As Ton Pentre prepare for the visit of Bridgend Town at Ynys Park on Friday, 14th September (7.30pm) news has broken that midfielder Leon Young is leaving the Bulldogs.
Ton Pentre officials have confirmed that following an approach from Welsh League Division Two outfit Aberbargoed Buds, Young has been given permission to speak to the club and a transfer will be processed ahead of the weekend.
Young had joined the Bulldogs at the start of the 2009/2010 season from Aberbargoed Buds and this news will come as a blow to Dean Morris who is preparing for the challenge against Bridgend Town, however, the Bulldogs manager can welcome back Lloyd Toghill into his squad following a three match suspension.
The Ton supremo is expected to change his starting eleven following the Bulldogs disappointing defeat to Tata Steel last weekend, when the Port Talbot based club won 0-1 with just ten-men. This was Ton Pentre’s fourth consecutive defeat.
Bridgend, who drew 2-2 with Haverfordwest County in their last match, will have several former Ton Pentre players in their squad for their visit to Ynys Park. Jason Cowan, Mark Crutch, Geza Hajgato and Ryan Shugar could all be involved while Marty Giles, on loan from Llanelli, and Jamal Easter can also cause the Bulldogs problems.
Matches between these two clubs are always an entertaining affair and Friday’s game should be no different. We hope to see you all at Ynys Park.
