Merthyr Town FC complete double signing of Stokes and Livermore
21 July 2023
Merthyr Town Football Club can confirm the double signings of Tom Stokes and Aneurin Livermore.
Stokes and Livermore, both graduates of Newport County AFC’s Academy, join ahead of the 2023/24 Southern League Premier South season.
Stokes joined Newport County AFC at a very young age and has been a mainstay in their academy teams over the last few years. Following a successful spell within the academy set-up, the 18-year-old featured in the matchday squad of several first-team games last season.
Livermore, on the other hand, is another talented individual who progressed through the Exiles ranks. The 20-year-old made his first start for Newport in a 3–1 EFL Trophy defeat to Plymouth Argyle. Livermore made his football league debut for Newport on 4 September 2021 as a second-half substitute in the 2-2 League Two against Leyton Orient. Following a successful spell at the Exiles, the midfielder was called up to represent the intermediate age groups of Cymru, featuring for the Wales U19s squad for the 2022 UEFA European Under-19 championship qualifying matches in Norway against Georgia, Norway and Kosovo on 6, 9 and 12 October 2021.
After his release from County at the end of 2021/22 season, on 25 February 2023, Livermore signed for National League North club Hereford FC but only registered one appearance during the remainder of the season.
Both players will be involved in tonight’s matchday squad, subject to FAW approval.
