Cwmbran Celtic forward Joshua Bull celebrates Century of goals for Gwent club
Cwmbran Celtic’s Joshua Bull has expressed his delight after reaching a landmark of goals for the club.
Bull scored his 100th goal for Celtic against Pontypridd Town last week as they eased to victory at Leckwith Stadium.
The former Goytre striker said: “I am absolutely over the moon to get there.
“All the lads have been superb pushing me on to do it and the reaction when I did you can see how close we all are having all of us celebrating together because they know how much it means to me.
“I would like to thank them because a lot of them don’t get the credit they deserve if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t of been able to get there.”
The prolific forward has had spells away from the club with Aberystwyth Town and in the Southern League Premier Division with Merthyr Town.
However Bull has always found himself back at Celtic Park having begun his career with the Gwent side.
Manager Lee Challenger has been a big reason why Bull has remained so loyal to the tier two side.
“Coming through Cwmbran Celtic’s academy building up close friendships with the majority of the boys is one of the main reasons whenever I have gone away it has always been to try and better myself.
I have had some great experiences and made some great memories away from Cwmbran but nothing has compared to that at Cwmbran.
“Having one of my close friends like the manager is massive so he understands how I work better than most and I understand him that is the secret to having a great working relationship in football and to get the best out of me to benefit the team.”
Having played briefly for Aberystwyth Town in the Welsh Premier League during pre-season and in the seventh tier of English football with Merthyr.
But a majority of Bull’s career has been spent playing in the Welsh League, where he has seen an improvement.
“In my opinion since I come on the scene at welsh league it was always competitive but as the years have gone by and it’s continuously improving.
“The standard of playing, officiating the facilities and the work from you guys on the media side of things really helps the Welsh league.
“Its a shame we can’t get more people out supporting it but I have noticed slowly the attendance is increasing especially at home.
“I put that down to the work of having the new stand credit to the club for pulling off a near-impossible task in doing that.
