Williams extends Llandudno stay as Edwards signs on
Llandudno FC have confirmed that star man Marc Williams has signed a contract extension ahead of the 2017/18 Welsh Premier League season.
Williams, who has played for the likes of Wrexham, Chester and Kidderminster Harriers in the past, has proved to be a highly important player in the club’s two WPL campaigns to date.
In his, and indeed the club’s debut season in 2015/16, the forward won the League’s Player of the Season award scoring 16 goals in 32 appearances as Llandudno finished third and earned themselves a European spot.
Despite a disappointing campaign overall for the Seasiders during 2016/17, which saw them just manage to avoid relegation, Williams was once again their most important player. He scored six times in 24 games in a campaign that was marred by injuries.
The news of the former Wales Under-21 international’s new contract extension will surely come as a delight to everyone involved with Llandudno FC.
Manager, Alan Morgan, told the club website: “I’m absolutely delighted that Marc has signed on, in my eyes he’s the best No.10 in the league. 22 goals in two seasons is a very good return for a No.10 so I’m delighted with what he’s given to me over the last couple of seasons.
“Hopefully he continues in the same award-winning form he’s produced since the day he signed.”
Marc Williams himself told Y Clwb Pel Droed: “I’m delighted to have come to an agreement with Llandudno and to have signed an extension on my contract.
“Obviously, we were all disappointed with last years campaign so we want to put it right this year, hopefully we can push for a top six finish once again.”
Llandudno have also boosted their squad further by signing midfielder Ryan Edwards.
The 23-year-old has already experienced life in the WPL with Connah’s Quay Nomads, TNS, Cefn Druids, Bala Town, and most recently Airbus UK and so brings a wealth of experience with him.
Speaking on capturing the talented player, Alan Morgan told the club website: “Big welcome to Ryan, I’ve been after him the last couple of years so I’m glad he decided to put pen to paper with us.
“He’s caused us problems the past couple of seasons, so he’ll hopefully cause problems for our opposition out in the wide positions moving forward, he’s another good signing for us and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
