Revealed | Fans Choice: Welsh Football League Division Two – Team of the Season 2017/2018
It started off as a three-way battle for the Division One title, but in the end, Llanelli Town’s return to the Welsh Premier League was complete.
Andy Hill who lead the Reds to a League and Cup double last season masterminded a second consecutive promotion for Llanelli.
Haverfordwest County and Penybont were the closest to the Reds, with both also applying for promotion to the Welsh top flight.
Cwmbran Celtic’s Chris Ham was named Y Clwb Pel-Droed’s Welsh Football League Division One ‘Player of the Season’ last week but surprisingly misses out on the public vote.
The team is made up predominantly of Llanelli players for their title success, winning the league by a total of fifteen points.
This is a vote done by the readers of Y Clwb Pel-Droed who voted on our article last week. This is an unofficial vote, not one of the Welsh Football League.

Right-Back: Jordan Vickers (Cwmamman United and Llanelli Town)
Vickers spent a majority of the season with Cwmamman United, in their battle down at the bottom of Division One. However, in March he moved to Steboneath Park, to help them in the battle at the top. He has since moved on from the Reds, signing for Welsh Premier League side Carmarthen Town.
Centre-back: Sean Pemberton (Haverfordwest County)
Pemberton is one of only three non Llanelli players to be included in the team. Pemberton was included last season and has been part of a solid foundation of the Bluebirds defence.
