FAW Tier two league formed in 1990

HOLYHEAD


Darren Garmey has stepped up from assistant manager at Holyhead Hotspur, he know you have to improve to survice in the Huws Gray Alliance

OPINION OF YOUR CLUBS PERFORMANCE LAST SEASON - Looking back, I don't feel that our league position reflected the performances we put in. We were involved in a lot of tight games and which were decided by the odd goal or decision which was hard to take, but we as a team need to do more and not leave games to chance. 

AMBITIONS FOR THE COMING SEASON

As always, it's important to continuously improve. We have undergone a lot of change this summer both on and off the pitch. A lot of positive work has been done by the committee so it will be important to keep that momentum going on the pitch also. More consistency and more goals scored should see us do well this year. 

NEW PLAYERS AT YOUR CLUB

We have been lucky to sign almost all of our main targets with them all committing early on which was very pleasing. 

Carl Jones, Jaime Roberts, Harry Galeotti, Caio Hywel, Curt Williams & Luke Mcgivern

GROUNDS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING AND WHY

Personally, throughout the years I have always enjoyed playing at Buckley, so I am glad to see them back in the league. And the other stand out for us will be the short trip to Nantporth to play Bangor City on the Friday night. I'm sure we will have a lot of support there and it will be a special night for the fans. 

PLAYERS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING AND WHY

Harry Galeotti & Luke Mcgivern both young, direct attackers making the step up to the Cymru Alliance. Both have been impressive in pre-season and are hungry to impress at this level. Also, Jaime Roberts who has returned for his second spell at the club looks to have matured into a top player and has been a stand out performer in pre-season. 

WHO DO YOU SEE AS IN CONTENTION FOR THE LEAGUE TITLE

I cannot see past Bangor, Rhyl and Airbus. They have all invested heavily and I think they may have their own mini league at the top of the table. 3 great clubs who without a doubt should be in the top division. 

HOW COMPETITIVE DO YOU THINK THE LEAGUE WILL BE NEXT SEASON

I think it will be the most competitive season so far, so many strong teams all capable of getting a result home or away. I don't think there will be any teams rooted to the bottom winless this year anyway! 

TEAM WHO COULD SURPRISE A FEW

 Penrhyncoch finished the season very strong last year, they seem a lot lot more settled and consistent recently and Gari deserves a lot of credit for that. So if they can carry that on with their new signings bedding in, I can see them having a very good start to the season. 

PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR

Asa Hamilton - in my opinion one of the best strikers in the league over the last few years. It will be very interesting to see him at a top club like Airbus with a genuine chance of promotion. 

Les Davies & Marc Williams - both quality forwards stepping down to be part of the Bangor revolution. No doubt these two will be a fearsome partnership and will be key to how Bangor perform. 

THIS IS THE LAST SEASON OF THE HUWS GRAY CYMRU ALLIANCE – ANY MEMORIES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE

 My best memory would be as a player in 2008/09 when under Campbell Harrison & Mark Williams we had a great season pushing Bala Town all the way losing out on promotion by a single point. The majority of that team were under 18 years old and some are still key players for me in this coming season. 

OPINION OF THE NEW FAW PYRAMID

Exciting times ahead, I'm sure the new pyramid and criteria will raise the standards even more. 

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD

I would just like to wish all the other managers, coaches, players and match officials the best of luck for the new season. We as a club look forward to hosting you all and will see you all very soon. All the best!!
