Barnton sign defender Ben Alston
Barnton manager Allan Glover has strengthened his defence with the capture of Ben Alston.
Alston is an experienced defender who counts Gap Connahs Quay and Congleton amongst his previous clubs.
Being an ex teammate of Glover’s, Alston jumped at the chance of signing for Barnton saying ‘I have known Allan for a number of years having played together at Connahs Quay and Congleton so it was an easy decision when he asked me to sign’.
Glover added ‘Ben is a solid defender and a lad I have a lot of respect for. He’s an intelligent lad, with a PhD which will add something different to a football dressing room. He is a good talker on the field, strong in the air and loves to defend. He’s exactly what we need’.
Alston goes straight into the squad and is eligible for Friday’s game at top of the table Atherton Collieries.
