New sign­ings for Reds

Llanelli Star - - FOOTBALL -

LLANELLI Town man­ager Andy Hill says he is de­lighted to sign two new play­ers as the club bid to re­turn to the Welsh Pre­mier League at the first time of ask­ing.

On Sun­day the club an­nounced it had se­cured the ser­vices of mid­fielder Kyle Copp, who joins the Reds from Span­ish third-tier side Atarfe In­dus­trial, while the Ste­bon­heath club have also signed Jake Parry, a player Hill de­scribes as “one of the most tal­ented left-backs at this level”.

“Kyle is a great asset for us,” said Hill of the 22-yearold from Swansea, who had spells with Yeovil Town and Merthyr Town be­fore head­ing to south­ern Spain.

“Every­thing about his game suits us — he’s one of those play­ers who can change a game with a mo­ment of magic.”

Versatile de­fender Parry orig­i­nally came through the ranks at Ste­bon­heath be­fore head­ing out to Swansea City, Port Tal­bot and, more re­cently, Goytre United.

Hill said: “We are ab­so­lutely de­lighted to have Jake on board. He’s a real tal­ent and he’s suits the way we play.”

The Reds travel to Old Road this Satur­day to meet Bri­ton Ferry Llan­sawel in the sec­ond round of the Nathaniel MG Cup. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.

They then get their league sea­son in the new JD Cymru South di­vi­sion un­der way the fol­low­ing Fri­day (Au­gust 16) with a home game against Pon­typridd Town (7.30pm).

Llanelli’s sea­son tick­ets, which cover all home first­team games and also the devel­op­ment team’s home matches, are now avail­able to buy. The cost for adults is £70, £10 for un­der-16s and £40 for OAPs.
