Youthful Llandudno keper Liam Jones joins Cymru Alliance side Caernarfon Town
Caernarfon Town have added their squad ahead of the new season as they recruit Llandudno goalkeeper Liam Jones.
The young keeper looks to provide competition for Caernarfon Town’s number one keeper Alex Ramsay as Iwan Williams looks to have strength in depth in each position.
Jones has already donned the gloves between the sticks of the Canaries goal, featuring for the club a number of times during pre-season in the absence of Alex Ramsay.
The 18 year-old was part of the U19’s side that reached the FAW Youth Cup semi-final, as well as suffering only eight defeats all season, winning the rest of their games.
Manager Iwan Williams spoke to Caernarfon Town’s official website, saying that upon signing the Jones that he believes that Ramsay has solid competition in Caernarfon’s recent recruit and that goalkeeping coach Mike Innes and Alex Ramsay will help progress the career of the young shot-stopper.
“He’s been coached well at Llandudno so has all the technical attributes to be able to challenge Rambo hard for the number 1 jersey. He can play, is athletic and his communication skills are up there with the best I’ve come across for such a young age.
Not only are we gaining another quality keeper as part of the First Team squad but also a coach as Liam has taken the onus to mentor the younger keepers in training already.
We’re excited to have Liam on board and I’m confident that under the guidance of Mike Innes and Rambo we can further develop him to become a fantastic goalkeeper.”
Both Jones and Ramsay will be vying for the number one spot in Caernarfon’s opening game of the season as they travel to Mid Wales to play Penrhyncoch next Saturday
