SCOTT BECK reckons it's his younger brother Shaun - but just who is the best striker in North East Wales?

“Even at the age of 37, Shaun in my opinion is still the best striker is this area,” said Beck after watching his sibling hit a second-half hat-trick in Greenfield’s 4-1 Welsh Alliance Division One win at Llandudno Junction last week.

“He scored goals for years with Flint in the Cymru Alliance and he is showing no signs of slowing down. If a chance falls his way it will no doubt end up in the back of the net."

It's hard to argue that Shaun is one of the best goalscorers the region has produced, although a glance at the other divisions shows that he has plenty of competition for the crown of current number one.

Connah's Quay Nomads striker Michael Wilde and James Davies, of Cefn Druids, are scoring goals in the Welsh Premier League, while former Wrexham youngster Alex Darlington and Airbus hitman Asa Hamilton are in double figures in the Cymru Alliance.

Former Bangor City striker Alan Bull has bagged 14 goals in the Welsh National Premier Division for Brickfield Rangers, with Mold Alex's Callum Freeman and Corwen's ex-Wrexham youngster Joe Williams keeping him company at the top of the scoring charts.

Further down the pyramid and Acton ace Niall Challinor has 27 goals this season, while Jack Aitken has helped fire Flint Mountain to the top of North East Wales League with 15 strikes.
