Barry Town United move late to sign three Abbruzzese, Davies and Snaith


Barry Town United have signed Llanelli Town goalkeeper Oliver Davies, Cardiff Metropolitan forward Sam Snaith and former Cardiff City defender Rhys Abbruzzese. 

Snaith was confirmed on Deadline Day by the club, whilst Rhys Abbruzzese and Oliver Davies were confirmed today.

Snaith could make his Barry Town United debut on Saturday when they travel up north to face Caernarfon Town in their first game of Phase Two.

The 18-year-old joined Cardiff Metropolitan in the summer from hometown team Llantwit Major where he helped Karl Lewis’ side to a Division Two title in the Welsh Football League.

Snaith tweeted his delight on his move to South Wales rivals Barry Town United: “I’m happy to have signed, I look forward to getting started.”

Snaith has netted six times in 18 appearances for Cardiff Metropolitan in all competitions this season, netting in Cardiff Met’s Nathaniel MG Cup run.

He scored against Barry Town United in pre-season. The young forward has been given the number 20 shirt at Jenner Park Stadium. He links up with fellow forwards Kayne McLaggon and Newport County loanee Momodou Touray.

Oliver Davies joins from 11th-placed Llanelli Town, having found himself out of favour following the return of Scott Coughlan, who has started for the Reds since signing in January.

Davies is a former Swansea City youth academy player. He has had loan spells with Kilmarnock, before leaving to join Merthyr Town and Hereford.

The 24-year-old will compete with Michael Lewis for the number one spot.

Rhys Abbruzzese also joins the club as the third Deadline Day signing as he joins the current Welsh Premier League leaders on a free transfer.
