Second left in the front row is Howie Farrell, who went on to become an excellent referee. Picture: MARK JONES

Midfield ace Dale Milne has already talked about his football career to Grassroots North Wales.


Now he chooses his All-time Prestatyn Town XI. Magnificent stuff!

GOALKEEPER

John Clague

Just a beast of a man and bravery to match.

DEFENDERS

Ian (Lewi) Lewis

Ian wasn’t the greatest I’ve ever seen but he would give 200% in every game he played.

Geraint Hughes

Great player, fit as a fiddle and unbelievable ball winner, would go through walls.

Ian Grimes

He was just fantastic. Should have played at a much higher level but loved the club.

Steve Rees

Another fantastic player, good on the ground as well as in the air. Again worthy of a higher standard.

MIDFIELD

Gwyn (Gonzo) Jones

Unbelievable on the ball, always seemed to have time on the ball. Could land a ball on a sixpence from 40 yards.

Johnny Parry

Full package footballer, he had the lot.

He was a very special player who I was lucky to play with.

Geraint Jones (Lester)

Another all round footballer who scored so many great goals and just made football look easier than it was.


Always had time for the young lads in the team and helping develop them in their game.

Gary Hayes (Monster)

Fantastic player, great motivator (you never argued back with him).

Had the full package also. Just had a range of passing to match anyone I’ve seen.

STRIKERS

Richie Semple (Tip Toes)

Now this lad could score goals, all types of goals as he had everything…..fast, strong and a good football head on him.

Stuart Hannen


Another man who would run through a wall for the team, score goals that many wouldn’t even think of. Always driving everyone in the team on.

SUBSTITUTES

Gary Twynham

Played all my football from school to Wales teams with Gary.


Probably the best I’ve ever played with.


He only played a few games for Town but my god he was just a different level. He played at a very high standard and did himself proud.

David Hayes

Great footballer. Again I watched his development into the player he became. Loved playing with him as he was just a fantastic footballer.

Mike Parker

Another lad I watched grow into a proper footballer. He is just so good on the ball and could run forever, he has everything.

MANAGER

Eddie Garrett

Manager in the 1990’s. This man was brilliant for Prestatyn Town.

He got them more professional and put the club in a better position in a different level of league while playing some fantastic football.


Loved the game and probably got the Town’s team back on the map.
