Ex-Premier League star signs for Lakesiders
Colin Caton has begun his January Transfer Window Shopping and has today secured the services of Drogheda born Sean Thornton.
The 30 year old midfielder who played for Sunderland 11 times in the Premier League is no stranger to the Welsh Premier after a spell at Aberystwyth where he made 24 appearances and scored 8 goals.
Thornton who represented his homeland Republic of Ireland at U16, U18, U19 and U21 level has also appeared for Tranmere Rovers, Blackpool, Doncaster Rovers, Leyton Orient, Shrewsbury and Conwy Borough.
Sean will wear the number 9 shirt.
Caton had this to say about the signing:
"Sean is a major signing for us. He has been training with us for 11 weeks and is such a gifted footballer - he will give us much needed goals from midfield".
Welcome to Maes Tegid Sean!
