ARRIVA BANGOR

1 – Scott Hughes (39 goals)
2 – Dion Williams (10 goals)
3 – Reece Thompson (3 goals)

PICTURE: Darren Jones

I think we all now who the main man is for The Busmen by now and so it’s no surprise to Hughes leading the line for them again this season.

The tricky little forward is undoubtedly one of the best finishers in the division and has 39 to his name already this season.

Behind him are speedy winger Dion Williams, who’s reached double figures last weekend and then Reece Thompson, who has now departed for Gwynedd League side Bethesda.

BODORGAN

1 – Luke Allaway (15 goals)
2 – Aaron Jones (8 goals)
3 – Ioan Thomas and Connor Rees (6 goals)

Again, no surprises here for any true Anglesey League fans. Allaway has been the top scorer at Bod for several seasons now and that doesn’t look like changing any time soon.

Having hit 28 in 2017/18 and 16 last season (where he briefly left the club to play at a higher level), he’s been in good form for Bod in the early stages of this season.

Aaron Jones, who can play pretty much anywhere on the pitch from right back to up top, is the club’s second top scorer with eight goals. Summer signings Ioan Thomas (Trearddur Bay Bulls) and Connor Rees (Aberffraw) have also stood out, bagging six so far.

CEFNI

1 – Ben Wright (9 goals)
2 – Mark Thomas (5 goals)
3 – Lee Lewis (4 goals)

Midfielder Ben Wright made it into my Team of the Season last year and although it took him some time this year, he’s now beginning to find that great form again.

For me, he’s one of the best middle men in the division on his day and can really change a game on his own when he puts his mind to it. He’s not Cefni’s top scorer too with nine.

Player-manager Mark Thomas (Who left to take charge of Gwynedd League side Llangoed some month ago and is doing a fab job there!) is still their second top scorer with five. Wide man Lee Lewis has four goals.

CEMAES BAY

1 – Steven Whittaker (34 goals)
2 – Andy Williams and Keenan Downey (15 goals)
3 – Dylan Jones and Daniel Jones (9 goals)

A whole host of Welsh Alliance-level talent are playing for The Bay this season and so it’s no wonder they’ve been scoring goal after goal in the Anglesey League.

Experienced forward Steven Whittaker AKA ‘Tyco’ is leading the way with 34 goals and has been in consistent form throughout, despte missing some weeks through injury.

Captain Keenan Downey has also been sensational, firing in 15 goals from midfield, the same amount as veteran striker Andy Williams, who arrived from long term club Bro Goronwy in the summer. Fellow former Bro man Dylan Jones has scored nine from centre back and exciting young talent Daniel Jones is also one shy of double figures.

HOLYHEAD HOTSPUR RESERVES

1 – Curt Williams (11 goals)
2 – Casey Gregg and Craig Moore (10 goals)
3 – Phil Jones (6 goals)

Back from a long-term injury with a bang, Williams is leading the way in what is predominantly a young side being led by Tom Scott this season. His comeback match was one to remember – bagging a perfect hat-trick in an 8-1 hammering of Llandegfan.

Behind him are Craig Moore (who has now returned to Gwynedd League side Trearddur Bay Bulls) on 10 goals and 18-year-old wide man Casey Gregg, who popped up with 15 last season and is already on his way there again this term.

Perhaps most impressive of all however has been the breakthrough of left back Phil Jones. Despite being only 16, he’s hit six goals for The Reserves and also already made his first team debut.

HOLYHEAD TOWN

1 – Luke Miles (5 goals)
2 – Liam Owens (3 goals)
3 – Ryan Hughes, Asa Thomas and Steven Owen (2 goals)

Both of Town’s leading scorers have now departed the club with midfielder Luke Miles having joined Valley and Liam Owens having joined Llandegfan just last week.

It’s not all doom and gloom though with former club hero Tom Hadley having returned to Millbank from Trearddur Bay Bulls and it’s fair to say that goals can be expected from him as the weeks go on.

