Ed­wards’ star turn on de­but

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

HOLY­HEAD Town have added an­other lo­cal tal­ent to their squad as they bid to push for the Gwynedd Foot­ball League ti­tle.

Mike Ed­wards has signed for the Har­bour­men from neigh­bours Holy­head Hot­spur.

The left-sided spe­cial­ist, 28, has de­vel­oped a pen­chant for scor­ing spe­cial goals in a ca­reer which has also taken in stints at Tran­mere Rovers, Llangefni Town and Trearddur Bay United.

Ed­wards was a prom­i­nent mem­ber of the 2011/12 Welsh Al­liance tre­ble-win­ning Hot­spur side, while his most mem­o­rable goal for the team was surely the 25-yard vol­ley against Welsh­pool in the 2006/07 Welsh Cup quar­ter-fi­nals in front of the Sgo­rio cam­eras.

Town now be­come Ed­wards’ fifth club and he be­gan in good style with a man of the match per­for­mance in last Satur­day’s 3-3 draw against Beau­maris Town on the Ban­gor City 3G pitch.

It was Town’s first draw of the sea­son and edged them to within three points of Gwynedd League lead­ers Bro Goronwy.

The Har­bour­men would have been ex­pected to win com­fort­ably against a Beau­maris team strug­gling one place off the bot­tom, but the Castle­men pro­duced an ex­cel­lent bat­tling dis­play to se­cure a point.

Matty Jones, Cal­lum Hughes and Dar­ren Lewth­waite struck for the hosts, Bar­rie Lavelle, Rickie Lavelle and Tom Hadley re­ply­ing in a six-goal thriller.

All other Gwynedd League matches sched­uled for last Satur­day were off due to the in­clement weather.

Beau­maris keeper David Clarke stretches to clear this Holy­head cor­ner.
