CAERSWS have further bolstered with the signing of Tom Bowen.

The 26 year old midfielder arrives at the Recreation Ground to boost the club’s battle for Huws Gray Alliance survival ahead of the weekend visit of Gresford Athletic.

The former Aberystwyth Town and Cardiff Metropolitan player joins the villagers having spent the last few years coaching in the USA.

Manager Graham Evans said: “We quite simply need to beat Gresford. Following a run of cancellations we’ve only played two league games in nine weeks.

“With half the season still to play we need to start picking up points, starting with our home games and not relying on games in hand to think where we could be in the table.

“Our recent performances have not been reflected in our results but we cannot afford to feel sorry for ourselves.

“It’s in our hands to get out of the current position and need to start taking the chances we are creating in front of goal which in turn will benefit us defensively.”

Guilsfield will also look to unveil a new signing ahead of the visit of Flint Town United.

Ex-Caersws and Four Crosses striker Jack Harris has joined the villagers from North West Counties League side FC Oswestry Town and will make his debut subject to receiving international clearance.

Manager Nathan Leonard said: “Jack’s been scoring goals and has matured a lot the last few years. He will relish playing at a higher standard once again.”

Penrhyncoch hit the road with a trip to Rhyl set to challenge Gari Lewis’ side.

“They have a good blend of youth and experience, and will look to give it a go,” said Lewis. “So we’ll go there with a game plan, and the way they play, we could get a few chances ourselves.”

Carwyn Jones is still out with a groin strain and joined by Antonio Corbisiero and Owain James in missing out on the trip to Belle Vue.
