Afan Lido have signed experienced goalkeeper, Kristian Rogers, whilst Chris Curtis who has played in all of Lido's League matches this season, has left to join Welsh League side Goytre.

Rogers arrives from Conwy Borough, for whom he made one appearance, against Welsh Premier League side TNS in the Welsh Cup. In that game Rogers was outstanding for the Musselmen.

The ex-Wrexham stopper was present at the Steeltown derby over Christmas when Port Talbot beat Lido at the GenQuip Stadium and he had already agreed to join the League's bottom club when the window re-opened.

Ironically Rogers will make his Lido debut against one of his former clubs when his new side travels to the Airfield next Tuesday evening for a re-arranged League clash.

Rogers, 32, who is based in Cardiff will wear the number 1 shirt vacated by Curtis and lists Conwy Borough, Wrexham, Sheffield United, Worksop, Northwich, Airbus and Port Talbot Town as his former clubs.
