Another dozen North Wales football signings (316-327)

Goalkeeper Louis Williams has left Llanberis to join Llandudno Albion

Louis Williams (Llanberis to Llandudno Albion)

Top-class keeper Williams has left Llanberis after nine years and more than 400 first-team appearances.

The tremendous shot-stopper has signed for tier 3 club Llandudno Albion, who were FAW Trophy finalists last season but never got to play the showpiece game due to Covid-19.

Meddai CPD Llanberis: “Pob lwc i Louis Williams sydd yn gadael y clwb ar ôl 9 mlynedd heddiw. Y mae wedi gwneud dros 400 o ymddangosiadau i’r Darans yn ystod ei amser yma.

“Arwyddodd Louis nol yn nhymor 2011/12 pan gawsom ddyrchafiad o ail adran Undebol Y Gogledd. Ers sawl blwyddyn mae wedi bod yn un o’r goreuon yn ei safle yn y drydedd Haen yn Ogledd Cymru.

“Louis joined from Glantraeth back in 2011/12 when we were promoted from the Welsh Alliance Division 2.

“He’s been consistently one of the best goalkeepers in the third tier for a number of years. We’ve lost count how many penalties he’s saved over the years at critical times in games.”

Ste Orsler (New Brighton to Brymbo)

Transition from a skilful wide man into a solid central midfielder has been seamless.

Brymbo manager Dave Roberts said: “Ste is an experienced player at this level and had many offers from Tier 3 clubs. He has tremendous leadership skills.”

Ben Humphreys (to Chirk AAA)

Defender returns to the game after several seasons out.

Will give Chirk’s young reserve squad that extra experience for their quest for success in the newly-formed FAW Reserve League.

Ant Sarnowski (Denbigh Town to Brymbo)

Great shot-stopper whose other former clubs include Bangor City and Rhyl.

Steelmen boss Dave Roberts said: “For such a young goalkeeper, Ant has bags of experience playing at a high standard and he’s a top keeper.”

Oliver Lewis (Coedpoeth United to Chirk AAA)

Pacy, athletic striker who is expected to shine at Holyhead Road.

Sam Jones (New Brighton Villa to Brymbo)

Strong and powerful centre-half will add steel to Brymbo’s defence.

Dave Roberts said: “An absolute power house and a very good ball player.

“I’d argue with anybody who tells me he wasn’t the best centre-back in tier 4 last year. I’ve every confidence that he’ll be up there with the best in Tier 3 this season.”

Cameron Roberts (Chirk Town to Chirk AAA)

Gifted young midfielder who starred for Chirk Town in their title-winning 2019-20 season in the North East Wales League.

Joe Humphries (Chester FC to Brymbo)

Former Chester FC academy player Joe Humphries.lands at The Crick.

Brymbo manager Dave Roberts is thrilled with the signing, that came courtesy of Reserve team manager Craig Ellison.

“Joe is an exciting young talent and has shown excellent ability in training so far,” said Roberts.

“He’s a player we have very high hopes for and has a maturity beyond his years, looks very comfortable on the ball and has an eye for a killer pass and a goal. He gives the team another string to our bow and is already settling.”

Tom McAndrew (Overton to Chirk AAA)

Young goalkeeper joins the Colliers with aspirations to make his mark with the first team.

Charlie Orsler (Nantwich Town to Brymbo)

Exciting young attacking midfielder Orsler arrives at Brymbo from Nantwich Town.

A Wrexham native, Charlie has a full football scholarship in America and has signed for the Steelmen for the 2020/21 season.

“Charlie is a young up and coming player with huge potential coming in from Nantwich Town,” said Brymbo chief Dave Roberts.

“The younger brother of Ste raised a few eyebrows from coaches and players alike with his quality on his first outing in training.

“An unknown quantity to many but has all the attributes to succeed at this level and I’m sure he will go on to great things with the club. A clean striker of the ball with an eye for a killer pass.”

Alex Sheriff (Lex XI to Brymbo)

Alex is a local lad from Brymbo and is an exciting young addition to the squad who will be working with Reserves manager Craig Ellison.

Ellison has been delighted with what he has seen so far in training.

The Reserves boss said: “Alex is a young lad who’s come into pre-season and really shown what he’s about. He is exactly what we’re looking for at the club in terms of young local talent who have the potential to develop over the coming season and years.

“He has an eye for goal and a great deal of skill. He’s shown in the short time he’s been at training that he is technically very good and is quick with the ball at his feet.

We’re very excited as a club that Alex has chosen to join us and hope that he can continue his development over the coming months and season.”

Lee Stokes (Llandudno Athletic to Llandudno Albion)

Was a consistent goalscorer for Llandudno Athletic last season, but the club’s decision to fold left the talented Stokes without a team.

Naturally a left-back/wing-back, Stokes was used more as an attacker by Athletic boss Rhys Lane, who rates him extremely highly.

Should be a good asset to Albion, who will play in tier 3 Ardal North West in 2020-21.
