Eight more top North Wales football signings (453-460)

Danny Barlow (to Brymbo)

Former Hawarden Rangers, Mold Alex, Brickfield Rangers and FC Nomads goalscorer Danny Barlow is the latest arrival at The Crick.

Brymbo manager Dave Roberts said: “Barlow is a player I have encountered many times over the years and somebody I really enjoy working with.

“Going all the way back to my playing days he has scored goals wherever he’s been, a nightmare to play against but a dream to play with. Has bags of quality and knows where the net is, isn’t shy of putting the hard graft in and putting the defenders under pressure.

“I’m excited for Barlow to be here and I can’t wait for him to start scoring goals for The Steelmen.”

Gwynfor Owen (Trearddur Bay Bulls to Cemaes Bay)

Strong forward with plenty of goals in him, a great addition to the Cemaes squad for the 2020-21 season.

Owen notched 15 goals for Trearddur Bay in the Gwynedd League last term.

Paul Williams (to Llandyrnog United)

Llandyrnog are delighted to welcome back Paul Williams.

The new signing has been a big part of the Vale of Clwyd club over the years, and after an injury set back and a year out of the game, the hard working striker returns to his spiritual home of Cae Nant.

Kieran Edwards (Llandudno to Conwy Borough)

Borough are delighted to confirm that Kieran Edwards has signed for the club from Llandudno FC.

Defender Edwards has shown a lot of promise through his performances with the Llandudno development squad.

Gwion Owen (Ruthin Town to Aberystwyth Town)

Energetic midfielder Owen, 25, steps up to the Cymru Premier after an impressive trial period at Park Avenue.

He reunites with former Ruthin team-mate Ilan Hughes in Gavin Allen’s squad.

Welsh-speaking Gwion hails from Llannefydd, and has impressed in the JD Cymru North with many standout performances since joining Ruthin in 2017.

He said: “I can’t wait to start playing in the Cymru Premier and for Aber. It’s a step up for me but I’m ready for the challenge to push myself and play at the highest level possible. I had a good chat with Gav about the way he wants to play, and I thought it suited my style of play.

“He said that the club is on the up and told me about his plans to change the club going forward. I also spoke to Ilan (Hughes) and he only had great things to say about the club.

“I hope to bring energy to the team and use my versatility by playing in different positions if needed. As for my ambitions: everyone wants to finish in the top 6 but hopefully we can aim to finish higher!”

Deian Lloyd Williams (to Llandyrnog United)

Williams is possibly better recognised in the area for his rugby, but the Llandyrnog faithful are no strangers to the Clawddnewydd FC utility man’s exploits in summer league, and will welcome the new man with open arms.

Alistair Gibson (Coedpoeth United to Llay Welfare)

Pacy front man who was with Gresford Athletic and Coedpoeth United last season

Alistair was previously with Acton and Rhostyllen, before that spending seven years at Gresford.

He has also played for Welfare in the past.

Gibson is an extremely talented attacker who notched 13 league goals in all last term.

Steven Hewitt (Hume City to Aberystwyth Town)

Ex-Bangor City midfield star Hewitt, 26, joins Aberystwyth from Australian club Hume City FC of the National Premier Leagues Victoria.

Manchester-born Hewitt began his career with the youth teams of Blackburn Rovers and Stockport County before becoming a scholar at Burnley FC in 2010.

He signed his first professional contract in October 2011, a two-and-a-half-year deal to remain at Turf Moor and made his professional debut for the club in March 2012, coming on as a substitute for Charlie Austin in a 1-0 win v Brighton & Hove Albion.

Loan spells at Alfreton Town and Southport followed where he made 22 appearances, scoring twice before leaving The Clarets at the end of his contract. Short spells at Chester and Southport followed, before Hewitt joined Accrington Stanley on a one-year contract in July 2016.

Steven made the switch to Welsh football in July 2017 when he joined Gary Taylor-Fletcher’s Bangor City team who finished runners-up to The New Saints.

He then made the move Down Under and spent a year with National Premier Leagues Victoria side Hume City.
