Jonathon Jones

Jonathon signed for the Wellmen from Cheshire side Winsford United.  Now in his third season at

Halkyn Road, Jones is a tall centre back and has strengthened the back line since his addition to

the squad and is a firm favourite amongst the fans.

Matty Harvey

Harvey returned to the Wellmen’s back four last season, after a season away from the game.  Prior to that, Harvey had a successful season for the Wellmen, helping the club being crowned Welsh Alliance League Champions.  His tall, strong presence adds strength to the back four and Harvey will score his fair share of goals when in the opponent’s penalty area for set pieces.

Lee Emberton

Signed during the close season of 2016 having played for Airbus FC, where he made his WPL debut against Newtown in March 2014.  Lee is a young player with a big future in the game.  Lee returns this season after missing most of last season through injury.

Aidan Roxburgh

Roxburgh signed for the club during the summer of 2018 having played for Runcorn Town last season after completing the scholarship programme at The New Saints FC.   Roxburgh is an attacking full back who is equally at home playing on the wing and will be a real asset for the club this season.

Matthew Kendrick

Kendrick signed for the Wellmen close to the end of last season, and in the couple of games he played before getting injured, he demonstrated what he can bring to the team.  Kendrick was voted Managers Player of the Year for his performances during last season.

Danny Desormeaux

The Wellmen welcome experienced Desormeaux to Halkyn Road after his signing from playing local football in Chester last season, and will be a great asset to the side this season.  Danny started his career with Christleton, before signing for Cefn Druids.  He then moved to Newtown before returning to his hometown club of Christleton.  After a year in Australia, Desormeaux joined Rhyl and was a part of their UEFA Cup squad in 2007 before signing for Airbus UK.  He had a short spell at Cammell Laird before moving to Conwy United, then returned to the Welsh Premier League with a spell at Connah’s Quay Nomads. 

Paul D Williams

Williams returned to the club a couple of seasons ago after a short spell at Greenfield.  Once on the books at Wrexham, Williams experience is a big boost to the Wellmen, and Williams gives 100% in every game he plays for the club and commands the midfield area well.   Despite interest from other clubs during the summer, Williams signed for the Wellmen for the forthcoming season. Was voted players player of the year at last season’s Award Ceremony.

Sam Jones

Fans Favourite Jones returned to the club after a season away from the game.  Jones impressive displays for the Wellmen during the Welsh Alliance championship and treble winning season saw him sign for Welsh Premier League side Bangor City during the summer of 2015, but picked up an injury before making his debut with the club.  Jones’ power and eye for goal sees him a constant threat for defenders, and yet again will see him regularly on the scoresheet during the season ahead.  He received offers from a number of clubs over the summer but signed for his hometown club for the forthcoming season.   

Connor Littler                                                                                                                                                              Another to have signed from Airbus during the summer of 2016 and has had an excellent pre-season with the Wellmen and will be looking to continue that form into the forthcoming season.  After a season away from the game, Littler returns to Halkyn Road looking to emulate his form a couple of season’s ago where he ended up Town’s top goalscorer. 

Lee Davey                                                                                                                                                                 Davey signs for the club for the forthcoming season after joining us before last season’s registration deadline.  Davey has already been amongst the goals preseason and look’s to continue that goalscoring form into the 2018/19 season.   Proven goalscorer, Lee’s previous clubs include Colwyn Bay, Conwy Borough and Heswall.

Jack Pennington                                                                                                                                                          Jack made his debut during the 2016/17 season after his standing out performances for the Reserves side.  He broke into the 1st team squad at the latter end of the 2016/17 season and his performances won rave reviews, and was literally ever present during the last few weeks of the season.  So much so, his performances saw him pick up the Young Player of the Year award at the Club’s presentation night that year.   His performances in the middle of the park shows maturity beyond his years and Pennington will have a huge future in the game.

Damian Ketley                                                                                                                                                         Ketley signed for the Wellmen on the eve of the new season from Llandudno Town.  He was with Prestatyn Town last season, and after the Seasiders were relegated from the Welsh Premier League, Ketley stood out as one of their most consistent performers over the course of the season.  Ketley is a powerful striker who has played football at Huws Gray Alliance level, after playing for Holyhead Hotspur back in 2016, where he was their top scorer with 10 goals. He has also had spells at Colwyn Bay and Mold Alexandra.
