JOINT manager Martyn Davies has unveiled another new signing for Alport.

Following the arrival of three new faces last week, 21-year-old Sean Griffiths has arrived at Yockings Park from Market Drayton to strengthen the battle for honours.

Davies said: “Sean is another player I had at Market Drayton and he was one I’d chased for ages, for very good reasons.

“He’s a really athletic and strong player, can play anywhere really but mainly centre midfield or centre half.

“Sean is great in the air and possesses a real turn of pace and he’s one of those players who always gives 110 per cent.

“The fans will absolutely love watching Sean play, trust me.

“He’s also the type of lad who will buy into the group and what the club is all about, so he’s a great addition for us and will add some much needed bite in key areas.

“The squad overall looks a lot stronger than it did a few weeks ago and I believe we have added the right kind of players in vital areas to give us a great chance of pushing for honours.

“Confidence is visibly growing within the squad but we won’t rest on our laurels and still have plenty of room for improvement.

“What’s being built at Alport is a togetherness that most clubs can only dream of.

“We have a squad that’s full of quality and most teams won’t want to play us, so these are exciting times for everyone at Yockings Park.

“We’re making a lot of noise and there’s plenty of interest in what we’re doing over here from clubs higher up the pyramid.”

After his arrival, Griffiths said: “I joined Drayton only in the summer and things haven’t worked out how I would have liked.

“Joining Alport gives me a chance to join up with Slap (Martyn Davies) again and I know a few of the lads already so I’m sure I’ll settle quickly. At 21 it’s really important I enjoy my football.

“It was only when I went to Drayton that I started to become aware of other clubs in the area. I’m still learning about Whitchurch but if one training session is anything to go by, there’s a hell of a buzz here.

“There are a lot of clubs wondering how we’re managing to attract all these good players to Alport and it doesn’t feel like a step down at all.

“It’s a really well-run club with a great fan base. I can’t wait to get started in any position I’m asked to play.”
