AFE’s Anglesey League Team of the Month (November 2019)

PICTURE by Darren Jones.

Josh Roberts (Cefni)

Star goalkeeper for the month in my eyes with two clean sheets out of a possible three.
Cefni had a massive 18 point deduction at the start of last month, but that didn’t stop them from picking up wins over Pentraeth Reserves, Valley and Holyhead Town Reserves.
They are now on -5points and Roberts’ performances in goal have helped them on their way to climbing back up the table slowly but surely.

Phil Jones (Hotspur Reserves)

It’s been quite the month for this 16-year-old.
Having become a valued member of The Reserves starting eleven under Tom Scott, Jones looked lively throughout November and bagged two goals in a 9-0 hammering of Llandegfan – adding to the three he had scored previously.
He also made his debut for the first team. Bright future ahead for this boy/man I think.

Dylan Jones (Cemaes Bay)

Few defenders from the island are as consistent as Jones when fully fit and Cemaes finally got to see a glimpse of his brilliance during November.
Having moved from Bro Goronwy in the summer, where he had been captain for a long time, Jones hadn’t made many appearances before last month due to other commitments.
However, November brought about some great showings from the big central defender – who even bagged three goals along the way.

Jack Halton (Pentraeth Reserves)

Another defender who impressed many during the month.
Perhaps the most memorable moment came in a stunning 3-2 win over Mountain Rangers in the first round of the Benllech Car Boot Trophy. He then scored again in a 3-2 defeat to Rangers a week later.
Halton is a highly-important member of Pentraeth’s side, is always vocal and leads his side well. He certainly deserves a bit of recognition.

Owain Davies (Llanfairpwll)

Another young star who has broken through in the Anglesey League this season.
Younger brother of team-mate Sion Emlyn Davies, 16-year-old Owain is a quality full-back who has performed consistently for Llanfairpwll.
His performances have not gone unnoticed either – with fans of the blog voting him into their Team of the Half Season.

Ben Wright (Cefni)

PICTURE: Wynne Evans

Another one who led the Cefni revival throughout November.
Wright is a dynamic central midfielder who can make a world of difference when he’s on top form. During November, he popped up with two vital goals and looked like the man he was last season.
He featured in my AL Team of the Season last year and it’s great to see him playing well and with confidence again.
He’s my Player of the Month for November.

Keenan Downey (Cemaes Bay)

PICTURE: Edryd Jones

Three things certain in life at the moment it seems – death, taxes and Downey making his way into AFE’s Team of the Month.
The midfielder has been in incredible form since returning to The Bay from Bodedern in the summer. November was no different either, as he popped up with five more goals and five assists too.
The Cemaes captain has been consistent throughout and he’ll be looking to guide his side to league/cup success this season.

Adam Thomas (Llanfairpwll)

One of the stars of the month without a doubt.
Thomas is a 17-year-old midfielder who has been brilliant for Llanfair, just as he was last season.
November saw him score at least one in each of Llanfair’s four league games.
No surprise then that fans of the blog voted Thomas as their AL Player of the Month for November.

Steven Whittaker (Cemaes Bay)

PICTURE: Edryd Jones

‘Tyco’ has looked unstoppable so far for The Bay this season.
The club’s top scorer added another seven goals to his tally for the season during November. His overall haul now stands at 27 goals in all competitions.
Having dropped down from Welsh Alliance football in the summer, Whittaker has barely had to get out of second gear at times but yet still looks incredible.
His finishing is top drawer and he’ll no doubt be up there on the top scorers list come May time.

Craig Moore (Hotspur Reserves)

Good to see ‘Midge’ back in amongst the goals again.
Having bagged 60 goals for league champions Bryngwran (now Trearddur Bay) Bulls, Moore has recently become more available for selection for Hotspur’s second and first team.
During a lively month in November, he bagged five goals (three v Llandegfan, two v Pentraeth Res) for The Reserves and a further four for the first team too.
He’s now up to double figures (10) in all comps for Tom Scott’s side.

Scott Hughes (Arriva Bangor)

PICTURE: Darren Jones

Can anyone stop this man this season? It seems as though the answer is no.
Eight goals in November for the little forward saw him take his ridiculous tally to 35 goals before Christmas and place him as the overall top scorer for the league in all competitions.
His pace and finishing is, on its day, the best in the league. Having gone so close to being crowned top scorer in the last two seasons (and bagging more than 100 goals in that time), will he now go on to claim his rightful place on the throne?

SUBS:

Sam Williams (Mountain Rangers)

Mountain Rangers rarely played during November but even that couldn’t stop Williams bagging seven more goals.
The prolific forward now has 26 goals (17 league, 9 cup) already this season and he’s been Rangers’ main man throughout in their debut Anglesey League campaign.

Mike Edwards (Hotspur Reserves)

In amongst the several talented youngsters at Hotspur Reserves is a more-experienced one who’s really making a difference in the middle of the park.
Edwards is easily one of the best midfielders in the Anglesey League this season and added some goals to his game in November – popping up with three.

Callum Jones (Llanfairpwll)

Yet another young star who’s making a name for himself this season.
Jones has been a threat from out wide for Llanfair and the highlight of his month was bagging four goals in a 9-0 win over Holyhead Town Reserves.
He’s certainly one to keep an eye on as the season develops.
