Harrison bolsters squad with four new faces

Ammanford AFC is delighted to announce the arrival of four new faces to round off the Summer transfer window of 2023.


The quartet of players, Lewis Rocke, Iestyn Williams, Adam Morgan and Sean Pemberton have all committed their futures to the Black and Whites on the final day of the window for this calendar year.


Rocke has made the move across Carmarthenshire from Carmarthen to Ammanford. Having come up through the ranks at the Old Gold, the defender spent the first half of last term on loan at West Wales Premier League outfit Pontarddulais Town. Having returned to Carmarthen in January, he made six appearances in the JD Cymru South finding the back of the net against Ynyshir Albion in April.


Iestyn Williams makes the switch from fellow JD Cymru South side Briton Ferry Llansawel. Youngster Williams was part of the Ferry Under 18 side that got to the quarter final of the FAW Youth Cup last season, losing to the much fancied TNS.


Adam Morgan becomes the latest arrival from 2020 JD Cymru South champions Swansea University to make the move Westwards following the arrivals of Luke Martin, Harry Huddart and Adam Orme during this window. Morgan scored 7 last season despite the Students being relegated from the second tier and will link up with former boss Wyn Thomas for Town.


The final new arrival requires no introduction to supporters of Welsh domestic football. Having spent nearly a decade at Haverfordwest, the towering centre half bolsters the defensive arsenal at Gruff Harrison’s disposal. After leaving the Bluebirds, the 37 year old had brief spells at Carmarthen Town and Llanelli Town before arriving in SA18.


Meanwhile, striker Jay Thomas and defender Leon Luby have left the Black and Whites. Thomas has signed terms with league newcomers Baglan Dragons whilst due to a change in family circumstances, Luby has re-joined his native Hakin United. We would like to thank both players for the contribution in Ammanford colours and wish them the best of luck in their future careers.
