RHYL have significantly bolstered their squad with two high-profile signings this week.

The Lilywhites have confirmed the signing of cultured midfielder Ross Stephens from JD Welsh Premier League side Caernarfon Town, and the Huws Gray Alliance pulled off another coup after agreeing terms with prolific Gresford Athletic forward Sam Molyneux.

This represents a strong statement of intent from Eddie Maurice-Jones’ side in terms of their prospects for the second half of the campaign, with the Lilies’ currently on a blistering run of form having won 12 of their last 13 games in all competitions.

Stephens joined the Canaries during the summer from Prestatyn Town and made a number of top-flight appearances during what has been a memorable campaign at The Oval, but he has found chances limited of late and has decided to move on in search of more regular action.

Maurice-Jones, said: “Ross has been a player I have admired for some time and when the opportunity came I had to entertain it.

“He brings lots of experience having played in the Welsh Premier League for Prestatyn and most recently Caernarfon. He is a very intelligent and composed player with great technique and his passing ability is of the highest standard.

“Ross will be a vital part of the team and we all look forward to working with him."

Molyneux has a proven track record of scoring goals on a consistent basis for both Brickfield Rangers and Athletic, and he will add competition to places in a front line that consists of Mike Pritchard, James Murphy and Barry Torrence.

"Sam has impressed on a number of occasions over the past few seasons and shown he's more than capable to meet the high standard of the Huws Gray Alliance,” added Maurice-Jones.

"I'm confident Sam will be a success and relish the service he will get from the players around him. Having previously worked with Dave Norman who spoke very highly of him, we can't wait to get Sam involved."

The club also confirmed that right-back Joe Culshaw has left to link-up with Gresford Athletic.
