Bangor snap up former Llandudno ace Marc Williams
Bangor City have announced that they have signed recently released Llandudno forward Marc Williams for the 2018/19 season.
Williams will be a familiar name to Bangor fans, having been a constant threat for the Seasiders during their three year stint in the JD Welsh Premier League, but he has now departed the club for Bangor.
The frontman joined Llandudno upon their promotion to the top flight, and has found the back of the net 27 times during three seasons in the Welsh Premier League. In his debut campaign with the club, he scored an impressive 16 goals in 32 appearances as Tudno stunned the league to secure a third placed finish at the first attempt.
However, the striker has scored just 11 league goals in the last two seasons and the former Wrexham striker has now been released by the club as Iwan Williams continues to shape the squad into his own mould.
The forward is one of a number of players to depart the club, as the club confirmed that Alex Lynch, James Joyce, Danny Shaw, Wes Baynes, Lee Thomas, Ryan Edwards, Patrick Rutter, Sam Hart, Mike Williams and Tom Dix have all left the club.
But, the former Colwyn Bay striker has already found a new club as he has joined Craig Harrison’s Bangor City.
Harrison has made a raft of changes to the recently relegated outfit, including the signings of Anthony Stephens from Bala Town, and the quadruple signing of Phil Baker, Yalany Baio, Lee Owens and Andy Jones.
They join Sam Barnes, Jake Phillips, Les Davies, Robbie Parry and Tom Field at the VSM Stadium for the upcoming season.
Harrison was thrilled to secure the signing of the experienced striker ahead of the new season, “Marc is another fantastic addition to the squad,with lots of experience in the Football League, WPL, Europa league, Conference and conference north. Finishing top goalscorer and WPL PLAYER OF THE YEAR 2 years ago. Also international experience at U21 level as well as semi pro”.
“Marc will not only bring his fair share of goals but also assist as well. He can also play in a couple of different positions; attack midfield,centre forward and also as a number 10 as a top quality link up player. Marc is also a winner and will work hard for the team to help us try and be successful as the team is the most important thing moving forward. You need special players within the team structure to win you games and Marc is definitely one of them players.
I think it’s very important to have goals in the team and with Les Davies, Alex Darlington, Marc Williams, Luke Wall, Robbie Parry and Sam Jones we have lots of goals and experience at WPL level and I’m sure they can transfer them into the HGA”.
