the most for The Bay at the midway point. 16 league goals and five in the cups, puts the experienced forward on 21 for the season.
Behind him are fellow forward Andy Williams on 15 goals and midfielder and club captain Keenan Downey, who is on eight.
HOLYHEAD HOTSPUR RESERVES
Last season, it was young winger Casey Gregg who lead the way for The Reserves (14 goals) and whilst he has already hit six during 2019/20, it’s Curt Williams who is the club’s current leading scorer with eight goals.
The forward, who returned from a serious injury recently, has been in great form for Tom Scott’s side, which once again features a good balance of youth and experience this season.
Craig Moore, who was top scorer for league champions Bryngwran Bulls last season with 60 goals is on five for Hotspur Reserves this season, having not made many appearances.
HOLYHEAD TOWN RESERVES
One of three new clubs to join the Anglesey League during the summer, Town’s top scorer at the moment is Luke Miles on five goals.
