Pontypridd Town continue to add attacking options after derby day rout

Pontypridd Town have continued to add more attacking options to the squad following the signings of Caerau Ely forward Andrew Smith, Ellis Bellamy and the re-signing of defender Dave Allen. 

The Dragons already boast plenty of attackers in their squad but the club have added a further two players to their front-line to offer strength in depth.

Ponty’s front-line was showcased on Saturday afternoon at Dinas Park after they recorded a 7-1 victory over Rhondda rivals AFC Porth in the season opener.

Luke Gullick and Adam John’s scored twice whilst James Hill and set-piece specialist Danny Hooper scored in the rout.

Also on the score sheet was recent re-signing Dave Allen who scored on his return almost immediately after being confirmed as a new signing on the Friday before the game.

Allen joined Pontypridd Town back in November from South Wales Alliance Premier Division side Canton Liberal and went on to captain the side earlier in the season.

Smith joins the Pontypridd Town squad following five years of service with Cardiff side Caerau Ely, where he joined the club at the same time as Nana Baah did.

The long-serving Caerau Ely man scored twelve goals in the Welsh League last season, including a two hatricks against Dinas Powys and Risca United.

Joining Smith and Allen in Treforest is son of former Liverpool and Wales international Craig Bellamy, Ellis. The young-winger as been at clubs like Cambrian & Clydach Vale and Penybont in recent years and operates as a left-sided midfielder.

Dominic and Damian Broad have been busy this summer in bringing players to USW Sports Park, with former Cardiff City youth Jamal Easter, David Burnett and Gavin Beddard already signed up for the club’s ambitious plans of promotion this season.
