Leigh De-Vulgt and Lee John are both set for a 10th season with Port Talbot, with the former completing his milestone in one long stint at the GenQuip Stadium.
De-Vulgt is set for a 10th consecutive year at the club, after he joined the Steelmen in 2004. A product of the Swansea City youth system, he went onto make a total of 30 appearances for his home town club in all competitions, earning International honours at youth and Under-21 level for Wales. The defender was loaned to Llanelli and Merthyr Tydfil during his time at the Swans, but following his release from the club he moved to Carmarthen Town. After two season’s at Carmarthen he signed for Port Talbot Town in 2004 and has been a regular in the squad ever since.
Lee John holds the club’s record for Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League appearances – which currently stands at 261 – but he also had brief spells with Haverfordwest County and Newport County during his ten years with the Blues.
Left-sided defender James Bloom, 21, has also committed for the new season. The ex-Cardiff City and Falkirk youngster made 29 (+1) Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League appearances last season, having originally arrived at the club from Gloucester City in January 2012.
