Hill looks to Lo­gan in a bid for ex­tra fire­power

Llanelli Star - - SOCCER -

LLANELLI Town have signed one of the most pro­lific strik­ers in West Wales.

The Reds have added Nathan Lo­gan to their ranks as they con­tinue their prepa­ra­tions for the new FAW Cham­pi­onship South cam­paign.

Lo­gan’s thirst for goals has been a fea­ture of Gor­seinon Ath­letic’s rise to promi­nence in the Car­marthen­shire League over the past few sea­sons.

And while a move up sev­eral rungs of the Welsh football lad­der ob­vi­ously rep­re­sents a chal­lenge, Llanelli boss Andy Hill has been im­pressed with the 27-year-old in pre-sea­son train­ing and be­lieves Lo­gan can take the step up in class in his stride.

He said: “Nathan scores goals ev­ery­where he goes. It doesn’t mat­ter what level, he’s got that in­stinct.”

Lo­gan is the lat­est ar­rival at Ste­bon­heath as Hill puts to­gether a new-look squad fol­low­ing last sea­son’s rel­e­ga­tion from the Welsh Premier League.

Liam Sa­muel has re­turned to the club fol­low­ing a spell with Am­man­ford, while An­to­nio Fac­ci­uto is back after a year with Haver­ford­west.

A num­ber of first-team reg­u­lars have also signed new deals, in­clud­ing skip­per Joe Clarke, ex­pe­ri­enced de­fender Lee Bevan and promis­ing goal­keeper Scott Cough­lan.

The Reds open their pre­sea­son cam­paign on Fri­day at home to Gar­den Vil­lage (7pm) and then en­ter­tain Port Talbot Town next Wed­nes­day (7pm).

Gor­seinon have filled the void left by Lo­gan’s de­par­ture with the sign­ing of for­mer Trefe­lin BGC striker Tom Black­burn.

He has op­er­ated in the Welsh League for the past cou­ple of sea­sons but be­fore that was one of the most dan­ger­ous at­tack­ers in the Swansea Se­nior League, and his goals guided CRC Rangers to the West Wales Cup fi­nal in 2017.

Scott Cough­lan.
