ST ASAPH City manager Daniel Brewerton could not hide hid delight after he acquired the services of Mikey Walsh.

The talented player arrives at the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One side from Rhyl in the hope of securing more regular football following a frustrating time with injuries in recent years.

Walsh brings a fine pedigree with him to the third-tier side and links up once again with Lilies’ legend Jamie Brewerton, who is also part of the set-up managed by his brother.

Brewerton, said: “I’m delighted to have secured the services of Mikey, he has great leadership and organisational qualities which will be beneficial to the lads around him, and we know the quality he possesses on the ball.

“I spoke to Mikey and Eddie (Maurice-Jones) on Wednesday morning and they both were of the opinion that he needs to be playing regularly at the minute and that St Asaph FC would be the ideal place for him.

“The transfer was completed by Thursday afternoon which is credit to Rhyl FC and the new Comet system.

“We’re looking forward to working with Mikey and hopefully bringing him back up to the levels we know he’s capable of.”

A possible move back to the Lilywhites’ could be on the cards for Walsh, providing he performs well and stays injury free in the coming months.
