Lilywhites announce ambitious trio of signings

Rhyl have made a trio of signings as they recruit local talents Gerwyn Jones, Cory Williams and Diego Alvarado.

With relegation from the Premier League now in the back of the minds at Rhyl, the task in hand has been to assemble a squad capable of challenging for promotion and manager Niall McGuinness has moved quickly to snap up three players.


The 26 year-old centre-back was part of the double winning Glantraeth side of this season following a move from Cymru Alliance side Porthmadog.

Jones had previously played at Rhyl before but made just one appearance under then-manager Greg Strong.


The Lilywhites then announced that Cory Williams who had previously played at Rhyl before moving back to Colwyn Bay after initially moving back in January 2016.

This will be the first time that manager Niall McGuiness will be working with Cory Williams but the Rhyl manager is aware of the quality of the 21 year-old after speaking to the Rhyl website.

“I am more than confident he will suit our philosophy moving forward this season. Cory is a quick attacking threat and no doubt will add goals to the club and I am looking forward to working with him throughout the season.”

Diego Alvarado, who’s brother Andreas Alvarado joined the club last season before being ruled out with an injury joins the club from Abergele Town.

He can operate on both flanks as well as being able to fill in as a left-back.

McGuiness also commented on the signing of Alvarado.

“Diego knows what it means to play for Rhyl FC having supported them growing up and being local and I feel it’s vitally important we have players in our side like this in the season to come and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
