13 of the latest North Wales football signings (575-587)

James Jones (Prestatyn Town to CPD Y Rhyl 1879)

Twin brother of Alex Jones, the former Rhyl and Prestatyn Town midfielder now at Flint Town United.

James is a super-fit defender who can also be effective in an advanced role.

He is the latest player to leave Prestatyn Town’s 2019-20 Cymru North title-winning squad.

1879 manager Gareth Thomas said: “James is someone we have been interested in since I got the role and when he became available the other week it was a no brainer to bring him here.”

Nic Bould (Mynydd Llandegai to Mochdre Sports)

Highly-rated goalkeeper with Welsh Premier experience.

Nic made his WPL debut for Caernarfon Town on December 1, 2018, when he replaced sent off keeper Alex Ramsay in the second half of a 2-2 draw with Llanelli.

Based in Colwyn Bay, the 25-year-old has also represented Bangor City.

Last season he was at Mynydd Llandegai, where he made a name for himself by coming up for a corner and scoring in stoppage time to rescue a draw at Denbigh Town.

He decided to leave Llandegai in the summer and now has a chance to shine at Mochdre, where younger brother Peter also plays.

Luke Nichols (Llandudno Academy/Swifts U-16’s to Llandudno Amateurs)

Talented youngster Luke has signed for Llandudno Amateurs, where he hopes to make his senior football debut when the season starts.

A 16-year-old winger, he possesses great energy and pace.

Luke played in a couple of in-house games for Amateurs previously and impressed, scoring and creating a number of goals.

He has been extremely keen to be part of the club and has shown his willingness to learn and work hard during training.

The new signing joins from Llandudno Academy and Llandudno Swifts under-16s.

Carter Costello (to Prestatyn Town)

Previously played at Rylands and Vauxhall Motors.

Carter is a centre half who is as good on the ball as he is in the tackle.

Matty Roberts (Llandudno Amateurs to Mochdre Sports)

Glad someone did a spell check on the sponsor’s name! All the best Matty

Joins from Llandudno Amateurs. Matty possesses a sweet left foot and is comfortable anywhere on the left or in the centre of midfield.

His versatility and experience will be a great asset for Mochdre this season.

River Humphreys (to Prestatyn Town)

Played in Welsh Premier for Bangor City in 2016-17 after signing from fellow North Wales club Cefn Druids.

Humphreys was sent off within the first 20 minutes of his City debut against Newtown. The red card decision for a swinging arm looked harsh.

Went on to make five more appearances for Bangor before joining Widnes in November 2016. Later moved on to Radcliffe Borough, Runcorn Linnets and Witton Albion.

Previously a runner-up on TV competition Wayne Rooney’s Street Striker, River began his footballing career as an academy player firstly at Everton, then Wrexham.

He then had a spell at Warrington Town before signing for AFC Liverpool in 2013, where he made over 100 appearances.

River moved to Runcorn Linnets in 2014, and was voted Supporters’ Player of the Year in 2015/16.

He was crowned winner of the Fiat Professional Tradesman Trials 2016.

The competition aimed to find a current tradesman who has the talent to make it as a professional footballer in the English Football League.

River elected to spend his one-month trial with League One club Rochdale, featuring in a number of pre-season friendlies.

Following the conclusion of his trial, River had two brief spells in the Welsh Premier at Cefn Druids and Bangor.

He now joins Prestatyn with the reputation of being one of the best central defensive players in north west football circles.

James Kane (Llandudno Amateurs to Mochdre Sports)

Another signing from Llandudno Amateurs.

James, like Matty Roberts, was an important member of the Amateurs side where he was known as Mr Reliable.

It is hoped he can continue this reputation at Mochdre this season.

Mike Williams (to Llandudno Amateurs)

Experienced midfielder who returns to the game after 18 months out with a knee injury.

Made his comeback on the pitch after a long lay-off in Saturday’s 5-4 win over Rhuddlan Town.

He has previously played for Llandudno Athletic and Llandudno Albion, where he won the NWCFA Junior Cup and other honours.

Joseph Halligan (to Prestatyn Town)

Centre forward who has attracted a lot of attention from non league clubs. Nicknamed Jobo.

Asa Thomas (to Trearddur Bay Bulls)

Great signing for the Bulls – Anglesey’s most famous striker who has 514 career goals to his name and will not be 30 until April 11 next year.

Scored 112 goals in 47 appearances in the 2010-11 season with Trearddur Bay United.

Has also been a prolific marksman with Holyhead Town, Holyhead Gwelfor Athletic, Morawelon and Gaerwen.

This signing was covered in a bigger story on Grassroots North Wales, but we are recording it here too.

Andy Marshall (City of Liverpool to Prestatyn Town)

Young goalkeeper who has been playing for City of Liverpool over the last few years.

Great shot stopper expected to prove a very good signing for Prestatyn.

Kane Williams (Abergele to Mochdre Sports)

The beard to be feared? Good luck Kane Williams

Williams arrives at Mochdre having played last season for Abergele.

Kane is an athletic centre half who is powerful in the air and doesn’t shy away from a tackle. A great addition to the squad.

Josh Brizell (to Prestatyn Town)

It’s just like watching Brizell!

Ex-Colwyn Bay, Rochdale, Hyde United, Telford and Marine player.

Liverpool=born Josh is a right sided defender who likes to attack and has great experience from playing with a number of well respected clubs.
