Port Talbot Town re-sign experienced Welsh Premier League defender Belle

Port Talbot Town have completed the signing of experienced defender Cortez Belle, which sees the centre half return for a third spell with the club. 

Belle played and scored in a friendly for the side in a 3-2 win against AFC Llwydcoed on Saturday as he made his third debut for the Steelmen.

The experienced Welsh League defender is already known to the Division One outfit’s fans given he has already had two spells at the club previously. Belle joined initially in 2013, before leaving for Carmarthen Town and then rejoined in January 2015 for a six months stint that ended at the end of the 2014-2015 Welsh Premier League season.

The player had joined Taffs Well last summer, but before the start of the season he linked up with Gwent County Division Three side St Julians.  

He had been on trial at fellow Division One side Goytre as he played in a pre-season friendly for them as he came up against his former side Newport County in a 1-1 draw.

The player has also spent time in the English pyramid with clubs like Merthyr Tydfil, Newport County and Chester City to name a few, where he made a name for himself as a tough-tackling centre-half.

However, he is back at the club he has spent the most of his time with in Wales, despite having stints with both Llanelli and Carmarthen  Town in the top flight.

Belle is likely to form a new centre back partnership with Rhys Owen, who has also returned to the club for a second spell after spending three years at Ammanford, who he joined from Caerau.

Fans will be hoping the duo, who both netted in the win over Llwydcoed, will be able to form a solid partnership at the heart of their defence if they are to have any success this coming season.