The likes of forward Ryan Hughes, player-coach Steven Owen and young talent Robert Thomas are also more than capable of grabbing a goal or two as well, as they have already proven.

LLANDEGFAN

1 – Robert Boyes and Paul Jones (5 goals)
2 – Dave Parry (4 goals)
3 – Kieran Fritter and Nathan Harris (2 goals)

The only club to currently have two players sharing the top scorer position at this moment in time.

The prize could be shared at Llandeg come the end of the campaign unless anyone can outscore Robert Boyes or Paul Jones, both on five goals. 18-year-old midfielder Boyes, signed from Llangoed in the summer of 2018, hit three goals last term but has already bettered that this term. Jones, 35, was brought in from Cefni in January 2019 and hit three goals before adding five more this term.

Behind them in the pecking hero is Dave Parry – the two goal hero who earned them their first win in more than two years last Saturday. He’s on four goals and behind him is midfielder turned centre back Kieran Fritter who’s popped up with two goals (against Valley and Holyhead Town).

LLANFAIRPWLL

1 – Elliott Jones (8 goals)
2 – Tom Zalot (7 goals)
3 – Cai Evans, Callum Jones and Adam Thomas (5 goals)

Llanfair’s main man (in terms of goals at least) has been injured for some weeks now but is still leading the way on the club’s goal-scoring charts.

Elliott Jones, who arrived from Llandegfan having not scored for them last season, had been in terrific form before his hamstring injury, picking up eight goals and standing out as a key player.

Young forward Tom Zalot is the club’s second top scorer, but he has now returned to former club Llangoed, and so it will be up to the likes of midfield trio Cai Evans, Adam Thomas and Callum Jones to try and catch up to Elliott’s tally.

MOUNTAIN RANGERS

1 – Sam Williams (45 goals)
2 – Simon Kay (12 goals)
3 – Terry Watkinson (8 goals)

Rangers are blessed to have the league’s current top goalscorer in their ranks.

Having hit a record-breaking TWELVE goals in a 16-0 drubbing of Cefni recently, Sam ‘Ziggy’ Williams shot to the top of the goalscorer pile. He’s now leading the pack on 45 goals and is on the way to breaking a club record at Mountain Rangers too. Club legend John Hayes bagged 56 goals in 1993/94 but Williams looks certain to surpass that total come the end of the campaign.

Behind Ziggy is former Cymru Premier player Simon Kay. The club captain, who plays in midfield, has hit twelve goals so far and has been a vital component in Alex Philp’s side.

Behind that dynamic duo is Terry Watkinson on eight goals. Having impressed for both Llanfairpwll and Arriva Bangor last season, the midfielder is once again proving to be class.

PENTRAETH RESERVES

1 – Lewis Owen (7 goals)
2 – Kenny Williams (5 goals)
3 – Tom Jones (4 goals)

A different top scorer has emerged at Bryniau Fields so far this season. After Kenny Williams finished as the club’s leading goal-getter in 2018/19 with 21 to his name, he’s only fired in five so far this term due to being unavailable for the most part.

Taking his place at the top is skilful forward Lewis Owen, who just recently turned 21. Having played for the club’s first team for a few seasons, he’s dropped down to The Reserves this year and has been great, hitting in seven goals.

Tom Jones, who plays out wide most of the time, has scored four so far. He popped up with double figures last season.

VALLEY

1 – Casey Boylan (11 goals)
2 – Tudur Williams (9 goals)
3 – Jerome Sillence (8 goals)

Incredibly, Fali’s top scorer is a man who left the club back in September. Midfielder Casey Boylan returned to Bodedern Athletic early on in the season, having made a ridiculous contribution, in terms of goals and assists for Dan Jones side first.

Their second top scorer (and in that case current top scorer) is midfielder/winger Tudur Williams. He returned to Cae Mwd from Llanerchymedd in the summer and has picked up nine goals so far.

In third is forward/winger Jerome Sillence with eight goals. He hit 12 for title-winning Bryngwran (now Trearddur Bay) Bulls last season and has now returned to play there as of today.
