As a junior, Sion played for famous Bangor area junior side Penrhosgarnedd.

In his teens, he won the North Wales Coast Junior Cup under the management of Martin Jones, whose son Corey was also in the side.

Sion then went on to play for Bangor City Reserves in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons.

The 33-year-old attacking midfielder/striker is the Seasiders’ record marksman in the WPL, having netted 27 goals in 80 starts.

He now rejoins tier 2 Cymru North outfit Llandudno from Aberystwyth Town.

Williams joined the Seasiders ahead of the club’s debut 2015/16 term in the WPL and scored 16 times in 32 appearances.

Between 2005-11, Williams made 40 Football League appearances for Wrexham.

Williams has represented Wales at under-17, U-19 and U-21, as well as semi-pro, level.

On returning to Llandudno, Williams said: “I’m really looking forward to coming back and putting that black and white shirt back on. I felt there’s a bit of unfinished business with how things were left last time, so I’m glad to be given the opportunity to return.

“The squad feels really strong and hopefully I and the squad can hit the ground running from the off.

“Finally I’m also looking forward to working with Eards (Sean Eardley) as manager now, with his passion and enthusiasm to win key for me to come back, and hopefully I can repay that faith to him throughout the season.

Nathan Williams (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Williams joins the Amateurs as a free agent following the folding of Llandudno Athletic last year.

Scored twice on his debut for the club in a recent friendly.

New Amateurs management team Carl Nichols and Steve Montgomery are delighted to have him on board.

Aaron Davies-Thomas (Nantlle Vale to Mynydd Llandegai)

New arrival at Mynydd Llandegai has spent the last three years with Nantlle Vale, competing in tier three Welsh Alliance League Division One, having previously played for Caernarfon Town.

Mynydd manager Huw Davies said: “He’s a player I’ve admired for a while and it’s great to finally sign him. He’s a really talented striker who I’m sure will score a lot of goals for the club as we begin a new chapter in Tier 4.”

Sam Gregson (Llangoed to Bodedern Athletic)

Highly-rated young midfielder is Ricky Williams’ latest signing for Bodedern.

Sam was impressive for Llangoed in the 2019-20 season.

Ricky said: ”Sam is someone I’d heard a lot about the last 18 months and we found out ourselves how good he was when we entertained Llangoed at the start of pre-season.

“He’s only 17 but plays like a player that’s way beyond his years.

“A centre midfielder that has it all, quick, athletic, can put his foot in and can pick a pass, his best attribute is probably his breaking into the box and scoring as we’ve seen in pre season. Sam is a welcome addition to a very strong squad.”

Tristan Jones (Llandudno to Llandudno Amateurs)

The Amateurs had struggled for a goalkeeper all pre-season with the 2019-20 glovesmen either injured or unavailable due to work.

Tristan made the decision last week to join the Amateurs from Llandudno FC. Management are confident he will be an important player this season.

Jacob Wise (Cefn Druids to Prestatyn Town)

Giant central defender who impressed at times in the Cymru Premier with Cefn Druids last season.

Made his mark with a fantastic volleyed goal against Penybont.

Has also represented Holywell Town and FC Nomads.

Sam Maddock (Penrhyn Bay Dragons to Llandudno Amateurs)

Maddock has rejoined the Amateurs from Penrhyn Bay Dragons.

When the new management came to the club, Sam was really keen to get back on board.

The new signing is a towering and powerful centre half who can put a good performance in further forward when needed. An excellent recapture for the club.

Callum Roberts (to Prestatyn Town)

Former Rhyl player who can be effective in central midfield or in the number 10 position.

Tayo Lundstram (to Llandudno Amateurs)

After a few years out of the game Tayo was persuaded by the new management of Steve Montgomery and Carl Nichols to get his boots out and step back on the pitch.

Tayo is a clever and creative player who can be a nightmare for opposition defenders when he finds his fitness.

Tom Reilly (to Prestatyn Town)

Central midfielder formerly with Cefn Druids.

Other ex-clubs include Eskilstuna City of Sweden and Accington Stanley. where he represented the under-18 side.

Brad Roberts (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Another young talent, Brad trained with the Amateurs during the last cancelled season and showed straight away he could hold his own.

Brad has got excellent quick feet and will continue to grow as a player week by week as he gains confidence. A versatile player, which is a huge bonus for the club.

Sam Duffy (to Prestatyn Town)

Made his debut for Prestatyn’s first team as a 16-year-old in 2018.

Recommits to the club he has remained a part of through thick and thin.

Once scored six goals in an appearance for the reserves.

Shay Oldham (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Another fantastic young prospect who also trained with the Amateurs last season and instantly displayed great quality for a young man.

Shay is extremely comfortable playing anywhere across the back four or in midfield.

Ryan Roberts (Holywell Town to CPD Y Rhyl 1879)

Goalkeeper Roberts returns to Belle Vue having been with Holywell Town for a short spell.

Has also turned out for Prestatyn Town, where he played a vital role in winning the Cymru Alliance, Llandudno, Conwy Borough and Abergele Town.

Aled Hughes (Clwb Cymric to Nantlle Vale)

Hughes rejoins tier 3 Ardal North West Nantlle Vale from Clwb Cymric, Cardiff.

Vale joint-manager Sion Eifion said: “We’re all delighted that Aled has re-joined the club for the upcoming season. Aled is a natural leader who will add experience to our side.”

Sol Pita (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Youngster who has easily been the Amateurs’ best player this pre-season.

Sol has energy and pace to burn and will frighten full-backs with his pace. He has taken to senior football extremely well and has helped himself to a handful of goals and assists for the club already.

Mathew Beach (CPD Y Rhyl 1879 to Rhuddlan Town)

A key man in Rhuddlan’s 2019-20 Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division title-winning side returns to the club after a short spell away.

Beach signed for new team CPD Y Rhyl 1879 in August 2020, but the midfield goal-getter is now back at Rhuddlan.

It is a welcome boost for Town manager Kieren Evans, who has been keen to attract more new faces ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

Ben Seager (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Also commits to the Amateurs after the folding of Llandudno Athletic last year.

Ben needs no introduction. He’s fully committed to the cause, loves a tackle and is a fiery character. A versatile player and gives 100% in any position he’s asked to play.

With not much game time for a couple of seasons the club are confident Ben will find his feet quickly and be an important player.

Ryan Williams (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Been out of the game for a while, but is working hard on his fitness. Ryan is a solid tackler who always gives 100%. He is comfortable and confident with the ball at his feet.

Ryan can operate at either full-back or in centre-mid.
