Teams you have played for

Bontnewydd rejoice after their 2016 Gwynedd Safeflue Shield success. Goals from Gareth Edwards (2) and Callum McDonald secured a 3-1 win over Aberffraw in the final at The Oval, Caernarfon Town FC

Bontnewydd – this will be my 26th season playing for the club at all age grades.


Centre Half

Most memorable game played in

In Bont’s first season back in senior football in 2004-05 we had to win at home on the last day of the season and did so 4-0 to beat Caernarfon Borough to the Caernarfon and District League title on goal difference.

Biggest highlight of football career so far

Bontnewydd celebrate in 2017 after retaining the Safeflue Shield with a 1-0 win over Llanystumdwy in the final at Nantlle Vale, Morgan Roberts the scorer

Winning the Safelue Shield back to back as player-manager was special.

Best goal scored

A hat-trick away against Llanllyfni back in their Gwynedd League days was special – always a tough place to go.
