AFE’s Stars of the 2019/20 season: Sion Emlyn Davies (Llanfairpwll/Llangefni Town Res)

PICTURE by Llangefni Town FC.

A PLAYER who first impressed on the local football scene with Llanfairpwll when he was just 16 and the club were playing in the Welsh Alliance.

Davies, who can play anywhere across the back line (although predominantly a full-back in his Llanfair days), really began to showcase what he could do for the club – even more so when they eventually dropped down to the Anglesey League.

An energetic and hard-working defender, he quickly became a key part of Llanfair’s side that season and so it was no surprise to see title-chasers Bryngwran (now Trearddur Bay) Bulls swoop into sign him.

But, after game time being limited there, Davies would return to Llanfair where his brother Owain (also featured in this series) broke through into the first team last season at just 16 years old.

Having spent half of last season with Llanfair, 20-year-old Davies made the switch to Llangefni Town Reserves. He’s since gone on to surely become one of the first names on the team sheet for Gafyn Buckland’s side.

The defender, said to have had a ‘very positive influence’ on that squad, was a huge part of the side that reached its first cup final (LockStock Fireworks Challenge Cup) last season (although it was unfortunately never played due to Covid-19).

But his importance to the side was highlighted when he was appointed club captain recently. And he has continued his great form in recent friendlies too – even scoring a goal against Glantraeth.

A great lad and a great young entrepreneur too – being one half of the up and coming Arfordir clothing brand. Davies is also a player for the Bangor Uni ‘Cymric’ side, run by the Welsh-speaking students Union.
