Steelmen Signings

Liam McCreesh has rejoined Port Talbot Town from Carmarthen Town and the Steelmen have continued their summer recruitment drive with two other former Old Gold players - Casey Thomas and Keyon Reffell.

Thomas returns to the Steelmen after a spell with Afan Lido, while Reffell is also a former Lido player.

They follow in the footsteps of Liam McCreesh, who has also signed for the club earlier this week.

Former Swansea City forward Thomas first moved to the GenQuip Stadium on loan from the Liberty Stadium in 2010.
After other temporary stints with Newport and Colchester, he agreed a permanent switch to Carmarthen two years later and spent last season with Lido.

McCreesh returns for his second spell at the GenQuip Stadium, having previously spent four seasons with the club from 2007 to 2011.

The combative midfielder came through the Afan Lido youth system and played three seasons for the club in the Welsh Premier League until their relegation in 2005.

After a spell with Haverfordwest, that stint with Port Talbot and another period with Lido, McCreesh played in Australia.

He has been with the Old Gold for the last two seasons, making 46 appearances.

The 28-year-old was voted into the league managers’ dream team and also named Welsh Premier player of the season in 2009/10.

Chief executive Andrew Edwards said: “I’m delighted to welcome Liam McCreesh back to Port Talbot.

“He’s a very competitive midfielder, a locally based player, and it is the club’s intention to sign more players from the Port Talbot area.

“Liam’s family have strong links with the club through his father Gerald, who was previously vice-chairman and who our main stand is named after.”
