Llandudno FC have made a shrewd move in the market this New Year by snapping up defender Wes Baynes from Cymru Alliance side Airbus UK Broughton FC.
It’s the fourth official signing in as many days, having registered manager Iwan Williams and assistant manager Matthew Williams as players. Marc Evans has also joined the club, having returned from New Zealand.
The player’s last appearance for the Wingmakers was only 4 days earlier in a 4-0 victory over FC Queens park on the 30th of December.
Baynes has previously played for league rivals Connah’s Quay Nomads making 55 WPL appearances, providing a crucial goal that took the Nomads into Europe in 2015.
Baynes joins the 8th placed Llandudno after a recent drop in form has seen them only take one win in their last five matches, and will no doubt be a welcome addition to manager Iwan Williams squad.
The Seasiders will be hoping that Baynes will help contribute even further to the third-best defence in the league so far this season, as they have only shipped 19 goals at the back, with their main issue being a lack of goals.
Baynes appears to be relishing the opportunity to return to the Welsh Premier League, saying “
After speaking with Iwan I am very excited at the prospect of playing back in the Welsh Premier League and hopefully helping them in their next two games of achieving that sixth spot”.
Whilst his new side only sit one point behind the 6th placed Barry Town United, games against Bala Town and Cefn Druids will provide a stern introduction back into the WPL for the 29-year-old right back.
