Newtown AFC have announced the signing of teenage midfielder James O'Neill.

"Following his terrific header at Shawbury on Saturday, James O'Neill has signed on the dotted line and completed his move from AFC Telford United to Latham Park.

"The 18-year-old O'Neill came through the youth ranks at the Bucks Head, but has decided to join Bernie McNally's side for the season after being released by Liam Watson.

"O'Neill made his conference debut for the Bucks Head men last season.

"It did look like he would be part of the first time (sic) plans, which was reported in the local press, but this never came.

"The move comes after he made his debut on Saturday at Shawbury, and he is in line for Saturday's game against Guilsfield."
