Ton Pentre are pleased to confirm that the Club have retained all the existing youth team players that remain in the age group from last season, together with the excellent news that the Bulldogs have added Corey Shephard to the squad from Newport County.
Shephard, who has been a youth team scholar at both Cardiff City and Newport County, has been quickly snapped up by manager Ryan Betteney who is delighted to get his man early in pre-season.
Betteney said: “We are extremely proud to be able to attract a player of Corey’s ability to Ton Pentre and we cannot wait to get working with him and the other lads in pre-season.
“Sheppy will bring bags of valuable experience and knowhow to the side in a key area of the pitch, which we hope will rub off on the rest of the squad.”
The youth will be holding an open training session on Monday 25th July at Ton Pentre AFC, for any potential players wishing to attended. If you’d like to attend please contact manager Ryan Betteney – 07773 265395 or TonPentreAFC.Youth@gmail.com.
Retained list: Cameron Hodder, Jack Weaver, Ashton Kinsey, Keiran Bassett, Callum Westcott, Corey Shephard, Kurt Hodges, Liam Jones, Jamie Coombes, Brandon Coombes, Nicky Rees.
