Lee Kendall, who once won the Welsh Premier League Title with Rhyl, has answered an SOS call and signed for their Denbighshire neighbours Prestatyn Town.

The Cardiff-based stopper, 31, who announced his retirement in the summer to focus on his exciting coaching career, was a free agent, having left Neath at the end of last season, when his contract expired and he was therefore able to sign outside the transfer window.

Regular incumbent Jon Hill-Dunt was injured on December 22nd in the 5-2 home defeat to Newtown and his understudy Gareth Barker who played the last hour of that match conceded four goals against the Robins.

Kendall's signing suggests that Hill-Dunt will not be fit for this evening's trip to Bangor City, so Kendall is expected to make his debut this evening at the BookPeople Stadium.

Kendall has previously played in the Welsh Premier League for Neath, Port Talbot Town, Rhyl, Haverfordwest County and Barry Town and has qualified for Europe with all of his clubs.

The former Wales U21 'keeper joins a growing list of South Wales-based goalkeepers to ply his trade at northern clubs, joining Lee Idzi (Bangor City) and Ashley Morris (Bala Town) who live in Merthyr and Tredegar respectively, whilst in the Huws Gray Alliance, Conwy Borough's Kristian Rogers lives in Cardiff.
