Lewis Short and John Disney
The 25 year old Disney spent 18 months at Connah’s Quay after making 43 (+4) appearances for The Nomads scoring on four occasions. A versatile player, Disney can play at right or centre back as well as centre-midfield. His previous clubs include Hednesford Town, Chester, Telford, Northwich and Stockport County. Hailing from Cornwall, Disney has represented Republic of Ireland at U17’s level.
Town’s transfer activity continues with the acquisition of left back Lewis Short. Starting out at Congleton Town, he then moved to Crewe Alexandra before spells at Nantwich, Northwich, Airbus and Connah’s Quay. A player that is known for his long throws, Lewis made almost 80 starts in the Welsh Premier League and is another useful addition for the Lakesiders.
Speaking of them both, Manager Colin Caton told the Club Website;
“I’ve been an admirer of John for a long time. He was outstanding for Connah’s Quay last season and can play in a number of positions – midfield and across the back four.”
“It’s great to sign Lewis, once we signed John, Lewis made contact with us to see if we would be interested as he is good mates with John and we couldn’t turn that opportunity down. Lewis has been an outstanding performer over the seasons in the Welsh Premier with Connah’s Quay and Airbus and he will add pace to the squad as he can play as a defender or as a forward wide man.”
“Both players will add to our squad and it’s much needed strength and depth to a small squad that’s been tested massively in the first 20 games. Anthony Stephens is out for the season, David Thompson, Stuart J. Jones and Andrai Jones are all long-term injuries so we welcome John and Lewis to our squad as top players and good lads that will add to our excellent team spirit.”
Short will wear the 22 shirt with Disney wearing the 20 shirt for the Lakesiders.
