Fellows back in Dragons defence
The Dragons have added further steel in defence with the return of club stalwart Steve Fellows.Â
The long-serving defenceman was Head Coach at Deeside last year, before the summer appointment of Lol Paul.Â
He will return to a player roleÂ nextÂ season, as The Dragons set theirÂ targets on the Laidler Conference title.
And Paul is delighted to have retained the services of another Flintshire favourite.
He said: â€œSecuring Steve Fellows for next season has been an absolute priority for me this summer. He knows this club inside out and brings a huge amount of expertise.
â€œSteve has been a regular at Deeside for 20 years and will always give one hundred per cent commitment on every shift. That is going to be very important for us.
â€œHe also puts up some very good numbers from defence. He collected 19 points last season, which was a vital contribution. Iâ€™ll be expecting the same next season.â€
The return of Fellows will see him line up alongside Marc Lovell, Bryn Roberts and Matthew Wainwright in a tough-looking Deeside rearguard
The exact make-up of defensive lines is still to be decided by The Dragons coaching team â€“ but the Welshman is certain to play a major role.
Paul added: â€œThe great thing about Steve is that heâ€™s a great guy, who will do whatever is needed for the team.Â
â€œI have knownÂ him for a very long time, mostly here in Deeside. I am sure there will times next season when I ask Steve for his advice during games and in training.â€
â€œThe fact that we have a strong defence, and some great players up front, means I can talk to players with confidence about our chances in the league.â€
