RUTHIN TOWN have announced their first signing of the new year.

The Cymru North outfit has unveiled Charlie Williams as it's first acquisition of 2021.

The player has previously been a part of the Ruthin set-up, and although he was a key player for the Reserves in particular during that team, he did also represent the first team in the then-Cymru Alliance.

Williams has also previously been a part of Bala Town's Academy and has also been on the books at Cardiff City.

Announcing the news on Saturday, Ruthin Town's Twitter page wrote: "our first signing of the transfer window is local youngster Charlie Williams.

"Charlie returns to the club again to settle down and enjoy his football, the former Cardiff City and Bala Town player has impressed the management team in recent games."

Confirming just that, manager Phil Hudson, who took over at the club alongside Tommy Holmes last summer, replied to the Tweet saying: "Huge talent and can't wait to see him improve even more once football returns."

Fellow coach Holmes added that Williams' talent is 'there to see'.

Ruthin Town were scheduled to kick-off their Cymru North campaign at home to Holyhead Hotspur later this month.

But, with the latest lockdown rules imposed on Wales, all football action in the region has once again come to halt.

The club has however managed one competitive match recently, beating Conwy Borough 2-0 in the Nathaniel MG Cup thanks to goals from Jamie Cumming and Josh Jones.
