AFE’s Stars of the 2019/20 season: Llyr Pennant (Nefyn United)

A DEFENSIVE rock for Nefyn over the years who was once again pivotal last season and provided some memorable moments too.

Along with some great performances for the club in the Gwynedd League – in which they finished league runners-up – Pennant proved to be a star in the club’s FAW Trophy run.

The centre back scored a 115th minute winner in extra time of the second round win over Penmaenmawr Phoenix (3-2) and then the heroics continued with a 107th minute winner away at Llannefydd (again 3-2) in the third round of the competition. Both were huge wins against higher league opposition and Pennant proved to be the star of both.

A player who’s been with the Penllyn club for a number of seasons now and is unsurprisingly held in high regard by all involved there. He is one of the best defenders around in that area and beyond.
