Port Talbot could include new signings against Aberystwyth
PORT Talbot Town should have their two transfer deadline day signings available for tomorrow's Welsh Premier League clash with Aberystwyth (2.30).
Scott Young made a double swoop this week to bring midfielder Adie Harris and winger Sam O'Sullivan to the GenQuip Stadium.
A Cardiff City youth product, Harris has previous experience in the Welsh Premier with Llanelli, Haverfordwest County — where he spent two and a half seasons — and Neath.
He has also had no less than four spells at Bath City as well as playing for Hornchurch, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport County and Weston-super-Mare.
A Welsh semi- professional international, the 32-year-old has most recently been playing for Chippenham Town.
O'Sullivan, 27, arrives from Cinderford Town, having previously played for Newport County, Merthyr Tydfil and, briefly, in the Welsh top flight for Carmarthen.
Harris and O'Sullivan both travelled to Latham Park on Tuesday, but did not feature in a 2-1 Word Cup win over Newtown as they had not been granted international clearance.
But Young is hopeful that both players will be available for selection when the Seasiders visit this weekend.
"Adie is a natural born leader which we're missing at the moment so hopefully he will bring that experience and desire to bring the group closer on and off the pitch," said the former Cardiff defender.
"Sam is a player I had at Newport a few years ago and he's still only 27. He's quick and direct on the right-side so we've added two good players to the squad so hopefully they'll fit in and bring us a bit more.
"Aberystwyth are second in the league and are a tough team but we're going into it on the back of a win, so hopefully we'll be bang up for it."
Young is also hoping his new strike partnership of Rhys Griffiths and Martin Rose will be among the goals.
"Rosey and Griff, our top-two, haven't had the best of pre-seasons," Young added.
"They've missed large chunks of it and I'm sure the more game time they both get, the stronger they'll become and the more goals they'll score."
