Bethesda Athletic have landed a star striker for their end-of-season run-in.

Dean Redmond, 33, has joined Mark Hughes’ North Wales Coast West Division One leaders from Menai Bridge Tigers.

Nicknamed “Curly”, Redmond has netted 18 times in 22 appearances across all competitions this season for the Bridge.

He did not feature in Saturday’s 2-1 North Wales Coast West Premier Division defeat at Llanberis.

After Llannerchymedd’s 5-1 win at Llangoed on Wednesday night, Bethesda lead Division One by six points but nearest challengers Medd and Cemaes Bay both have a number of games in hand.

Division One table up to and including Wednesday, March 30:

Pesda have four league matches remaining having already amassed 116 Division One goals in their 26 outings.

Manager Hughes said: “We’ve brought Dean in to give us a boost ahead of the run in. His goals record over the past few years in higher leagues speaks for itself, and his energy and enthusiasm for the game will also be a huge asset in the remaining games.

He’s a competitor and a fighter and it’s that spirit which will be needed in the coming weeks with everything still to play for.”

This is Redmond’s second spell with Bethesda.

He previously played for Beaumaris Town and Athletic before making his mark with Menai Tigers.

Redmond piled up 39 goals in 2018-19 as Menai were crowned Gwynedd League champions, but were refused promotion on a ground criteria issue.

The following season he joined Bodedern Athletic of the Welsh Alliance and finished the shortened campaign as top-scorer with 18 goals.

He rejoined Tigers for 2020-21, but the entire season was cancelled due to Covid 19.

This season he was top of Menai’s goal charts before deciding to move to Meurig Park.
