VERY FEW players are enjoying a finer season than this young man is already doing this season.

Having joined Llanfairpwll from Llangoed, Finter has been in unstoppable form ever since, even coming back to haunt his former club on two separate occasions.

The 19-year-old attacker first caught the eye whilst playing as a winger for Llangoed Reserves in the Anglesey League back in the 2017/18 season.

After continuing to represent the Tyddyn Paun outfit in the Gwynedd League in 2019/20, he made the switch to Pwll ahead of the club’s 21/22 campaign in the newly-formed North Wales Coast West Division One.

Finter’s a very talented player but few could have predicted just how brilliant he’s been for his side so far this season, helping to carry them into the top four in tier five.

He was off the mark this season with a goal and an assist in a big 3-2 win over title-chasing Bethesda Athletic back on July 15.

Since then, he’s racked up a total of 15 goals in just 11 appearances in the league and also provided 3 assists for his team-mates.

The highlights of Finter’s season to date included scoring a brace in a 3-1 at former club Llangoed before scoring another double against them just a week later in a dramatic 4-3 win over the same club at Maes Eilian.

In that encounter, played on August 27, Finter headed home a last-gasp header to secure a huge 3 points for Pwll over a side who have seemingly become their bitter rivals.

Finter’s importance to the club was again highlighted just last weekend as he scored both goals in a closely-fought 2-0 win at Bodorgan.

He’s a player that’s oozing confidence at this moment in time and it’s great to see. A very bright future lays ahead for the player should he continue in this rich vein of form with a Pwll side who are real dark horses in tier five this season.
