Port Talbot Town sign former long-serving Barry Town United players Lee Baldock and Michael Hartley

Welsh League Division One outfit Port Talbot Town have acquired the services of former long-serving Barry Town United players Lee Baldock and Michael Hartley.

Between both players, they made over 300 appearances for the Vale of Glamorgan outfit and will add to the experience of Paul Evans’ Port Talbot Town side.

Baldock joins from Barry having made 156 appearances for the club and the versatile will certainly offer something different for the Steelmen.

Baldock first joined the club from Sully Sports in 2011 and has had a six-year spell at the club and helped the club rise up the divisions, as well as being a part of the side which gained promotion to the Welsh Premier League last season – he scored a total of nine goals during his time at the club.

Very much like Baldock, Hartley will bring a wealth of experience to this Barry Town United side. The winger played a total of 184 games for Barry Town United, adding 37 goals in his seven-year spell at the club, which began in a 2-0 win over Garden Village when coming on as a substitute in 2010.

Hartley’s most prolific season was during the 2013/2014 season when he netted 16 times in 28 matches, including seven in eight games.

Both players are no doubt shrewd additions for Paul Evans as he looks to improve on his current squad ahead of Port Talbot Town’s 2017/2018 campaign in Welsh League Division One.
