THERE’S to be a brand new Rule for the Lakesiders this season.

Bala Town were last week pleased to announce the acquisition of Glenn Rule.

He became Town’s fifth signing of the summer transfer window, moving to Maes Tegid from Airbus UK Broughton.

The 27-year-old began his career at Chester and he made 28 appearances during his debut season.

A move to Colwyn Bay followed in 2010, before switching to Stalybridge Celtic, where he made 30 starts.

In 2011, Rule signed for Airbus, spending four years with the Wingmakers and appearing over 100 times for The Airfield outfit.

In June 2015, he signed for Stockport County and then spent 18 months at the club, before re-signing for Airbus back in January.

A midfielder who can also play at full back, Rule is strong on the ball, has plenty of experience within the Welsh Premier League and he is a very useful addition to the Town squad.

Rule will wear the number 17 shirt for the Lakesiders.
