Ta­lented young­sters Shaw and Davies join Cit­i­zens

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BAN­GOR City have added two ta­lented young­sters to their squad.

Nine­teen-year-old at­tack­ing mid­fielder Bray­den Shaw and left-back Jor­dan Davies, 18, are the lat­est Cit­i­zens re­cruits.

The 6ft 4ins Shaw grad­u­ated through Bury’s youth ranks. He was a mem­ber of the North West Youth Al­liance League ti­tle-win­ning side in 2014/15, scor­ing 13 goals in 11 games, be­fore sign­ing pro­fes­sion­ally with The Shak­ers last year.

De­nied a break­through into the first-team ranks at Gigg Lane, Shaw joined Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley at the be­gin­ning of 2016 fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful trial pe­riod.

Shaw made his Stan­ley de­but at Ox­ford in Fe­bru­ary 2016 and sub­se­quently fea­tured sev­eral times in Stan­ley’s run to the League Two play-off semi-fi­nals, in which they nar­rowly lost out to even­tual win­ners AFC Wimbledon.

Davies has joined the club on loan from Wrex­ham.

The highly-rated teenager hails from Coed­po­eth and has emerged from the youth sys­tem at the Race­course.

He has also been capped for Wales at un­der-17 level.

Both Shaw and Davies made their full debuts for City in last Sun­day’s 2-0 de­feat to Gap Con­nah’s Quay.
