NORTH Wales Coast West Premier side (tier 4) Gwalchmai have been given a triple boost of good news today.

The club have had a mixed bag of results in the Premier Division so far, winning just 5 of their 17 league matches.

But, that could very well be set to change in the second half of the 21/22 campaign as the club announce some great news.

Firstly, young starlet Connor Owen will be remaining at the club for the rest of this season at least – despite interest from several other clubs.

Not many players could thrive in tier four aged just 16 years old but he has been doing just that with a string of fine performances.

Owen began to shine for his club in pre-season, scoring a few goals and proving that he may just be one to watch when the 21/22 season got underway.

The promising attacker’s first official goal for Gwalch came in a 5-2 FAW Amateur Trophy win at tier four strugglers Gaerwen.

A few weeks later, Owen was on target again, this time in the league in a 6-2 victory at home against Pentraeth.

All in all, in what is his first season in senior football, the tricky attacker has scored 9 goals in 20 appearances for Gwalch this season and has also provided two assists.

Gwalchmai today revealed that Owen was ‘very happy’ at the club and will be going nowhere this month.

In further good news for the club, prolific forward Marc Griffiths has returned to the squad to bolster its ranks.

Aka ‘Sgryff’, the striker has been a top, top player for the club in the past and has smashed in many goals in the black and white colours of the club down the years.

He scored 30 goals for Gwalch back in the 2017/18 season and now returns to the club after some time away from the game.

Last but not least for Gwalchmai is the exciting news that Luke Waller has signed for the team, making the move from Llangefni Town Reserves.

Back in the 2019/20 season, the 20-year-old winger broke into Llangefni Town’s first team after a brilliant spell with the reserves which saw him score 6 goals.

After suffering an injury in pre-season, he’ll now be looking to bounce back as he teams up once again with his former reserves manager Gafyn Buckland at Gwalchmai.
