RHUDDLAN Town manager Wayne Hughes has boosted his squad with the signing of Ryan Potts.

The versatile player joins the Vale of Clwyd and Conwy League Premier Division champions after a lengthy spell out of football due to injury.

His most recent spell was with St Asaph City, and he also enjoyed a successful spell as part of the Rhyl Athletic set-up.

Potts can play either in midfield or attack, and he promises to be a useful addition for Town in the final third following the loss of top-scorer Jay Whitehouse and Mathew Beach to CPD Y Rhyl 1879.

Hughes, said: “Ryan’s got a hammer of a shot and good in the air, he’s a tall lad as well and that’s something we are adding to the squad is a bit more height as we aren’t the tallest team.

“We have only lost two players from last season’s league-winning squad so adding Jake Parry and now Ryan Potts I’m absolutely delighted.

“I’m looking at one or two more to come in, but they need to be able to add something to the team.”

The club also confirmed that vice-captain Liam Handy has agreed to stay on for their upcoming campaign in the NWCFA Tier 4 (East) Premier Division.

The no-nonsense defender has been with Town since their reformation, and his experience alongside newly-appointed skipper Keiran Evans will be vital to their chances of proving themselves in a higher standard next time around.
