TWO of the brightest young talents in the region have signed for Caernarfon Town.

The JD Welsh Premier League side confirmed the arrival of forward Sam Jones from Bangor City, with Gruff John Jones also joins the set-up at The Oval following a hugely successful spell with FAW Northern Championship side Porthmadog.

Jones is currently part of the Ynys Mon men’s squad that will compete at the upcoming Inter-Island Games tournament and is one of the shining lights that have emerged from the Citizens’ Academy system in recent years.

He made a huge impression within the first-team when he was given n increased role under Gary Taylor-Fletcher, and his performance against the Cofis’ in the JD Welsh Cup during the previous season caught the eye of assistant manager Sean Eardley and the rest of his backroom staff.

John Jones is no stranger to the Canaries having been part of their youth set-up as a youngster, and he was one of the standout performers for a Port side that finished third in the Huws Gray Alliance under Craig Papirnyk,

Eardley, said: “I’m delighted that we’ve brought Gruff and Sam to the club.

“They’re two very good signings and very good players I’m really looking forward to working with. Gruff works hard and the times I’ve seen him play this year he has been very consistent and he’ll offer us a lot of versatility across the back and also gives us a midfield option.

“One of the things that struck me about Sam last year is that he plays with no fear. I saw him three or four times last season, including the game against us, and he’s an absolute pest really, very hard to deal with and works hard, which I’m sure the Cofi Army will appreciate.

“They are both very good additions to us and will add a lot of competition for places, which will be healthy. Pre-season starts in a couple of weeks and I’m really looking forward to working with both of them.”
