FORMER Bangor City star Alex Darlington is back in the Welsh domestic system.

The talented forward was sold by the Citizens’ to Maltese Premier League outfit Mosta during the January transfer window, but he has now opted to return to more familiar surroundings after agreeing a deal with newly promoted JD Welsh Premier League side Airbus Broughton.

The 30-year-old who suffered two broken legs within 12 months while a first-year professional at Wrexham and, despite battling his way back to fitness, was released at the end of season 2007/8.

He signed contract terms for The New Saints in June 2008 and was capped by the Wales Under-23 semi-professional side on several occasions.

During a ten-year spell with the Saints, he made 151 full WPL appearances and 91 from the bench, scoring 96 goals. He also made 19 European appearances, scoring three times.

Darlington moved to Bangor City in January 2018 and had scored 14 goals last season before moving to Malta.

He was brought to the club on the recommendation of Stephen Vaughan Jnr, who was on the Mosta coaching staff before returning to troubled City as chairman.

The club reportedly paid “a substantial fee” to acquire Darlington, and they also attempted to sign teammate Anthony Stephens during the window.
