CPD Y Rhyl 1879 could make two landmark signings in the form of two former members of the old Lilywhites.

The Journal understands that the newly formed club is set to confirm the signings of striker Carl Lamb and defender Tony Davies, which represents a real statement of intent from Gareth Thomas as he looks to make an instant impression during their first competitive campaign.

Both are no stranger to Belle Vue having played for Rhyl FC in the past before they were wound up earlier this year after failing to find the necessary funds needed to stay afloat until May 2021.

Davies has enjoyed a glittering career across the region at high-profile clubs such as Bala Town and Denbigh Town prior to his time with the Lilies.

His most recent spell was with Flint Town United last season, who finished second in JD Cymru North to earn promotion to the top-flight after Prestatyn Town failed to obtain their Tier 1 Domestic Licence.

Lamb has been a prolific striker for a number of years in the Welsh domestic system, and he could be a real asset to the club as it looks to make its mark from the outset.

The player was forced to miss some time due to a ban, but he came back strongly during a period with Penrhyncoch in the second tier.

Club officials, which consist of members of the former Rhyl board, have written to the North Wales Coast Football Association outlining their desire to begin their journey in Tier 4, although nothing has been confirmed at this stage.
