Returns to Valley where he netted an impressive 25 goals in 2015/16.

Won the Anglesey League title with Bryngwran Bulls last season, netting 13 goals.

Sillence has also played for Llannerchymedd in the Welsh Alliance. One of the fittest players around with a real eye for goal.

One day, I will get my headline…….Sillence is Goalden

242 Luke McKittrick (Holyhead Town to Caergybi)

Luke McKittrick (stripes) has made a quick return to Caergybi

A quick return to Caergybi for Irishman McKittrick, who earlier this summer had joined Holyhead Town.

Caergybi manager Dale Moffat is delighted to welcome back the tireless midfield talent.

“It is a massive boost to the squad, last season’s players player and managers player returning,” said Dale.

“We were gutted to lose him but appreciated his thoughts (in joining a higher level club).

“After some thought we are glad he has returned to the club. It is a massive boost to our midfield for the new challenge ahead of the Gwynedd League. His head is now fully focused on Caergybi.”

243 Gerson Neto (to Cefn Mawr Rangers)

Good things are expected of Gerson Neto

Gerson signs for his first season in senior football.Last season he played at Rhosddu and also for Cefn Druids Under-16 under Daniel Richards.

Gerson plays with real maturity for a 16 year-old.

244 RICH SANNA (Acton to Mold Alex)

Rich Sanna

Goalkeeper Sanna joins Mold from North East Wales League side Acton where he was a stand out performer last season.

His experience will strengthen Alex’s goalkeeping department for the coming season and he is seen as a great addition to the squad.

245 Max Smith (St Martins Village to Plas Madoc)

Max Smith (centre)

A pacey right back with a great work ethic joins Ryan Roberts’ Welsh National League Premier Division newcomers.

246 Andrew Swarbrick (Denbigh Town to Penycae)

Andrew Swarbrick has proven class

Striker Swarbrick once scored a hat-trick in a Welsh Cup semi-final.

The 30-year-old grabbed a treble as Cymru Alliance underdogs Cefn Druids whipped Welsh Premier favourites Airbus 4-1 to reach the 2011/12 final, where the Ancients lost to TNS.

There is much more to Swarbrick’s career than that, however, as he has been a consistent goalscorer over the years for the likes of Denbigh Town, Chirk AAA, Gresford Athletic and Glynceiriog.

He is also a gifted all-rounder for Chirk Cricket Club.

247 Liam Jones (Caernarfon Town to Llandudno Albion)

Formerly a star stopper for Llandudno Under-19s, Jones was understudy to Alex Ramsay at Caernarfon for two seasons.

Also with Glan Conwy at one time, Jones now looks to make his mark in Welsh Alliance Division One with Albion.

248 Evan Woodall (Cefn Albion to Penycae)

The promising Evan Woodall

Started off at Penycae as an under-16 and then signed for Cefn Druids, where he enjoyed great success in front of goal with the development and reserve teams.

The 19-year-old moved to Cefn Albion at the end of last season, but has now returned to the Riverside.

249 Joe Morgan (to Llandudno Albion)

Former Llandudno stalwart who spent nine years with the club before taking over joint-managership of Llandudno Junction with Darren Jones in 2013.

Morgan is a goalscoring midfielder, strong in the tackle and precise with his passing, but injuries have blighted his career in recent years.

Other clubs he has featured for include Glan Conwy and West Shore.

Now 36, his experience should prove crucial for the Albion.

250 Craig Roberts (to Llandudno Athletic)

I thought at first this was the guy who played Ray Daley in Minder, but no, it’s definitely Craig Roberts

Centre-half Roberts is a former Llandudno Albion player who Athletic brought in early last season but work commitments limited him to just four appearances.

Athletic manager Rhys Lane is hoping Roberts will be more regularly available and make an impact in the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy Premier Division this season.

251 Leighton Kendrick (Chester to Penycae)

Leighton Kendrick

Brother of striker Conner, who has just rejoined Penycae.

Leighton had been with Chester since 2016 and was a regular goalscorer throughout the age groups before being released this summer.

252 Llion Thomas (Ruthin to Llanuwchllyn)

A young, energetic winger who has bags of pace and can cause all sorts off problems in the final third.

Llanuwchllyn’s management are looking forward to seeing him improve and help the team this season in the Welsh National League Premier Division.

253 Gareth Higgins (Penyffordd to Plas Madoc)

After years developing his talents at the highly successful TNS Academy and later playing for Penycae, Jamie comes ‘home’ by rejoining Brickfield Rangers.

256 Lewis Clamp (Chirk AAA to Rhostyllen)

Lewis Clamp is a true class act on the field

One of the key players in Rhostyllen’s rise to prominence in recent years has returned to the club.

Prolific goal-getter Clamp finished last season at Chirk, but the 27-year-old is now back where he made his name.

Class player who can always be relied upon to score goals.

257 Evan Davies (to Cefn Albion)

Young talent Evan Davies

Seventeen-year-old defender Davies has signed for the FAW Trophy holders for the 2019/20 season. Another young local player who has impressed during pre-season.
