SIGNINGS SPOTLIGHT – CAERWYS
Tier 5 North East Wales League Division One side Caerwys have kept us fantastically up to date with their signings in recent weeks, so we thought they deserve a feature all of their own.

Goalkeeper Kai is a very welcome new face on board for Caerwys manager Dan Sands.
He said: “Kai is a very talented young keeper who will give us a massive boost this season.
“Another target we identified very early as a key signing for the club this season.”
Defender Dylan was another early target who manager Sands is delighted to bring to the club.
