Afan Lido have completed the signing of two more players, but two defenders have left the Marstons Stadium.

Both new arrivals are strikers with 22 year old Rameer Outlaw putting pen to paper, having played previously for Bridgend Town, Taffs Well and most recently, Pontypridd.

Also signed up is another striker Rob Spendiff, who returns to the club. He previously played in the Welsh Premier League in 2009/10 with Neath and joins from Briton Ferry Llansawel. The forward came through the youth team at Afan Lido, having also been on the books of Cardiff and Wolverhampton Wanderers. He also played for the Lido in the Welsh League in the 2010/11 promotion season.

The club have also stated that two more signings are in the pipeline, with another one scheduled to sign next week also.

Leaving the Lido is Lee Hartshorn who has moved to Llanelli and fellow defender Paul Evans, who returns to Bryntirion, the club he left in the summer.

The 25 year old Hartshorn arrived at Stebonheath Park to become manager Bob Jeffrey's third signing of the transfer window. Lee started his senior career at Merthyr Saints, before earning a move to Penydarren Park, to play for his hometown team. Lee then had a spell at Cinderford Town in the Zamaretto Southern League before he moved onto Newtown, playing 41 Welsh Premier games and scoring 1 goal for the Mid-Wales side before leaving due to work commitments. Lee resumed his footballing career last summer, signing for Afan Lido, where he made 21 Welsh Premier League appearances this season, the last against the Reds last Saturday at the Marston Stadium. Lee becomes a welcome addition to the Reds back line, able to play comfortably across the back line and his 6'2 inch frame will be a threat at set-pieces.

Manager Bob Jeffrey was pleased with his capture saying, "Lee is a player I have admired for the last few seasons and is someone who can work on his game at Stebonheath Park. He is enthusiastic and wants to play football the way I believe in and I am looking forward to seeing Lee develop further as a player at Welsh Premier level."
