BETHESDA Athletic have an endless stream of top young talent on their books at this moment in time and this young man is one of the best.

Pesda are currently second in the North Wales Coast West Division One table behind Llanerchymedd.

They are also the team with the most goals scored in the league with an incredible 64 goals netted in just 14 league outings.

Many a player has stood out so far but one to keep an eye on in this team is 16-year-old Noa Hughes.

Just days after turning 16 in August, he was introduced to the men’s game in Athletic’s tier five clash v fellow title-chasers Caergybi and scored as they game ended 1-1. He had scored just 40mins into his senior career.

And that was far from the end of it for Noa, who is the son of club manager Mark Hughes. His brothers Osian, 20, and Daniel, 17, also play for Athletic although Daniel has been out of action so far this season due to a long-term injury.

Following a debut goal for Pesda, Noa then scored a further two goals just three days later in a 6-2 win at Bontnewydd.

This was followed by a goal and an assist in the highly-impressive 6-2 win at Talysarn Celts and another goal in a 6-0 victory over Cefni.

His latest stunning performance for the club came in their 8-1 demolition at Y Fali, netting a brace.

Noa, who can play comfortably in midfield and in attack, has now racked up 7 goals in as many matches since taking on senior football for the first time back in August.

He is already leaving to be a phenomenal asset to Bethesda Athletic who will be hoping for title glory/promotion come the end of this season.
