Cambrian complete triple swoop for Welsh starlets
Cambrian and Cyldach have announced the signings of Lewis Baldwin, Ibby So Sani and Elijah Chilekwa until the end of the season.
Baldwin and So Sani both arrive from Cardiff City, while Chilekwa, despite also being based in the Welsh capital, has joined from Worcester City.
Centre-back Baldwin may well be a familiar face for some at the CSB Stadium after playing a crucial part in a 4-1 Youth Cup win over Cambrian in 2014, where he even had a stint in goal during the last 10 minutes.
Fellow Bluebirds youngster So Sani has already earned himself a reputation for being a powerful goalscorer, with the forward also part of the Wales Under-16 squad that won the Victory Shield in 2014.
Former Bristol City youngster and Wales under-17 international Chilekwa was recently heralded by Worcester boss Carl Heeley as showing “glimpses of pace and trickery” during pre-season, but travel issues from his Cardiff home ultimately proved a hurdle to further progress at the club.

The trio could be available for tomorrow’s visit of struggling Monmouth Town, as boss Craig Hughes looks to continue their push for promotion to the Welsh Premier League.
Cambrian have lost just one of their last four league outings and currently sit in second place, three points behind Goytre, although the leaders do have the luxury of two games in hand.
