Happy 23rd birthday to the talented Shaun Cavanagh

Shaun Cavanagh hopes 2021 brings him a new, exciting and rewarding football adventure.

The versatile player, who turns 23 today, signed for Cymru North champions Prestatyn Town in June, but due to the coronavirus pandemic all but wiping out North Wales football over the past nine months, he did not kick a ball for the Seasiders.

Shaun has now left the club and cannot sign for anyone else until the January transfer window opens.

Someone of his proven ability should have no problem getting fixed up.

Born on December 18, 1997, Shaun made his senior debut at Prestatyn as a Bangor City player six years ago.

He came on as a late substitute in a 1-0 Word Cup defeat at Bastion Gardens on September 23, 2014, at the age of 16.

Shaun 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.

He joined Llandudno at the start of 2017-18, but by January 2018 had moved on to Cymru Alliance high-flyers Caernarfon Town, becoming Sean Eardley’s second signing at The Oval.

The season ended in joy for Shaun and his team-mates as the Cofis landed the Cymru Alliance League title to secure a much-awaited return to the Welsh Premier.

However, first-team chances had been limited for the Canaries and in 2018-19 Shaun signed for Porthmadog, where he finished top-scorer with 12 goals in 22 starts as the Traeth men finished third in the Cymru Alliance.

Shaun rejoined now Welsh Premier club Caernarfon in 2019-20, 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 Prestatyn.

The 23-year-old can play up front or in midfield, has a keen eye for goal and plenty of pace to play in wide positions.

We wish Shaun the best of luck in 2021 and hope he has a fantastic birthday today. All the best.
