Newtown’s loss was our gain

Newtown have announced that they will reform a reserve side next season, but local sides will fight to hold on to the players that were left in the lurch last season.
The Robins pulled their second string this season, allowing clubs around the Newtown area to pounce on the players suddenly without a club.
But they will be back next season, meaning sides like Spar Division Two’s Abermule could face a tricky summer trying to retain their new recruits.
“Obviously when I knew the reserves were folding and we were entering the new Spar League we needed to add quality to the side to compete,” said Abermule boss Steven Morris.
“We signed Nick Mumby, Dan Baker, Chris Carrol, James Turner and Martin Lewis who are all good footballers. They have fitted into our squad nicely and are all enjoying life at the Mule.
“Having played at Newtown myself at youth and reserve level you appreciate the facilities that are available to you. But, with the new ground improvement that we are planning over the next couple of years we aim to attract a new generation of players and spectators to build on what the club has already achieved.”

Newtown Reserves will be expected to start back in the Montgomeryshire Amateur League next season and join another new side, Four Crosses Reserves, who have also signalled their intent to form.
