Bala Town are proud to unveil a double signing with Joe Edwards and Charlie Williams both promoted into the 1st Team squad from the Academy.

Following in the footsteps of Josh Jones, Joe and Charlie become the next two players who have come through the Academy structure to catch the attention of the Town management and put pen to paper with the Lakesiders.

Hailing from Wrexham, Joe is a striker who came through Chester’s youth system and made his debut for them back in January 2017. Joining the Under 19’s last year, he made 14 (+1) starts scoring 4 goals in the process. He also has a Welsh Schoolboys cap to his name. Joe will wear the number 20 shirt for the Lakesiders.

Ruthin born Charlie is in his second spell with the Lakesiders. Picked up by Cardiff City whilst in Town’s Under 16’s, the midfielder spent a year with the Bluebirds, returning to Maes Tegid last year. Williams has been called up to the Wales Academy squad last season for training camps and matches including scoring against Republic of Ireland in the John Coughlan Memorial Cup back in February. Starting 14 games last season for the Under 19’s, Charlie netted 6 goals in total. He has been given the number 21 shirt for the season.

Congratulations to Joe and Charlie on your step up to the first team squad.
