Wide-midfield operator Brown is having a fantastic first season at the Essity Stadium.
This dead-ball specialist, who signed from Chester last summer and was a part of the Manchester City Academy from the ages of 12-16, has shone for Flint throughout the campaign, scoring 10 goals from 30 appearances.
He has also provided the highest number of assists for the first team – 12 – and earned himself five man of the match awards.

Gruffydd John (Porthmadog to Caernarfon Town)

This season has brought a whole new test for the versatile Gruff as he steps up to Welsh Premier level for the first time.
And so far he has passed with flying colours, featuring in 26 matches and grabbing himself a couple of goals.
Gruff arrived at The Oval last summer from Porthmadog, having joined the Traeth club from Llanrug United back in 2012.
A genuine utility player, he has proved himself to be equally at home anywhere along the back four or in midfield.

Jack Kenny (Cefn Druids to Prestatyn Town)

Kenny has made a tremendous return to Prestatyn this season with 17 goals in all competitions including the winner in the Welsh Cup quarter-final against Flint Town United.
Having split last season between spells at Connah’s Quay Nomads and Cefn Druids, Kenny had previously played in the Welsh Premier at both Rhyl and Prestatyn Town.
He was also a key member of Prestatyn’s 2016/17 Cymru Alliance title-winning side and is well on course for a repeat success.

Shaun Cavanagh (Caernarfon Town to Porthmadog)

His return to Porthmadog in January has proved highly profitable, yielding six goals from four appearances including a double in an excellent 2-2 draw at runaway Cymru North leaders Prestatyn.
Port are facing a relegation battle, but the goals of Cavanagh have given them some hope of an escape.
Shaun returned to Port from Caernarfon Town after leaving the Traeth in the summer of 2019.
Leading scorer at Port in 2018/19, he helped the club finish third in the Huws Gray Alliance.

Shaun Lock (Menai Bridge Tigers to Bangor 1876)

Shaun Lock

Left-back Lock has played a big role in Bangor 1876’s outstanding first season in football.
One of his best performances came in the NWCFA Junior Cup quarter-final at Llysfaen, where his long throws resulted in three goals before he scored a left-foot screamer himself to complete a 5-0 victory.
A Gwynedd League championship and Cwpan Gwynedd winner with Menai Bridge last season, Shaun has also had spells with Beaumaris, Bethesda Athletic, Gaerwen and Glantraeth, winning a Welsh Alliance League Division One championship medal with the latter in 2016-17.

Robert Jones (Llannerchymedd to Holyhead Hotspur)

Rejoined Hotspur this season and has netted an outstanding 17 goals as Darren Garmey’s side chase the Welsh Alliance Division One title.
Jones was top-scorer last season for Llannerchymedd with 18 goals for the Welsh Alliance Division Two outfit and this stood him in good stead for a great campaign at the higher level with Hotspur.

Ceri Slaney (Caernarfon Town to Amlwch Town)

Ceri Slaney has shone for Amlwch

Was one of a number of new signings brought in by Amlwch this season and has performed really well for the Anglesey team in North Wales League Division Two.
Former Caernarfon Town player Ceri scored a couple of goals on her second appearance for Amlwch, but then needed a spell out following an operation.
She has been consistent since her return to the team and is on seven goals for the campaign for the Division Two leaders.
Ceri was a regular in the Ynys Môn women’s team which reached the Inter-Island Games final last year.

Tom Freeman (Gresford Athletic to Chirk Town)


With him having played at Cymru Alliance level, North East Wales League newcomers Chirk Town were understandably delighted to get Freeman on board for the 2019-20 campaign.
And what a success story he has been, the attacking midfielder currently sitting top of the league’s goal chart with 17.
The Taverners have a great chance of winning the title and Freeman is key to their hopes.

Leo Smith (Wrexham to Caernarfon Town)

The gifted midfielder has produced numerous great displays for Caernarfon since his move became permanent at the start of the season.
Smith had a successful loan period at The Oval last term, and he has continued to improve, also earning himself a place in the Wales C squad.
He enjoyed an encouraging 2016/17 debut season at Wrexham, signing a pro contract and winning Young Player of the Year, but only made seven appearances the following campaign and did not figure for the first team at all last term, spending time on loan at Llandudno and Caernarfon.

Jordan Davies (to Prestatyn Town)

Landed back at Prestatyn last summer and has been his usual dynamic self, bagging 16 goals as the Seasiders run away with the Cymru North title.
Davies initially signed for Town in 2014/15, but despite impressing up front, the team were still relegated from the Welsh Premier League.
Two years later, Davies finished up Cymru Alliance League top goalscorer in Prestatyn’s 2016-17 title-winning promotion campaign – netting 27 goals in just 24 appearances.
He is now well on course for another championship winners’ medal and a return to the top-flight.
