Chirk Town have signed two brothers who can only vastly strengthen their squad ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
Nicky Williams and Josh Williams are new additions for the tier 4 North East Wales League Premier Division club.
And last season’s champions of the former tier 5 North East Wales League are looking to add more quality to the ranks before the 2021-22 term kicks off on July 3.
Out-and-out striker Nicky has signed from Queen’s Park, while Josh was last at Plas Madoc.
Taverners manager Chris Hughes is delighted at securing both lads.
Nicky is particularly well-known for his prolific goal-scoring feats over the years.
He first truly made his mark back in 2011-12 when he was top scorer for an FC Cefn side which won the Welsh National League Premier Division title.
Next came a move to Acrefair in 2012-13 before joining then reigning Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) Premier champions Chirk AAA the following season.
He helped Chirk reach the 2013-14 FAW Trophy Final, where the Colliers lost 3-2 to Llanrug United.
The 2014-15 season brought an exciting new chapter for Nicky when he put pen to paper for newly-formed Cefn Albion.
The team won four trophies, including the North East Wales League title, and Williams amassed 59 goals in all competitions.
More success followed in 2015-16 as Williams was in the Albion squad which scooped the WNL Division One title at the first attempt.
Williams returned to Chirk AAA in 2016-17 and enjoyed more glory as the WNL Premier outfit beat Penlan Club 2-1 in the FAW Trophy Final.
In 2017-18, Williams joined new side Plas Madoc, bagging in excess of 50 goals as the Wrexham team were crowned North East Wales League champions. He scored TEN goals in one match.
Josh Williams is an attacking midfielder who can be a threat down both flanks
Just like he had done previously with Cefn, Williams made it back-to-back titles with Plas as they finished top of WNL Division One in 2018-19.
He remained with Madoc during the curtailed 2019-20 season before the club disbanded.
Last season he faced another challenge with FC Queen’s Park, but the campaign never got started due to Covid-19
Josh Williams is an attacking midfielder who can also operate down the flanks.
While not as prolific a goal-getter as his brother, he certainly knows how to find the back of the net.
