“He will have to adapt quickly to the Welsh league and I look forward to seeing him develop.

"David is an excellent signing with lots of experience in the Welsh Premier League and playing in Europe. Work commitments kept him out last year, but he is an exceptionally fit lad anyway.

“Pav is a strong midfield player who had a brief spell with us before. He is tough tackling and good on the ball, but we need to get him fit in pre-season and get him back to playing regular first-team football.

“Massimo is a very strong, extremely fit player and can play left back, right back and central midfield. He grew up through the Roma academy so has great grounding from that and was Mr Reliable during my time at Mosta.
