Bangor City have made their first move in the transfer window with the signing of defender Gerwyn Jones from Caernarfon Town.

The 22 year old Bangor-born, but Caernarfon-based defender, recently returned to North Wales after a five year spell in America.

A former Tranmere Rovers youngster Gerwyn played for the Prenton club's youth and reserve sides whilst also representing Wales at Under 16, 17 and 18 level.

Upon his release by Tranmere he took up a football scholarship opportunity with Loyola University in Maryland before joining DC United.

Gerwyn was an outstanding player for his University side earning recognition for representative sides year on year.

He then joined Washington-based DC United before returning home and briefly linking up with Caernarfon Town.
