Iwan strengthens with Attacking Duo Acquisition

Llandudno Football Club have strengthened their attacking options with the acquisition of George Harry and John Owen.

Manager Iwan Williams told the club's official website;

"I’m delighted to announce that today we have signed George Harry from Bangor City and John Owen re-joins from Aberystwyth.

"George has been with us since the start of pre-season and has been phenomenal. His attitude, his commitment, his desire to do well and his finishing in front of goal has been up there with the best I’ve seen."

Harry spent all his youth career at Wrexham where he then went on to progress into the first team. "He scored a penalty for Wrexham in his first full debut at home against Torquay, and for someone so young to have the character to do that says a lot about him as a player;" added Williams.

The forward spent last season with Bangor City and scored a fantastic goal at Bala in their last game of the season. "Myself and my Management Team are excited to see George develop further as he’s still only twenty years of age, but again is as clinical as anyone I’ve seen in front of goal. We’re hopeful that George can take his pre-season form into the Welsh Premier League where I’m sure he’ll excel."

Williams also discussed the signing of Owen and said;

"I’ve been trying to sign John for three years, ever since we played together at Caersws where John scored thirty-odd goals in that particular season. He has everything a modern day forward requires. He’s strong, quick, skilful, powerful and has explosiveness in abundance. He’s no stranger to our supporters and to have him back amongst us is fantastic news for everyone connected to Llandudno Football Club, as he has stated himself that he has unfinished business here.

"John has been with us for a couple of weeks now and scored two in Tuesday night’s friendly where he looked electric. He enjoys the environment we’ve built and our ambitions matches his own. I’m hoping I can give John the platform to kick on especially after the successful stint he experienced at Aberystwyth where he was no doubt the stand out performer.

"We now have four Wales ‘C’ Internationals in our squad. That goes along with the great balance of youth and experience we’ve also brought in and whom have been working hard for one another throughout the course of pre-season thus far."

Gibbs leaves the Club

In other news, we have sadly had to release Jay Gibbs this week. Jay has been struggling with commitment and with the standards the squad of players we now have here at Llandudno Football Club demand, regardless of the Management Team, it’s frustrating that Jay hasn’t been able to match the commitment required. Jay leaves on good terms and we thank him for his efforts and wish him well in future. "
