Karl Dunbar
CONNAH'S Quay Nomads have won the race to snap up ex-Tranmere Rovers ace Karl Dunbar.
The Birkenhead-born 19-year-old has been tracked by a host of non-league clubs, including Vauxhall Motors, since his release from Tranmere earlier this summer. He agreed to sign for the Deesiders after attending training with the rest of the squad on Tuesday night.
Nomads boss Nev Powell is delighted with the capture and hopes Dunbar won't be the only new arrival at Deeside Stadium this season.
Although he refused to name names, Powell said his hit list includes three players with Welsh Premier experience and another former Football League player.
"We're making progress with a few other players and there could be some news in the near future," said Powell, who was alerted to Dunbar's availability after a conversation with Tranmere boss Ray Mathias.
A talented performer at right-back, midfield and up front, Dunbar's versatility is certain to boost Powell's selection options when the new season kicks off in August.
Otherwise, Nomads' first-team squad is expected to remain largely unchanged from last season.
The only other new face at Tuesday's training session was goalkeeper Andy Hughes, a giant 19-year-old from Gwernymynydd, who was a first-team regular at Newtown last season when he attracted interest from a number of league clubs.
Hughes says he is looking for a new challenge following the resignation of the Robins' long-standing manager Brian Coyne. If signed, he will compete with David Walsh for the number one jersey.
