AFE’s Stars of 2021: Tom Hughes (Bethesda Athletic)

ANOTHER one of Bethesda Athletic’s top young talents who undoubtedly deserves his place on this list of players.

Pesda are currently top of the North Wales Coast West Division One table and are the top scorers in tier five too with 79 goals scored in just 19 matches to date.

Manager Mark Hughes has once again put his faith in young players, much like he did when his young Mynydd Tigers side won the Anglesey League back in 2017/18.

It’s hard to believe that he is just 17 years old as he has been brilliant so far in his first season of senior football.

Hughes has netted 12 goals in just 16 matches so far. 10 of those goals have come in 13 appearances in the league.

One of the particular highlights of his campaign to date came when he scored a double in a dramatic 5-4 win at Bodorgan, including a last minute winner.

He’s yet another top promising player current playing in tier five!
