Llandudno make sign attacking duo Harry and Owen

Forward John Owen has returned to Maesdu Park, after leaving Aberystwyth Town, whilst Bangor City forward George Harry has also joined him at Llandudno.

The 25-year-old left Llandudno in January of last year, joining Aberystwyth Town, where he reached the Welsh Cup final with the Black and Greens. Harry had been on trial with Llandudno after leaving Nantporth and has earned a deal with Iwan William’s side.

It now means that Llandudno has four Wales C internationals in their squad, having signed Kai Edwards and Mike Pearson, as well as already having Toby Jones at the club.

Owen was part of the Llandudno side that played in the Europa League against Swedish side Goteborg. Owen had been a long-term target, having been a former teammate of the Llandudno manager back at Caersws.

He began his career at Bangor City, before a loan move to Conwy Borough. He then joined Rhyl, before settling at Llandudno. Owen has made 95 appearances in the Welsh Premier League, with 18 appearances and one assist.

“He has everything a modern day forward requires. He’s strong, quick, skilful, powerful and has explosiveness in abundance,” said Williams to LlandudnoFC.co.uk on the signing of Owen.

He’s no stranger to our supporters and to have him back amongst us is fantastic news for everyone connected to Llandudno Football Club, as he has stated himself that he has unfinished business here.”

Harry is a former Wrexham youth academy product, who moved on to Bangor City last summer. He made 16 appearances for the Citizens last season, scoring twice. He also has six National League appearances with Wrexham to his name, scoring once.

“I and my Management Team are excited to see George develop further as he’s still only twenty years of age, but again is as clinical as anyone I’ve seen in front of goal. We’re hoping that George can take his pre-season form into the Welsh Premier League where I’m sure he’ll excel” said Williams.

Former Caernarfon Town midfielder Jay Gibbs has left the club due to commitments.
