MACHYNLLETH have stepped up their preparations for the new Ardal North East League season with two signings.

New manager Richie Evans has swooped to bring Dylan Benjamin and Kamal Lloyd-Jones to Cae Glas ahead of the new season.

Benjamin arrives from JD Cymru North side Penrhyncoch while the versatile Lloyd-Jones has past experience with the now defunct Maesyrhandir of the JT Hughes Montgomeryshire League.

A club spokesman said "Dylan comes to the club with a high reputation for his young age and will be a huge boost to the squad.

!Kamal has come through the Newtown academy ranks and is a versatile player who has been known to play as striker or centre back."
