Trio sign up for the Lilywhites

06 August 2018

With the start of the Huws Gray Alliance season just days ahead, Rhyl’s Director of Football, Eddie Maurice Jones has confirmed the signing of three players who have impressed for the Lilywhites during the pre-season matches. Liam Smith and Barry Torrence are confirmed new signings whilst Aaron Pomeyie has put pen to paper as he looks to build on a number of impressive performances for Rhyl during the 17/18 season.

Liam Smith joins the Lilywhites from Denbigh Town. The young defender joined the Central Park side from Airbus UK Broughton after impressing during a loan spell. The defender made 12 appearances for Denbigh during the 17/18 season. Prior to Airbus, Liam started his career at Tranmere Rovers.

Rhyl’s Director of Football Eddie Maurice Jones commented that “we have strengthened considerably in defence and adding Liam boosts options even further. Liam is technically very good and shows great confidence on the ball, which will support our forward thinking players and help their game.”

The second addition is Barry Torrence who has signed for Rhyl after a number of impressive pre-season appearances. Previously with FC Queens Park in the Huws Gray Alliance he was a key member of their squad which got promotion from the Wrexham Area League in 2016/17.

Eddie Maurice Jones commented that “Barry joined the group late on in pre-season but has already found himself within the group. He is a versatile player who can operate anywhere down the middle, this always is a massive advantage for any manager.”

In addition it has been confirmed that Aaron Pomeyie has commited to the club for the season ahead. The young attacker joined Rhyl in November 2017 and made 10 appearances for the Lilywhites last season. Aaron was previously with Liverpool, having joined the Academy at the age of 8 and with Morecambe. He has also appeared for Runcorn Town and Cammell Lairds.

Eddie Maurice Jones has been happy of what he has seen of Pomeyie so far adding that “Aaron has shown great potential throughout pre season, his attitude has impressed me massively. Aaron is a skilful attacker with frightening pace and he will be a huge asset to the squad. Aaron is currently side-lined through injury but we are confident he is through the worst of it and he should be able to join in training over the coming weeks.”

A popular figure from last season, Danny Holland has left the club to re-join Brickfield Rangers. Eddie Maurice Jones added on behalf of the club “we would like to thank Danny and wish him all the best for the future. Danny has been very hard working during his time at Rhyl, everyone speaks very highly of him as a player and a person and I’m sure he’ll be a success at Brickfield.”
