Caernarfon


Caernarfon Town manager took time out to share his views for the coming season with the Hues Gray Alliance web site

OPINION OF YOUR CLUBS PERFORMANCE LAST SEASON:

It was a difficult season trying to overcome the Domestic Licence disappointment but we showed good mental strength to consolidate the Runners Up spot in the League and reach the Semi-Final of the Welsh Cup.

AMBITIONS FOR NEXT SEASON:

It's a clean slate for us so we're hoping to finish in and amongst Airbus and Rhyl whom I'm sure will be desperate to bounce straight back into the WPL.

NEW PLAYERS:

Liam Jones (GK from Llandudno), Rhys Roberts (Defender from Holyhead),

Gareth Evans (Midfielder from Llandudno), Ryan Williams (Utility Player from Wrexham), Mark Griffiths (Forward from Caersws).

GROUND YOU LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING AND WHY:

Rhyl and Holywell as they're traditional football grounds and whom have good support. Airbus also, because of the fantastic set up.

PLAYERS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING AND WHY:

Darren Thomas and Jamie Breese have been very sharp in pre-season and Jay Gibbs has looked strong. Ryan Williams has settled in well and will continue to grow and become a great addition.

WHO DO YOU SEE AS IN CONTENTION FOR THE LEAGUE TITLE:

Airbus and Rhyl for me. The set-up at Airbus is amongst the best in the Welsh pyramid and obviously they've signed well. Rhyl with the expectation of the fans will be desperate to win it. I expect Flint to have a go also.

HOW COMPETITIVE DO YOU THINK THE LEAGUE WILL BE NEXT SEASON:

Very competitive and I think it'll be impossible to predict results as everyone is capable of beating each other. Every week possess different challenges and I'm looking forward to it.

TEAM WHO COULD SURPRISE A FEW:

Ruthin Town purely for team spirit and I admired what Chris Williams achieved their last season. Gresford also.

PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR:

Andy Coughlin and Steve Tomassen at Airbus, Mark Connolly at Rhyl.

OPINION OF THE LEAGUE:

It's by far the best league in Wales and it keeps getting stronger every year which is only healthy.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD:

Good luck everyone
