GUTO WILLIAMS (BANGOR CITY)
THIS season has seen Scott Quigley become the latest Welsh Premier player to make the step up to the Football League when he joined Blackpool from The New Saints for £35,000.
After making nine substitute appearances for the League One club, they allowed the 25-year-old to join National League Wrexham on loan for the rest of the campaign earlier this month.
And Quigley has made some impact, scoring both goals on debut in a 2-0 win at Hartlepool United, before netting again in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Tranmere Rovers..
The Shrewsbury-born front-man is one in a long line of WPL talents to get snapped up by clubs in either the Football League or National League.
Lee Trundle, Craig Jones and Eifion Williams are just three to have successfully made the transition.
But perhaps the finest example of all was Mark Delaney.
He left Carmarthen Town in 1998 to star for Cardiff City and Aston Villa.
He also went on to win 36 full Wales caps.
So are there any other Welsh Premier or lower league operators capable of following in Quigley’s footsteps?
Here are seven possibles playing for our local clubs who might just shine at National League level or higher....
Possibly just a little early for a National League step-up pp for this young defender? Not so sure. A product of Bangor’s ngor’s successful youth develevelopment system, Williams is only 17 but ut has so looked the e part in his first- team outings so far. Tremendous talent.
Turns 30 this year but I’ve always had faith in his ability to sparkle at a higher level. Llandudno and is sparkling again, producing a man of the match display in scoring two goals against Ruthin Town in last Saturday’s 4-3 victory.
He has always been a stand-out performer when Caernarfon have faced Welsh Premier sides in the cups.
