2021-05-15-Penybont v Connahs Quay Nomads-75 (2).jpg

The JD Cymru Premier Team of the Season for the 2021/22 campaign has been announced today (8th June), following the conclusion of voting by the league's managers.

In a year that saw Connah's Quay Nomads retain their crown, Andy Morrison's men find themselves with six representatives in the best XI, according to their peers.

Runners-up The New Saints, who pushed the title race to the final day, are the next most represented side with four of last year's side securing spots in the starting lineup.

Whilst both Penybont and Bala Town complete the lineup with one representative apiece, after their campaigns.

Read the full side below. 

Goalkeeper - Oliver Byrne (Connah's Quay Nomads)

Oliver Byrne impressed between the sticks for the champions this season, after being thrust into the lineup following Lewis Brass' departure mid-way through the campaign. However, the 23 year-old stepped up and aided the reigning champions to their consecutive title.

Right Back - John Disney (Connah's Quay Nomads)

John Disney has been one of Andy Morrison's stalwarts at the club since his arrival. The right-back has been virtually ever-present this season, making 30 appearances in the league as the club retained their title.

Centre Back - Ryan Astles (The New Saints)

Ryan Astles has been a valuable addition to The New Saints backline this season, alongside Blaine Hudson. The towering centre-half joined the club in the summer and proved his worth, as the club finished runners-up in the tense title race.

Centre Back - George Horan (Connah's Quay Nomads)

The centre-back has been one of Andy Morrison's key men since taking over as manager and he is showing no signs of letting up. The 39 year-old even chipped in with seven league goals in the title-winning campaign for the club.

Left Back - Kane Owen (Penybont)

Kane Owen has made a name for himself as one of the most exciting players in the league since Penybont's promotion and this season was no different. The club captain was crucial to his side's on the field success, as Penybont finished in the Championship Conference in just their second season in the division. 

Right Midfield - Callum Morris (Connah's Quay Nomads) 

Another one of Morrison's dependable men, Callum Morris' 10 league goals were crucial as The Nomads retained their league title in a tense battle. His record from the spot has proved invaluable to the club over the past few season.

Centre Midfield - Ryan Brobbel (The New Saints)

It was a campaign marred by injury for Ryan Brobbel, but when available, the midfielder showed his worth to the side. In his 14 JD Cymru Premier matches, the midfielder netted 12 times, standing out enough for the league's managers to hand him a spot in the best XI.

Centre Midfield - Adrian Cieslewicz (The New Saints)

Pairing Brobbel in midfield is his The New Saints team-mate Adrian Cieslewicz. The 30 year-old has impressed ever since joining the club back in 2014 and has once again proved his worth in the eyes of the league's managers, as he netted eight times in the league campaign.

Left Midfield - Danny Davies (Connah's Quay Nomads)

The bright spark on the left side of the Connah's Quay Nomads attack has lit the league up since joining Morrison's men from Prestatyn Town last summer. Davies has wowed many with his performances up for his endless running up and down the left-wing. His performances in his 30 matches have earned him a spot in the eleven.

Striker - Mike Wilde (Connah's Quay Nomads)

Mike Wilde enjoyed one of his most fruitful campaigns yet, as the Nomads secured Champions League football once again next term. His 18 goals in 27 games were the foundation of the Nomads' success. However, his shining moment came in the most crucial game of the season, as he netted a first half hat-trick against his former club, The New Saints, in what proved to be the turning point in the title battle.

Striker - Chris Venables (Bala Town) 

The golden boot winner in the 2020/21 season, Chris Venables continues to impress in the JD Cymru Premier. His 24 goals in 31 matches saw Bala Town secure qualification for the inaugural Europa Conference League this summer, with Venables essential to their attacking force this term once again.
