Reds Boss Bob makes first two signings

Llanelli manager Bob Jeffrey has made the first two additions to his Reds' squad with a newcomer to the League and a returning Red from Haverfordwest County.

Jeffrey has secured the signing of Ariel Mrowinski, aged 26, a midfield player from Poland. Arial has moved to Llanelli from Poznan, where he started his career at Lech Poznan coming through the clubs Academy. Ariel can play on either flank in midfield and is looking forward to applying his skills in Wales. Arial has trained once with the Reds so far and was a guest of the club at yesterday's game at Afan Lido. He is looking forward to making his Reds debut in a friendly to be arranged for Saturday 2nd February. Further details will be announced on this website. Ariel's move is subject to gaining International Clearance from the Polish Football Association.

Bob Jeffrey was pleased after securing his second signing of the transfer window. He said; "As a manager its been disappointing to lose players of the calibre of Corey Jenkins, Chris Thomas, Chris Venables and Antonio Corbisiero. I haven't had much chance to work with these players but they have been a credit to the football club.

"They have to be replaced though for us to move on as a club and I am pleased with my first two signing Scott, a player we all know has immense ability and Ariel, who is somewhat of an unknown quantity, but has a great attitude and is keen to make his mark on the football scene at his new home in Wales.

There will be more comings and goings during the transfer window, but by the time it closes at the end of January, I will plan for us to be in the best position possible for Phase 2 and our challenge of finishing as high as possible in the Welsh Premier this season

Scott Evans returns

Scott Evans has re-signed for the Reds for the third time in his career, becoming manager Bob Jeffrey's first signing for the club. Scott began his career at Manchester City, playing regular youth and reserve football before joining his home town club Swansea City in January 2007. He had a spell on loan at Port Talbot in 2008-09, playing 24 Welsh Premier games and joined Llanelli for his first spell alongside Adam Orme on their release from Swansea City in 2010.

After impressing in 9 Welsh Premier games for the Reds, Scott moved to Kilmarnock in January 2011, but returned to Stebonheath the following season for his second spell with the club. Scott started this season with the Reds, featuring in the Europa League second leg against Kuopio and the league opener at Port Talbot but moved to Haverfordwest County in August.

Scott struggled with injury during his time at Bridge Meadow, but the 23 year old is now well on the road to recovery from a recent hernia operation and the midfield play-maker returns refreshed to Stebonheath Park ready to make his mark again on the Welsh Premier League.
