- Treowen Stars re-sign experienced winger


DIVISION Three strugglers Treowen Stars have re-signed experienced winger David Hurley, who played a leading role in Risca United's rise back to Welsh League's top flight.
Hurley links up again with the Bush Park outfit in time to make his debut second time around against visiting Trefelin on Saturday.
He began his career with Pentwynmawr Athletic in the Gwent County League before joining Risca as a youth-team player, but left to play for Treowen after becoming unsettled.
However when former player-manager Paul Michael (now boss of English outfit Cinderford Town) took over Risca, one of his first recruits was Hurley.
He had a brief spell with Pontypridd Town, but was an outstanding performer on his return as Risca shot through the divisions.
One player, however, leaving Treowen is 18-year-old forward Kyle Thomas, who has put pen to paper for Division Three rivals Panteg.
Wales schoolboy cap Thomas was a prolific goalscorer at junior and youth-team levels, could be in line to start Saturday's clash with visiting county rivals Caerleon.
Meanwhile Division One side Monmouth Town have brought in former Newport County academy player and Wrexham trainee Bradley Flay.
Capped at schoolboy and university levels, he spent three years with Cardiff City before joining County, who released him after 12 months.
He bounced back by earning himself a place at the prestigious Nike Academy (run by the English Football Association and based in Burton upon Trent) and that led to him gaining a professional contract with Wrexham
A spell at with north Wales outfit Buckley Town followed, but he was released due to university commitments and now finds himself at Monmouth, who continue their bid to avoid relegation to the second tier on Saturday against hosts Cambrian & Clydach.
