Colin Reynolds
Colin Reynolds of Caersws has made more appearances in the Welsh Premier than any other player.

THE first player ever to notch up 500 appearances in the Welsh Premier League, 40-year old Colin Reynolds had spent the whole of his career with mid-Wales clubs Newtown and Caersws, until a surprise move to Aberystwyth in the summer of 2008.
He made his debut for the Robins in the first season of the League of Wales, making 312 starts for the Latham Park outfit either in defence or on the right side of midfield.
He ended his time there as captain and managed 51 goals, not bad for a defender.
A switch six miles down the road to the Recreation Ground in 2002 saw him virtually ever-present in manager Mickey Evans' sides.
He started season 2004/5 in pursuit of the magic 400, which he achieved against TNS on 29 January 2005.
A move to Aberystwyth saw him kept waiting for the two appearances he needed to reach to 500-mark, but he finally achieved the milestone when named as captain against Airbus UK Broughton on Sunday 12 October 2008.
A Welshman by birth, Reynolds leads by example and his towering performances have earned him two League of Wales caps and one for the Welsh semi-professional side.
Highly regarded by rival managers and players alike, he ended his Welsh Premier career in August 2009 by moving to Llanidloes Town in the Montgomeryshire League.
