BANGOR City have bolstered their defensive options with the signing of Mike Williams from Flint Town United.

The former professional has enjoyed a standout career at the likes of Kidderminster Harriers, Wrexham and Altrincham before injury forced him into retirement from full-time football.

Williams, who also achieved international honours with Wales U21 and U19s, returned to the game with Llandudno and helped them secure a third-place finish in their first ever JD Welsh Premier League campaign, which resulted in Europa League qualification and a landmark tie against Swedish giants IFK Goteborg.

He moved to the Silkmen this summer but has found chances limited under manager Niall McGuinness, and the centre half links up once again with brother Marc at the VSM Stadium.

Director of football Stephen Vaughan Jnr, said: “We are delighted to add someone of Mike's quality and experience to the squad.

“Having played over 100 games for Wrexham as well as a couple of seasons with Kidderminster in the Conference National his pedigree is there to see.

"Over the last couple of seasons he's always done well when I've watched him for Llandudno and he knows the Welsh system inside out. With Stevo (Anthony Stephens) breaking his jaw last week we were light in that area and he will go straight into the squad tomorrow.”

Williams is expected to make his debut tomorrow in their home clash with Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant, where City will be looking for a third consecutive victory since the shock departure of manager Craig Harrison.
