Connah’s Quay Nomads sign young goalkeeper Lewis Brass
Connah’s Quay Nomads have signed goalkeeper Lewis Brass, as Andy Morrison bolsters his squad ahead of Phase Two in the JD Welsh Premier League.
The 22-year-old is the second signing of the January transfer window for the Nomads, following the addition of Priestley Farquharson earlier this month.
However, Morrison has now added the young keeper to his ranks.
Bass has previous experience within the professional game with a host of Football League and non-league clubs.
He spent five years with Darlington, before moving to Carlisle United between 2012 and 2014.
The young shot stopper soon was on the move again though, as he linked up with Gateshead in June 2014, but his stint there was short lived, as he departed the club after just five months.
But, he secured a move to Chesterfield FC, with whom he spent one year.
However, the goalkeeper then moved abroad to ply his trade in America. Brass joined East Central College in Missouri, St Louis in 2017.
The youngster has made a name for himself in the States, as he has tested himself in Division One soccer against numerous other colleges.
Brass was voted All Conference Goalkeeper in his time with the college, and was named Division One Goalkeeper of the Week on one occasion.
However, his stint in America has now come to an end, as he has linked up with the JD Welsh Premier League title challengers.
Nomads currently sit in 3rd spot in the league, but are just two points behind league leaders Barry Town United with the end of Phase One approaching.
Brass will be faced with the task of dislodging Danby within the starting lineup. The current number one has a wealth of experience, with over 200 appearances for Chester City and Chester.
The goalkeeper has been at Deeside since 2015, but the 35 year-old will now face the challenge of Brass to retain his spot within the starting lineup.
Brass could make his debut this weekend as Nomads face Carmarthen Town in the JD Welsh Cup.
