DAN TWAMLEY scored a hat-trick for the Under-12s in their win over Bala Town and is among the Colwyn Bay FC Academy Players of the Week nominations. 

Ben Agar made a big step up from the Under-16s and had outstanding debut for the Under-19s in their game against Bala’s development squad, while Brychan Rhys-Williams did a fantastic job as stand-in goalkeeper for the Under-14s. 

The full list of nominations this week is: 

BEN AGAR (UNDER-19s): Ben, who was promoted from the U16s, had an outstanding first performance for the 19s, putting in a strong spirited 90 minutes.

 Ben took details on and for any step up at any level to perform the way he did is a credit to his attitude and shows the progression of individuals we have as a collective which take priority above anything else Academy. Matt Sampson (Academy Director).

CAM BERRY (UNDER-16s): After a few difficult weeks, with Cam out due to illness, he has joined back up with the rest of squad and has been training really well.

 After a tough match last week, we were looking for a reaction from him against Bala and Cam showed great strength and mentality to bounce back and had a very solid game -.

 He battled well, won his individual duels and yet again showed great composure on the ball to gain the team ground when moving up the pitch.

 A very solid display Cam, keep up the good work. Anthony & Paul (U16’s coaches).

CONNOR NATTRASS (UNDER-15s): Connor has been out injured for the last month and was close to returning, but joined the squad ahead of schedule for Sunday’s game as we have a number of players missing. 

 Connor worked hard for 65 minutes always looking to get us moving forward with big switches of play, creating overloads in the final third and great movement off the ball and not afraid to take a shot from range coming close on a number of occasions.

Well done Connor great to have you back from injury. Russ & Zac (U15s coaches)

BRYCHAN RHYS-WILLIAMS (UNDER-14s): Brychan has shown an excellent attitude to team ethics and personal determinatio,n having missed out on playing in the last game. He has worked hard in training, especially on his positional work, and shown some good improvements.

 This week he sacrificed that hard work to step up and play in goal and he stepped up to the challenge, providing the team with a solid and reliable base to build their attacks and hold the defensive line. Fantastic job Brychan,  well done. Russ (Under-14s coach).

HARRY STUBBS (UNDER-13s): Harry put in a fantastic individual performance and was key in what was a superb comeback on Sunday away to Bala.

Harry’s calmness on the ball was brilliant this weekend. Whether it was in support going forward or just keeping things simple to retain possession.

  With Harrys improving confidence, his decision making was faultless to be fair. He brought players into play by manipulating space and was
involved heavily in our attacking play. 

 He assisted in our first goal and scored a great goal himself, to put us ahead for the first time in the game.

 Another player who has suffered a little with the odd injury, Harry has stuck to his guns and put in another very impressive display. Well done Harry. A great performance. Keep up the hard work mate. Lee Bubb (U13s Head Coach).

DAN TWAMLEY (UNDER-12s):  Another outstanding midfield display from Dan on Sunday where he grabbed a Hat-Trick and man of the match with his all round contributions and performance. 

From the off Dan looked to control the midfield orchestrating and dictating the play always looking to drop in and receive in between the lines and then turn and play forward or wide.

 Again Dan was really brave when situations were difficult and congested , but showed great skill to manoeuvre his way out and effectively switch play into Great areas.

 It was great to see Dan amongst the goals this week as usually he is a provider, but this was no surprise as he is a superb technician of the football and is such a threat from range and supporting the attack.

Well done Dan, absolutely superb form over the last month keep up the hard work. Matthew Roberts (U12s Coach).

THOMAS LOVELL  (UNDER-11s):  Thomas was one of the standout performers in my first game with the U11s. Thomas had a very composed performance in defence against Bala, reading the danger well and making several crucial tackles.

  Thomas consistently made himself an option for the goalkeeper in an attempt to build from the back and distributed the ball effectively when he had the opportunity.

 Well done Thomas. James (U11 coach)

BEN BROOKS (UNDER-9s): Ben had an outstanding game in goal at the weekend. During the game Ben made countless saves including a great 1 on 1 save at 2-2 to keep his team in the game. 

 One thing we have been working on with Ben was his distribution, this was evident in the game with him making great decisions and even got himself an assist  from a goal kick. Well done Ben, keep up the good work. Joe Fitzpatrick (U9s head coach)
