New signings to watch out for in 21/22: Jac Thomas (Amlwch Town)

WHEN you talk about prolific strikers on Anglesey over the past few seasons, few have been more consistent than Jac Thomas whilst at Bro Goronwy. And he’s continued that form in friendlies with current club Amlwch Town since switching over in 2020.

Still only 22 years old, striker Thomas has been banging in the goals from his very first season in senior football back in 2015/16, when he managed 22 goals in just 24 matches.

21/22 will be the first time he’s played for anyone else other than Bro. With the Moelfre-based outfit folded now, it was time for Thomas to move on and I have no doubt he will smash it in the North Wales Coast West Premier (tier four) with the Blues next season.

His goal-scoring record over the years has been nothing short of sensational – he has never failed to score at least 16 goals in any campaign and, just last season, he surpassed the 100 goals mark for his career ending the season with 21 goals in 21 matches in the Gwynedd League competitions.

His stats for Bro Goronwy over the years are as follows:

2015/16: 22 goals in 24 appearances
2016/17: 16 goals in 31 appearances
2017/18: 21 goals in 24 appearances
2018/19: 25 goals in 27 appearances
2019/20: 21 goals in 21 appearances.
TOTAL: 105 goals in 127 appearances

An absolute goal machine would be the best, and probably only, way to describe Thomas.

At Lon Bach, he has already shown fantastic promise within Chris Byast’s side. He scored plenty of goals in friendlies last season and bagged a hat-trick just last Saturday in the club’s 4-2 win at Pentraeth.

The ball’s in the back of the net again from Thomas against Llangoed in 2020.

He’s one of the most composed and deadliest finishers around and still has so much more to give in his playing career to come.

Amlwch already had one great striker in their ranks in the form of Ryan Rowlands, now they have two. The pair of them will go a long way towards deciding where this exciting team will finish in the inaugural North Wales Coast West Premier come the end of next season.
