WPL January transfers

C0ngH_bWQAAZ4DM

The transfer window has opened once again and some WPL clubs have been busy strengthening their squads ready for the second half of the season.

gap Connah’s Quay have showed their intent to fight for an European spot by signing defender Kai Edwards from Wrexham.

Possibly the biggest shock so far has been the loan signing of Sion Edwards from Bangor City to Rhyl.

Sion Edwards holds the record for the most WPL appearances in a Bangor City shirt – 228 (+80) apps, 58 goals for Bangor since 2006.

After spending 10 years as one of the Citizens’ most consistent individuals, it will be a strange feeling for the Nantporth faithful to see one of their own wearing the white strip of their main rivals.

Sion Edwards will wear the number 11 shirt as Rob Hughes has left Rhyl FC to move to Australia.

Also leaving Nantporth is striker Jamie Reed who returns to Llandudno six months after leaving the club for Bangor City.

Chris Rimmer has returned to Rhyl from the Nomads, and another joining the Lilywhites is Steve Lewis who re-joins the club after spending the first half of this season with Droylsden.

Bangor have signed defenders Paul Connolly and Sergio Uyi, and full-back Jack Metcalf also joins the Citizens. Striker Oscar Durnin has been released by Ian Dawes.

There’s also been plenty of activity at Park Avenue as strikers John Owen, Lee Healey and mifielder Elliot Scotcher joins Aberystwyth, while keeper Chris Mullock has made his move permanent from The New Saints.

Blake Davies has returned to Forest Green after his loan to Aberystwyth and Joe Clarke has joined Llanelli days after scoring his first goals for the Black & Greens.

Along with John Owen, Nathan Peate also leaves Parc Maesdu to join Cefn Druids.

Huw Griffiths has extended the loan of Corey Roper from Wrexham, as well as signing Italian goalkeeper Filippo Mosetti Casaretto from Serie D outfit SSDRL Rapallo Ruentes 1914.
