The three Barry Town United players who could make an impact in the Welsh Premier League
With the Welsh Premier returning next week, we take a look at the three Barry Town United players who could make a big difference in the club’s return to the big time.
Chris Hugh endured a fantastic season at Jenner Park, which included producing one of the performances of the season in the Nathaniel MG Cup final at Cyncoed Campus – in spite of this though, Barry Town United still went onto lose 4-0.
All in all the former Merthyr Town full-back made a total of 33 appearances last season. He was also desribed by former manager Steve Jenkins as the “Best left-back in the Welsh League”
Hugh can also operate as a wing back, where he was so effective last season for the Vale of Glamorgan outfit and will be hoping he can replicate his form in the Welsh Premier League this season.
Since his return to the club in 2015, Jordan Cotterill has been in senastional form.
During Welsh League Division One last season he scored a total of 12 goals – 58 in 100 for Barry Town United all together and what makes him such an iconic player is that he is versatile in that he can operate as a playmaker or a winger.
There is definitely a case for him making a nuisance of himself in the Welsh Premier League, especially from dead ball situations as he has earned a reputation for being a free-kick specialist.
McLaggon looked a bright spark in pre-season and brought a real zest of life to the Barry attack whilst scoring twice against Newport County in a 2-0 win.
The former Merthyr Town man, who helped guide the Martyrs to the semi-finals of the Southern League Premier Division could be a vital asset in Barry’s return to the Welsh Premier League.
