HARRISON ROBERTS made it eight goals in six games with another double and an assist in the Under-12s 5-1 win over Llandudno to earn his place in the Colwyn Bay Academy Players of the Week.
There was spectacular goal from Alex Davies for the Under-8s with a volley from outside the box.
Full list of nominations is:
Alex put in a fantastic performance on Saturday against Llandudno.
He worked extremely hard off the ball, tracking back and making important tackles, but in possession he was even better, looking dangerous every time he had the ball.
Alex has a superb shot for a player of his age and he really used it on Saturday. One goal in particular was a true worldy – a volley from outside the box.
Despite his great shooting ability we have asked Alex to look to try and pass the ball a little bit more and on Saturday he did just that. We have seen in training he is trying hard to improve this aspect of his game and it was great to see it paying off for him in the Llandudno game.
Well done Alex. A brilliant performance.
Keep up the hard work mate.

AN unusual week for the 9’s this week with only the one training session and no game. However, over the last few weeks Harri is a player who has impressed both me and Gaz. In training Harri has been working hard on the ball and this hard work has now been seen in the last few matches with him consistently scoring for the team and giving everything on the pitch when he’s on. Keep up the good work Harri

It’s been Another solid week for Ethan and a player who has been in contention most weeks with his reliable and strong performances week after week.
In training Ethan has been displaying and showcasing his attributes as top defender and then carrying this into his match performances.
He has been challenged and tested against some top forwards since the start of the season and has won more than his fair share of battles.
He is such a strong defender with the physical strength and his reading and anticipation of seeing the danger is superb. He has a real body-on-the-line approach to his defending at times with his last ditch tackles and blocks.
Ethan continues to show his quality on the ball when playing out with his passing ability, and always looking composed and in control and finding team-mates feet, but what has been great to seen in recent weeks is him starting to show some great leadership skills with his communication and organising during games and also in training helping teammates out with understanding of drills and practices.
Well done Ethan Keep up the hard work.
After a super competitive game against Llandudno at the weekend, we are adapting our shape, movement on and off the ball as well as our decision making during all four corners of the game.
Mason was brilliant in directing play and team-mates on and off the ball and is becoming a versatile player in all roles given to him during match days.
His communication and leadership qualities throughout each training and match interaction is increasing and is becoming a vital tool to take with him moving forward.
It has been another superb week for Harrison, and his performance in Sunday’s 5-1 win over Llandudno topped it off, with another back to back double and assist making it eight in his last six games.
It really has been a fantastic period of late for Harrison and he really has come into his own, consistently showing his quality both on and off the ball.
Some of Harrisons attacking wide play has been top draw, with his direct and powerful running with the ball provides a constant threat from the left.
Along with this his movement and running off the ball, his understanding and link up with other players has been first class and he is always looking to be an option and outlet with his willingness to support in the final third where he has had great success and been so clinical in front of goal with some superb finishing.
Just as pleasing, as seen In the recent fixtures, his out of possession work where he is playing with a real determination and aggression to regain the ball.
I am always saying to the players if you work hard you will get your rewards and success, and huge testament to Harrison for this with the way he has been training with a superb attitude and effort given in every session so far.
Well done Harrison Keep up the hard work.
Jack has been brilliant since the start of the new season, providing cover as a screen for the defence and being a focal point in playing out from the back dropping into good positions. Jack plays with a high intensity and presses the ball well, winning it back for the team and allowing us to transition from defence to attack very well.

Tommy has been improving week on week since joining us and is really starting to give teams a problem with his pace and eye for goal.
His implementation of making more angled runs resulted in a well taken goal against Airbus and his understanding of creating space and taking less touches with his back to goal is helping the team to attack quicker and with more focus and is helping in his development towards being a first class attacking player.
We would like to hear his voice more both on the pitch and training ground so hopefully that is something we can develop with him going forward.
Well done Tommy, keep that intensity and work rate up.
