Prestatyn Town’s exciting new signing will have good memories of the Motion Finance Stadium.
Shaun Cavanagh, who joins the Seasiders today, scored twice on his visit to Bastion Gardens last season to ensure his struggling Porthmadog side gained an impressive 2-2 draw against the Cymru North champions.
And Cavanagh also made his senior debut at Prestatyn as a Bangor City player six years ago.
Born on December 18, 1987, Cavanagh began his senior career at Bangor in 2014-15.
Cavanagh made his senior debut for City as a late substitute in a 1-0 Word Cup defeat at Prestatyn Town on September 23, 2014, at the age of 16.
He appeared in 34 first-team games for Bangor, 26 of them as a substitute, and scored four goals.
His best spell came in 2015-16, when he made eight starts for the firsts having impressed in the WPL Development League.
One of his best Citizens moments came in a Boxing Day derby in 2016-17 when he scored a late winner after coming on as sub in a 2-1 victory over Llandudno.
Cavanagh joined Llandudno in 2017-18, but by January 2018 he had moved on to Cymru Alliance high-flyers Caernarfon Town, becoming Sean Eardley’s second signing at The Oval.
First-team chances were limited for the Canaries and in 2018-19 he signed for Porthmadog, where he finished top-scorer with 12 goals in 22 starts as the Traeth men finished third in the Cymru Alliance.
Cavanagh rejoined Welsh Premier club Caernarfon last season, but was back at Porthmadog in January 2020 where he again made a big impact, scoring six times in four matches, including a cracking double in a 2-2 draw at Cymru North champions Prestatyn.
The 22-year-old can play up front or in midfield, has a keen eye for goal and plenty of pace to play in wide positions.
