Caernarfon Town who already sit atop the Cymru Alliance, have made their first signing under manager Sean Eardley by re-signing centre-forward Kevin Lloyd from Conwy Borough of the third tier Welsh Alliance Division One.

The Cofis already look in good shape to win the league, being six points clear of second place Denbigh Town with both sides having fifteen games played so far.
Eardley will thus be bolstering goal scoring options to a side which has already scored fifty-nine times this season, seventeen more goals than the next best scoring side, by bringing Lloyd to the club for the third time.
Lloyd first left in March 2012 for Llanrug United due to work commitments before rejoining in September 2016. He only departed the Cofis for the second time, a stint which saw him score the third goal in Caernarfon’s 3-0 Huws Gray Cup win over Flint Town United this year, in June when he moved to Conwy Borough.
Therefore Lloyd is more than used to the set up he will be playing in as well as the quality of football required to succeed in the Cymru Alliance. It has also been announced that Lloyd will be available for Saturday’s game against Holyhead Hotspur.
As for Eardley he will be delighted to make his first signing since taking over as manager of the club in November when Iwan Williams departed to join Welsh Premier League side Llandudno in a head coach role.
When speaking about the signing on the Cofis website, Eardley said:
“He gives us versatility and will be a good addition to the squad. Most of the squad know what he is capable of and I’m sure he’ll get a great welcome from the Cofi faithful.”
