THEY'VE been busy strengthening the ranks over at Maes Tegid.

Bala Town have made a trio of new acquisitions during the January transfer window.

Signing for the Lakesiders is left midfielder Louis-Augustin Malandjou Kondjo.

Frenchman Kondjo, 25, was born in Paris and he has been training with the Lakesiders for the last couple of months, impressing the Town management in the process.

He started out at Nottingham Forest, playing for the U-18s and U-21s before signing for Anagennisi Derynias in Cyprus.

Spells at Akritas Chlorakas (Cyprus), SC Salgueiros (Portugal) and AD Sanjoanense (Portugal) followed before he signed for the Lakesiders.

Kondjo will wear the number 24 shirt for Town.

In addition, Bala unveiled Oliver Shannon as their second signing of the winter transfer window.

The 24-year-old midfielder is an Everton youth product, who won the 2013-14 Youth Premier League title.

Shannon made the decision to ply his trade at football in the USA after his release from the Toffees, joining Clemson University in South Carolina.

He spent four years at Clemson, where he was co-captain for two years, scoring 13 goals in 82 appearances.

He was then signed by Atlanta United in the SuperDraft in February 2018, and he made 27 appearances in the MLS making 27 appearances, scoring once.

Bala Town manager Colin Caton said: "Ollie is a talented player who will add strength and depth to our midfield.

"I tried to sign him in the summer, but he chose to go a different direction with his work career and is now available to play regularly, knuckle down and fight for a place. He will add to our midfield options."

Shannon will wear the number 23 shirt.

In further good news for Bala, the club has also announced the signing of goalkeeper Harri Lloyd.

Signing from Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant, he hails from Llansilin.

The 22-year-old spent three years at Cardiff Met University and made first team starts in 2018 for the Archers.

He is no stranger to the Town set up as he joined the Academy in the summer as goalkeeping coach, and has been working with the first team squad since October.

Lloyd will wear the number 30 shirt for the Lakesiders.
