Grassroots North Wales is delighted to announce the competition to crown Anglesey senior football’s highest goalscorer is back.
The Bob Brodie Trophy has been played for since 2011/12 and is named in honour of a much-loved former player and manager who lived on the island.
With no competitive football below tier 1 in 2020-21 due to Covid restrictions, the last Bob Brodie Trophy was won in 2019-20 – a season cut short by coronavirus – by Cemaes Bay marksman Steven Whittaker.
What lies ahead in 2021-22 no-one knows, but for now our football is back and players performing in the tier 2 Cymru North, tier 4 North Wales Coast West Premier Division, tier 5 North Wales Coast West Division One and reserves leagues are all eligible to scoop the Brodie Trophy.
Marc Evans of Bodedern Athletic is the early leader of the goalscorers’ table, having netted 12 goals in just five matches, but what a start to the season for Caergybi’s young talent Louis Chapman – 10 in four matches.
