Llandudno complete loan signing of New Saints winger Robbie Parry
Llandudno have signed Robbie Parry on loan from Nathaniel MG Cup champions The New Saints until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old’s has made ten appearances in the JD Welsh Premier League this season, as well as featuring and scoring in the Irn Bru Cup this season.
This is the second loan spell that Parry has had with Llandudno, where he played a total of three times in Phase Two last season.
Parry’s last appearance for The New Saints before his move to Maesdu Park, was a 4-2 defeat at Park Hall to Newtown, where he received a red card. He has since served his suspension and is eligible to make his début against Newtown when JD Welsh Premier League football resumes from its two-week break.
He can play on both the left and right flanks as well as a striker and had previously played in the JD Welsh Premier League for the Connah’s Quay Nomads.
Overall, Parry has played a total of 45 times in the JD Welsh Premier League, scoring eleven times.
I’m delighted to welcome someone of Robbie’s calibre and ability back to the club. With us finishing in e feel that we can be a bit more expansive going into the second phase and Robbie will give is that with the quality he possesses.” said Williams.
“He’s a Llandudno lad so ticks all the boxes for us moving forward. We feel that Robbie has a lot to give and will have a point to prove at this level so we’re hoping we can get the best out of him as we look to challenge for that 7th spot.
I’d just like to place on record my thanks to Scott Ruscoe of TNS for his and the club’s assistance in getting the deal over the line.”
As well as signing Parry, Llandudno have also promoted U19s defender Harri Jones to the first team.
Jones was part of the U16’s side that won the National Futsal Championships last season and is in his first year at Maesdu Park.
Jones can work as a central defender and as a full-back, providing defensive cover for Llandudno, who are joint-second at least goals conceded in the JD Welsh Premier League.
“Harri is another young lad who has trained with us in recent weeks. We feel that given he hasn’t experienced senior football yet in his tender age that promoting him to the first team squad would be beneficial for his development,” said Iwan Williams who was speaking to LlandudnoFC.co.uk
“It’s also an indication of the vision I have and the changes I will make collectively within the Developmental Squad and the Academy going forward.”
