CAERNARFON Town have completed the signing of Jamie Crowther from Huws Gray Alliance rivals Airbus Broughton.

The former Wales Under 18 international started his career at Wrexham and has played for Stalybridge Celtic, Barrow, Connah’s Quay Nomads and Aberystwyth Town before joining the Wingmakers last summer.

Crowther is manager Sean Eardley’s third signing of the January transfer window, with the midfielder softening the blow of Jay Gibbs’ departure for JD Welsh Premier League side Llandudno.

The Cofis boss, said: “Jamie gives us good experience and a voice. The boys gave him a warm welcome in training and I’m looking forward to working with him from now until the end of the season.”

The new signing was set to make his debut for the Canaries in their trip to Ruthin Town which was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

They will be hoping for better fortune when the long-time leaders travel to Caersws on Saturday (2.30pm).

Crowther, added: “I am delighted to sign and just cannot wait to get going now. We have got nine games to go and they will all be important and very tough, but the desire the lads have shown in the last few weeks just shows that they are fully committed to the cause.

“I have played with Gaz Evans at Colwyn Bay and kept in touch and Clive (Williams) was at Bangor when I was up there as well and it will be good to get to know the rest of the squad a bit better.

“When I played against them for Airbus this season the second half was probably the toughest period of football I have ever experienced. Their big game players didn’t really turn up in the first half but after that, they were all over the place and Darren Thomas absolutely ran the show.”
