Ignacio Torres (Bangor City)

Uruguayan 23-year old central defender arrives at the club having played football at a good level in the United States, Uruguay and Italy.

A physically strong defender, with a mentality to match, manager Hugo Colace is delighted to add Torres to his ranks.

“He is a great addition to the team,” said Colace. “He is a strong player who will suit the demands of Welsh football. His attitude is also very mature and his professionalism is superb.”

Torres stated: “I am very happy to join this club and I am really looking forward to starting this new adventure with Bangor City.”

Mitch Bryant (Colwyn Bay to Bury AFC)

Bay have suffered a blow with last season’s top-scorer Bryant deciding on a move to newly-formed North West Counties League Division One North side Bury AFC.

Bryant’s new team is a phoenix club formed following Bury FC’s expulsion from the EFL in August 2019.

In December 2019 and February 2020, Bury FC survived HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) winding-up petitions in the High Court; it still exists as a legal entity but has no league membership.

The prolific Bryant joined the Seagulls’ last summer and shone on his team’s return to the Welsh domestic system, scoring 14 goals and providing numerous assists in the Cymru North.

The much-travelled front man signed a new deal for the Bay in June, but has now opted to try his luck at Bury AFC.

Charlie McKenna (to Llangoed)

Returns to the club after having trouble getting game time due to working away last season.

Charlie has been getting fit during lockdown and is raring to go.

A solid defender who knows how to win games.

Charlie was a vital part of Llangoed’s 2016/17 squad which won the Dargie Cup and Bwlch Car Boot Trophy, as well as finishing runners-up in the Anglesey League.

Josh Phillips (FC Queen’s Park to Chirk AAA)

Classy and aggressive midfielder returning to Chirk after a spell at The Dunks.

Dante Isla (to Bangor City)

Altogether now…..”La Isla Bonnnnitaaaaa” 🎼🎼 🎹🎹🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

City’s seventh new signing of the summer is a 25-year old striker who joins the club following successful spells in Italy and Australia.

Isla arrives at Nantporth eager to perform and determined to make his mark on the league and help return the club to the top flight.

“I am very happy with this opportunity and grateful to the club and the coach, Hugo Colace, for trusting in my ability,” said Isla.

“I will give my all so that we can return the club to where it belongs, which is the Cymru Premier.”

A powerful forward with great strength and athleticism, alongside a goal-scoring record to match, Isla has all the attributes of a quality forward.

Manager Colace said: “There is a reason his nickname is the tank – he is a physically strong player with his physique fitting the league’s style of football perfectly. And most importantly, he is a lethal finisher in the box.”

Bangor City new signings 2020-21: Ignacio Torres, Dante Isla, Giacomo Mello, Eridion Dida, Gethin Williams, Marc Evans, Robbie Parry.

Ryan Williams (Corwen to Chirk AAA)

Defender who was brought through the youth academy of Wrexham and made his full Dragons first team debut against Harrogate Town in the FA Trophy in December 2017.

Has had brief spells at Gresford and Corwen.

Harry Woodfine (to Rhyl All Stars)

Previously with Prestatyn Town Reserves, Harry is a strong player who is very good at holding the ball up in attack and can pull off a vicious shot.

He can also play centre back with his strong build and football knowledge playing to his advantage.

All Stars manager Robert Cunnah said: “Harry has a strong knowledge of the game and we hope to use that to our advantage this season.”

Harry added: “Happy to have signed, great bunch of lads and I can’t wait to get started.”

Matthew Roberts (Arriva Bangor to Llangoed)

Roberts was a key member of Llangoed’s 2016-17 silverware-winning squad which lifted the Dargie Cup and Bwlch Car Boot Trophy.

He returns to the club after joining Arriva due to commitment issues. Matty has been working hard in training and is looking fitter than ever.

Ashton Williams (Gresford Athletic to Chirk AAA)

Midfield/Defender who returns to the club after a successful spell at Gresford Athletic in Cymru North.

FAW Trophy winner with Chirk in 2017.

Previous clubs include Denbigh Town and Coedpoeth United.

Ricki Roberts (Kinmel Bay to Rhyl All Stars)

Midfielder Roberts has signed back for All Stars from Kinmel Bay.

Ricki is a strong and physical player who joined All Stars at the start of last season, but switched to Kinmel in February 2020.

Roberts is great in the air and scored a few goals for All Stars last term from set-pieces.

Manager Robert Cunnah said: “Glad to have Ricki return to the club. Hopefully he can play a good part in a solid season for the club and score us some more goals.”

Dom Powell (to Llangoed)

No, not the Slade drummer – that’s DON Powell.

DOM Powell is a 6 ft 7 central midfielder who joins Llangoed for his first stint in Welsh football after recently moving to the island.

Dom started his senior football at Fleckney Athletic in Leicestershire before moving to Chester to play in their university team.

He also played for Chorlton FC in Manchester during his time at university.

Llangoed manager Mark Thomas is delighted to have Dom on board.
