THE transfer merry-go-round is going on and on in North Wales.

Some fantastic moves have been made and we’ll be bringing you the lowdown on some of the new faces we think will make a difference at their new clubs in the upcoming season.

First off, let’s look at a potentially great signing for North Wales Coast West Premier club Glantraeth.

The 23-year-old has previously played for the likes of Pentraeth (both the first team in the Welsh Alliance and the Reserves in the Anglesey League) and Gaerwen.

In 2019/20, he was Pentraeth Reserves’ top scorer with eight goals in a season cut short by the Coronavirus pandemic. Now he is reunited with former Reserves coach Paul Matier who is also at Glantraeth.

Last season, Owen was one of the top scorers in the FAW Reserves League when playing for Llangefni Town’s Reserves team.

He scored 15 goals in just 18 league appearances for the club and also made one appearance at JD Cymru North (tier two) level for the first team.

A player who guarantees goals for a Glan side who are very much building a strong team for the upcoming Premier season.

It will be interesting to see how they and Owen develop in 22/23.
