Prestatyn Town management duo continue recruitment drive of newlook Seasiders
Leon Field and Ryan Turner have continued to put their stamp down at Bastion Gardens as Prestatyn as the number of new faces continues to arrive.
The club had been hit by a number of departures to both the Welsh Premier League and to Cymru Alliance League rivals, but have since added to their new-look squad as a new era begins at Prestatyn Town.
The newly-appointed management duo has looked to their former club Kinmel Bay, for five new signings. Cerrigydrudion duo Ciaran Jones and Nidian Jones have also joined.
Ben Cawley, Ben Hoult, Dave Collins, Jack Hoult and James Hay all join from the Welsh Alliance League outfit.
Front-man Cawley said to PTFCOnline.co.uk: “The lads coming in are incredibly hard working. I think this team is going to surprise a lot of people.”
“It feels great to be representing my hometown again. I’ve grown a lot as a player since I was last here, and I’m excited to get out on the pitch and show that.”
Most recently, defender Diego Alvarado joined. The 26-year-old has previous experience for both Abergele Town and Wrexham. He spent last season at Prestatyn’s local rivals Rhyl.
He operates as a left-back but can also play as a winger, on both flanks.
There is also international experience arriving at Bastin Gardens. Wales U18’s defender Daniel Roberts joins having already played senior football for Llandudno Junction. He played for the Connah’s Quay Nomads U19’s setup last season.
“Getting Dan on board from Nomads is a fantastic move for the club. He already has massive amounts of experience for a lad of his age.
“He’s a player that’s been on our radar for quite a while, so we’re well aware of his quality on and off the ball, and what he will bring to the side this season.”
Staying with Prestatyn Town is local talent in Aaron White, Elliot Lloyd, Lewis Pierce, Macauley Taylor and Michael Foulkes. They were all a part of Town’s championship-winning reserve side and now look to make the step up to the first team.
Forward Macauley Taylor said to PTFCOnline.co.uk in the confidence in making the step up to senior football: “We know we’re good enough. We definitely have the quality to compete. There’s a unity in this team and we’re eager to get out there and play.”
