PICTURE by Wynne Evans shows Williams in action for CPD Y Fali.
OVER the years, the now extinct Anglesey League has had many an unsung hero play within it. Paul Williams has been one of those.
One of my many ‘Stars of the 2019/20’ for his efforts with CPD Y Fali last season, the versatile player has now been snapped up by fellow North Wales Coast West Division One side Holyhead Town.
Williams has been a loyal servant to Dan Jones’ Fali (previously Valley Athletic) side in years gone by becoming one of the most important and most reliable names on the team-sheet in the process.
He was also part of the Valley side who went unbeaten throughout 2013/14 to win their respective league. Also part of that side were his new Holyhead Town team-mates; Charlie Diamond and Tony Meyer.
He also played a key role in 2016/17, when Valley won the Elias Cup (below).
The hard-working Williams has also been known to pop up with plenty of goals for Fali previously – hitting 12 back in 2018/19 and six last season as the club finished fifth in the last-ever Anglesey League season before it was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.
The player has also shown fantastic versatility down the years, playing – and impressing – everywhere from full-back to central midfielder and also turned out for the likes of Tyn-y-gongl-based Treetops and Dreigiau Pentraeth in the Sunday League once upon a time too.
When many others left the club during the course of the season, he stayed and kept fighting and I’m sure that meant a lot to all involved at Fali.
Now though, Williams has swapped Cae Mwd for Millbank with the Harbourmen who he will no doubt still prove to be a key player for in months to come.
I’ve said it for awhile now – he’d be an asset to any team at tier five level and I’m sure that he’ll prove that for David Jones and Stephen Owen’s side in 21/22.
