OPINION OF YOUR CLUB’S PERFORMANCE LAST SEASON.

I joined Denbigh last November at a difficult time for the club, their confidence and morale was at a low point.
The Management and myself knew we had a tough task ahead of ourselves, but one we were confident we could overcome.
We did turn things around and this set a good platform in readiness for the season we are about to begin.

AMBITIONS FOR NEXT SEASON.

Our ambitions at Denbigh Town this season are to compete at the top level and set a high standard of playing throughout.
Setting a personal and collective goal to challenge ourselves for the better and to keep improving our game.

NEW PLAYERS.

Kristian Pierce is a powerful midfielder who will add quality in the final third. His range of passing and distribution is of the highest standard. His passion for the club will be a great asset to us this season.

Josh Davies has all the attributes for a complete forward. He’s strong quick and deadly in front of goal and I’m sure he will be a success at Denbigh Town.

Danny Sullivan is a highly rated player who can operate in midfield or defence, his versatility will add balance and quality to our squad.

GROUND YOU LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING AND WHY.

My answer to this is slightly different as I’m looking forward to visiting the two Wrexham based clubs. Both are grounds that I’ve played at on numerous occasions and am familiar with.
One being my old club at Gresford Athletic of where I have fond memories and some close friends.
It will be good to see their new stand and some old faces.
The other is the newly promoted FC Queen’s Park who will play at Stansty Park.
They have climbed the leagues in great style and I’m really intrigued to see how they do this season.
I always enjoy seeing local teams do well and that has influenced my response to this question.

PLAYERS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING AND WHY.

Joe Palmer of Flint Town. Joe is a talented player who has stood out on many occasions. With his hunger, quality and passing ability he has the potential to go far.
Holywell’s Steve Lewis.
Arguably one of the most feared forwards in the league with his experience and presence in front of goal. He’s proven and will give most defenders something to think about this season.

Our captain, defender Ben Nash has been faultless throughout pre-season. His performances have matured since joining. Ben’s professionalism is of the highest calibre and he is a joy to work with.

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

I think the three teams to beat at the top will be Caernarfon, Flint and Airbus. All three teams have recruited well and are clearly setting their goals high in their quest for Welsh Premier Football.
I also think Holywell will be in and around the top. Jonny has been able to keep a close knitted group together over the years which is vital in our league. This will only strengthen their chances at the top.

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

I expect it to be even greater than previous seasons.
The number of great clubs and the high standard of football is very appealing.
Each week managers and players will be tested, which will only improve and promote the League.

TEAM WHO COULD SURPRISE A FEW.

I wouldn’t like to use the term ‘surprise’ as I feel most will be aware of the strengths of Holywell but you don’t often hear them put in the top bracket which I find a mistake.
They will cause trouble for most Cymru Alliance teams.

PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR.

Darren Thomas, Caernarfon.
Steve Lewis, Holywell.
Ryan Edwards, Airbus.
