Bangor City have this week announced the signing of Anderson Cayola ahead of the 2017/18 Welsh Premier League campaign.

Anderson, a 20-year old attacking player from Barcelona, was scouted by the Citizens during games he played at the LSA (Learning Soccer Academy) during the last two weeks.

Citizens Manager Kevin Nicholson invited the player to train with the first team and the player impressed.

The LSA. which is led by former Swansea City star Federico Bessone, arrived in Liverpool on June 26 for a tour involving clubs such as Airbus UK Broughton, Connah’s Quay Nomads and Liverpool FC.

Following the pre-season friendly against Skelmersdale United, which City won 3-0, the club was pleased to offer professional terms due to Anderson’s consistently strong performances throughout the trial process, beating competition from a number of clubs in England and the Welsh Premier League.

Kevin Nicholson stated “Anderson is an exciting prospect and another good signing for the club. His addition will further strengthen the squad and we look forward to working with him.”

Assistant Manager Gary Taylor-Fletcher added “He is a player who is unknown to the league and a great addition to the squad. Technically gifted with great vision and speed, we’re really looking forward to seeing him develop as the season goes on.”

Anderson, who’s most recent club was Spanish side CE Artesa De Segre, will now wear the number 31 shirt for the duration of the 2017/18 WPL season.
