Goytre Utd will have no shortage of goals next season, as joining alongside the Ely duo is Thomas Walters who has scored 30 goals for Division Three side Caerau last season.
As well as forward options, Joe Jones who played for Goytre United last season, has rejoined the club following a spell with South Wales Alliance side Cornelly United.
Manager Lee John spoke on recruiting the four, highlighting the sides lack of goals in where he feels the club needed to improve on from last season.
”We’ve worked really hard to recruit these four players which will add real quality and goals to the team. We identified this as our main weakness last season. The four players are really honest hard working lads and all four were in demand from other clubs, so we are delighted that they’ve chosen Goytre United for the coming season.”
