Carmarthen Town add to attacking options by signing Lido striker Mark Jones

Carmarthen Town have signed their second striker in as many days as they resign Afan Lido striker Mark Jones. 

The Welsh Premier League’s bottom side have scored the least amount of goals this season but have strengthened their front line with two players who have excelled in the division below.

Luke Bowen of Port Talbot Town signed for the Old Gold on Friday and has been joined by another former Lido striker in Mark Jones.

Both strikers were in direct competition for the Welsh Football League ‘Golden Boot’ and came up against each other in the Port Talbot Derby last month, which ended with three goals a piece for both Afan Lido and Port Talbot Town. They were both on the scoresheet.

The 29-year-old left Mark Aizlewood’s men eight months ago for Afan Lido. He scored over twenty goals for the Port Talbot time this season.

Altogether, Jones has 80 goals from 228 appearances in the top flight of Welsh football. He has played for clubs like Aberystwyth Town, Cardiff City and Llanelli. Jones was top scorer in the Welsh Football League back in 2009, as he helped Lido achieve promotion to the Welsh Premier League.

Carmarthen Town are currently bottom of the Premier League and are seven points adrift, but could move off bottom spot if they beat Prestatyn Town on Saturday.

The Old Gold are also in the Quarter-Finals of the JD Welsh Cup and will face Mid Wales rivals Aberystwyth Town at Richmond Park.

    Totally beats me why the Carmarthen match against Prestatyn was not chosen for live broadcast.
    It’s probably the most important WPL match of the season.
