Llandudno announce three new signings, as Iwan Williams makes first moves in transfer market
Llandudno Town have confirmed the signings of three players, as Iwan Williams dips into the transfer market for the first time as Llandudno boss, after making the move from Caernarfon back in November.
Ahead of the crucial final two games in Phase One, where Tudno are pushing for a Top Six spot, the club have added Marc Evans to their ranks, along with both assistant manager Matty Williams and manager Iwan Williams being registered for the remainder of the season.
Marc Evans returns to Llandudno, after previously plying his trade with the club before making a switch to play in New Zealand originally after helping guide the North Wales outfit to the Huws Gray Alliance title in 2014/15. After netting an impressive 25 goals in 32 league games that season, the striker decided to move to New Zealand before Llandudno’s first outings in the JD Welsh Premier League, as he linked up with Melville AFC.
He managed to continue his purple patch of form in the Southern Hemisphere, bagging 21 goals in 17 outings for the club, before returning to the Seasiders in January 2016. He then made the switch back to New Zealand, but is now back with Tudno once more, under the tutelage of Iwan Williams this time, however.
In addition to Evans’ return, manager and assistant manager Iwan and Matty Williams have been registered to play for the club, whilst they continue to look for new signings to bolster the squad in the wake of recent injuries.
“We, unfortunately, lost Ryan Edwards to a nasty ankle injury against Bangor which is a blow so we need to look to strengthen further. We are actively working hard behind the scenes to freshen things up and bolster the current squad, and we are hopeful that a further signing could be announced as early as tomorrow which would strengthen our defensive and midfield options” the manager told the Llandudno website.
Marc Evans has also received international clearance and is free to play against Bala Town this weekend if selected, as Tudno aim to secure a top half finish come to the end of Phase One.
