Dafabet Welsh Premier club Aberystwyth Town`s defender Daniel Alfei has become Yeovil Town’s ninth summer signing following a successful trial period at the Sky Bet League Two outfit.

The 25-year-old, who is a former Wales under-21 international, has agreed a two-year contract with the Glovers.

Released by Swansea City in 2016, Alfei was influential at the back for the Seasiders as they fought off relegation from the Welsh Premier last season and he also captained the side in the final run in.

Equally at home at right-back or centre-back, Alfei joined Aberystwyth in September 2016 as a free agent.

Meanwhile, Aberystwyth have announced the signings of former Bangor City full-back Declan Walker and attacking midfielder Declan Carroll.

The duo’s arrival at Park Avenue will bolster Neville Powell’s squad ahead of the Black & Greens’ Welsh Premier campaign.

Walker was rated as one of the best right-backs in the Welsh Premier during three seasons starring as part of Powell’s Bangor City side, making sixty-one appearances and scoring twice before a cruel injury curtailed his career at Nantporth in 2016/7.

Warrington-based Walker had previously represented the Republic of Ireland’s under-19 side and Wrexham in the Vanarama National League.

He has been playing on trial during Aber’s pre-season campaign and put pen-to-paper this weekend.

Carroll is no stranger to Aberystwyth supporters, returning for a second spell in Black & Green.

A prominent part of Tomi Morgan’s squad in 2012/13, Carroll has since gone on to strengthen his reputation as a skilled midfielder with both Haverfordwest County and Carmarthen Town.

He made twenty-nine appearances for Aber, scoring 3 times, as part of a Welsh Premier career total of 109 appearances and 10 goals.

He, like Walker, has appeared during pre-season for Powell’s men and also signed on the dotted line this weekend.

Barry Town have announced the signing of midfielder Ryan Newman, who joins his home-town club from Bovingdon.

Newman was signed after impressing in last Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Newport County.

The central midfielder, who celebrates his 24th birthday this Sunday, arrives from Bovingdon and adds to a strong contingent of home-town players based at Jenner Park.

After spending his early footballing days at Barry Athletic, Newman would wear the colours of both Manchester United and Bristol City as a youngster, before moving back across the Severn to Newport County in 2009/10.

A professional with the Exiles, he would later turn out for Merthyr Town, Kingstonian and Hampton & Richmond Borough, as well as spending time on loan at fellow National League South side Hemel Hempstead Town.

Cardiff Met University haves signed Hereford FC captain Joel Edwards following his release from Edgar Street.

The university describe the signing as ‘a real capture’ for the club after Edwards agreed to join on a BSc Sports Coaching degree.

The 25-year-old captain – who led the Bulls to six trophies in two seasons as well as a Wembley final appearance – made his debut for the Met last Saturday in a pre-season friendly.

Edwards is expected to form an exciting partnership with Emlyn Lewis at the heart of the Cyncoed-club’s defence next season.

Bala Town have announced that Glenn Rule has put pen-to-paper with the Lakesiders.

The midfielder joins from Airbus UK Broughton.

The 27-year-old began his career at Chester City and made 28 appearances in his debut season.

A move to Colwyn Bay came in 2010 before switching to Stalybridge where he made thirty starts. In 2011, he signed for Airbus, spending four years with The Wingmakers and appearing over 100 times for The Airfield outfit.

In June 2015, the midfielder signed for Stockport County and spent eighteen months with the Hatters before re-signing for Airbus back in January.
A midfielder who can also play as a full-back, Rule is strong on the ball, has plenty of experience within the Welsh Premier and is a very useful addition to the Town squad.

Rule follows the arrival of Evan Horwood after his departure from National League side Chester recently.

The 31-year-old is a central defender who can also play on the left-hand side has plenty of Football League experience to his name.

Starting out at Sheffield United, he first made a name for himself at Carlisle United before a move to Hartlepool in 2010 that saw him made over 120 appearances for the Club.

In 2013, he moved to Tranmere Rovers before signing for Northampton Town a year later.

After two years with the Cobbles, he went on loan to Grimsby before signing for Chester in July 2016 where he made twenty-one appearances and scoring once for them.
