ALED BEARDMORE, who has had a call-up to the first team squad this season, capped a captain’s performance for the Under-19s against Flint on Sunday by volleying a fantastic goal from outside the area, and he earns a place in Colwyn Bay Academy’s Players of the Week.
Oliver Jennings put in a stand-out performance to help the Under-11s to an excellent result against TNS.
The full list of nominations is:
ALED BEARDMORE (Under-19s): Being asked to play in a different role in a tough away game at Flint, Aled led from the front and put in a real captain’s performance.
Out of possession he worked extremely hard, pressing at every opportunity, and was calm and composed when in possession. His performance was topped off by a fantastic goal scored on the volley from outside the area.
Well done Al, fully deserved. Mark Orme (coach). See the goal on Sam on Twitter: “Aled Beardmore take a bow son. 🚀⚽🍿👏🏽 @ColwynBayFC 19s. https://t.co/49Wsotb0j3” / Twitter
MATT HARDAKER (Under-16s): Matt has only been with us a few weeks, but we have been really pleased with his hard work in training and his composure on the ball. He is difficult to dispossess and gets his head up quickly, always looking for the forward pass.
A really promising start. Well done Matt. Paul Adams (U16s coach).
CHARLIE WEAVER (Under-15s): No game this week for the U15s this week, but over the last few weeks Charlie has developed significantly. His movement off the ball has really helped the way we are looking to play as a team to create overloads. Charlie has a great work ethic be it in games or in training.Well done Charlie. Keep up the hard work. Russ and Zac (U15 coaches).
BEN WOODMANSEE (Under-14s): Although the U14s have had a free week with no match, in training Ben has maintained the high standards expected. Working hard to improve his game and had stood out to myself and other coaches. Well done Ben. Kev Jones (coach).
CAI WILLIAMS (Under-12s): Cai gave a superb account of himself this weekend in a very tough game against TNS.
He worked tirelessly up front on his own in the first half and his energy and enthusiasm was fantastic to see as he constantly pressed the ball high up the field, forcing the opposition to play backwards.
Cai’s enthusiasm off the ball was superb as he constantly looked to find space or draw out the opposition to create space for his teammates. In the second half he played out wide and it was more of the same from him.
His quick feet caused the opposition a lot of problems and his link up play with the rest of the team was superb.Overall a really good solid performance from Cai. His desire and commitment was faultless.
Well done Cai; a fantastic display mate. Keep up the hard work. Lee Bubb (Head of Foundation).
OLIVER JENNINGS (Under-11s): There were a number of great performances in the team against TNS, with every player in with a shout for Player of the Week, but Oliver edged it with his great performance.
He led the team very well from the back, talking constantly and showing some great leadership qualities for his age, which helped the side maintain their lead late on under pressure from the opposition.
He also put in a great display defensively, with a number of key tackles and interceptions being made, and his playing out from the back was also of a high level. George Read (U11s coach).
WHOLE TEAM (Under-10s):This week, this team has taken a monumental step up in the level that they are training and playing at. The lads in training are pushing each other harder than ever and they are all rising to the challenge. With the intensity and skill level the highest it’s been.
At TNS the lads to a man were outstanding, with every single one of them giving 110% effort and more. Some of the passing sequences that were shown were fascinating to watch and the Intense pressure that they continued to maintain through until the end made myself and Wayne extremely proud.
I hope the lads can continue in this manner and push on even more ready for the return of the league and show everyone what they are capable of. Well Done Lads. Keep up the hard work. Mason Blackwell Jones and Wayne Jones (U10s Coaches).
IOAN JONES (Under-9s): Ioan had a great game on Saturday against TNS, demonstrating how the club wants a Bay player to play on the ball and off the ball. He played mostly in a defensive position, with countless blocks and tackles stopping the opposition attacks, and also offered an attacking threat looking to go 1 v 1 with the opposition. Well done Ioan, keep up the hard work. Joe Fitzpatrick (U9s coach).
