Darren Ryan, manager of Principality Welsh Premier club Newtown (and a former Deva Stadium favourite from the early nineties), is hoping to bring a clutch of new faces to Latham Park to bolster his `Super 12` aspirations.

Ryan is keen on out-of-favour Aberystwyth striker Andy Evans, who is interesting several other clubs.

A former Cardiff City trainee, Evans won a Welsh under-21 cap, before drifting through Merthyr Tydfil and Ebbw Vale to Aberystwyth and a £15,000 move to Barnsley.

After service with Mansfield Town, Chester City, Stalybridge Celtic, Frickley Athletic, Belper Town and Ossett, he rejoined the Seasiders in summer 2006 and has notched forty-four goals from 161 games, but has made just four appearances from the bench this season.

Good luck Ryan in your bid to achieve ‘super 12’ status in the Welsh Premier League this season.

RHYL have signed young defender Shaun Dowling, an 18-year-old from Huyton who has been released by Chester City. Head coach Allan Bickerstaff said Dowling was part of the squad which travelled to Motherwell on Saturday. “He can play anywhere across the defence,” said Bickerstaff. “We’re hoping to bring quite a few youngsters through this year. The way things are, we haven’t got a massive budget and that means making the most of some of the younger talent.” Bickerstaff was unable to make the trip to Scotland, but said he was delighted with the result and reports he has received on the performance. “The lads are buzzing after that result, now it’s all systems go for Europe,” added the coach.

Neville Powell, manager of Principality Welsh Premier club Bangor City, has announced that his club captain Marc Limbert will be his new assistant-manager following the departure of Alan Morgan to Aberystwyth Town earlier this week.

Limbert and Powell have worked together for many years in a player and manager capacity and the move is a natural progression for the highly experienced midfielder.

When Limbert was released by Chester City earlier in his career, he played for Powell for three seasons before he received a big-money move to Colwyn Bay.

He then had a spell at Rhyl and won the treble for the Lilywhites, before a switch back to the Nomads for a season in 2006/07 to reunite himself with Powell.

He was instantly installed as the club captain for the Nomads and when Powell joined Bangor City at the start of the 2007/08 season, Limbert followed immediately and was again named as Powell’s captain.

“He knows the game inside out and he’s been very loyal as a player to me, so there was no real decision to be made as far as I was concerned,” said Powell. “His commitments as a player will not change and I think he’s got a good couple of years in him still, especially looking at the way he’s playing currently. This role will allow him to mix his coaching and playing commitments for the good of Bangor City.”

One of the duties that Limbert will relinquish following his move into Powell’s coaching team is the club captaincy.
