CONWY Borough manager Chris Herbert has further underlined the club’s ambitions by making a raft of impressive signings.

Cousins Levi and Louie Mackin join the Tangerines from Bangor City and Ruthin Town respectively, while striker Craig Whitfield signs from Newtown.

Levi Mackin, a former Wales under 21 midfielder, brings yet more experience to the midfield, following the recent acquisitions of Nicky Ward and Barry Hogan.

The 25 year-old has Football League experience with Wrexham, and has featured in the Conference for York City and Conference North with Chester, before he joined Bangor last season. He will wear the number six jersey at Y Morfa.

Louie Mackin, aged 29, is an experienced goalkeeper who has featured for Chester City, Connah’s Quay Nomads, Caernarfon Town and Rhyl in the past.

He will be handed the number one jersey for next season, as doubts circle over the future of last season’s manager’s player of the year, Terry McCormick.

Joining the duo will be 23 year-old striker Craig Whitfield.

The former The New Saints dangerman has notched 18 goals in 75 Welsh Premier League appearances for the Saints and Newtown.

Manager, Chris Herbert, believes the additions will help his side improve on their third-place finish last season and bring Welsh Premier League football to Conwy.

He said: “I’m really excited about the coming season now.

“[Assistant] John Keegan and myself had a plan to have our main targets signed up and committed before pre-season starts. We are nearly done now and we will be ready to hit the ground running as soon as pre-season starts".
