SPORTS reporter Dean Jones returns with his weekly Huws Gray Alliance awards during another busy weekend of action.

Team of the Week: Conwy Borough

After losing their opening two contests in closely fought battles, the Tangerines have now pulled off three straight and made light work of Denbigh Town last Friday in a comfortable 4-1 home win over Denbigh Town.

Gareth Thomas’ treble-winners look to have found their feet very early on in the season as they look to re-establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with within the second tier, and there will not be many teams that will fancy coming up against Boro’ if they continue this sort of form on a consistent basis throughout the season.

Manager of the Week: Darren Garmey (Holyhead Hotspur)

It has been a difficult start for the new man at the helm of the Holy Islanders, but Garmey’s struggling side proved they are still all pulling for the manager to secure an eye-catching draw with title fancies Bangor City.

They remained resolute in the face of sustained pressure throughout the contest and looked very organised at the back, and they also provided the Citizens with plenty to think about on the break and were very deserving of a share of the spoils.

The Spurs boss will be hoping that this morale-boosting draw will finally kick-start their season.

Player of the Week: Asa Hamilton (Airbus Broughton)

Hamilton arrived at the Wingmakers with a big reputation and the physical striker has lived up to expectations so far.

He was at the top of his game once again in their 5-0 rout over Gresford Athletic, netting twice and providing a constant source of distress for the beleaguered back-line of their opponents.

If he continues to perform at the level he has in the opening five games, then the title hopefuls are going to take some catching.

Man in Form: Mike Pritchard (Rhyl)

It is no coincidence that the Lilies’ fortunes on the field have improved as the standard of play from Pritchard has increased.

He was a constant thorn in the Porthmadog side during their superb 3-1 win on their travels, with his ability to dictate proceedings in the final third of the field matched only by his work-rate when he is attempting to win the ball back.

Eddie Maurice-Jones will be heavily reliant on Pritchard as the season progresses, and he has surrounded the forward with a wealth of talent to ensure their pre-season goals are met.

Team to watch: Penrhyncoch

The Roosters continue to make their presence felt at Huws Gray Alliance level despite being largely written off at the start of the season thanks to significant investment elsewhere.

One of those clubs were Flint Town United, who Pen disposed of 1-0 last weekend to further prove that they are not going to make things easy for any team visiting them this term.
