Merthyr Town Football Club can confirm that they have agreed terms with Abubacarr Sama from Goytre FC.
Paul Michael has strengthened his midfield options with the arrival of Sama, who will add real talent to what is going to be an exciting midfield this coming season.
Last season, Sama made 27 appearances for the Plough Road side in the Ardal Southern League Division East, Tier 3 of the Welsh Footballing pyramid.
He has also featured for several other Welsh League clubs including Caerau Ely, despite only recently turning 20.
Him, among other youngsters that have signed for the club during this window, will be promising ones for the future too, but he’ll sure add excitement to the supporters looking ahead to next season.
This lad is a special player,” said manager Paul Michael. “I watched him twice at the end of last season and within 5 minutes of the first game, I was texting smudge saying we need to get hold of this kid.
“He’s so quick over the ground, technically gifted, well balanced, changes direction with ease, he’s an attacking player so so versatile.
“Abu’s not the finished article but he knows that and wants to come here to improve and I believe we can help him continue to develop as a player which Goytre have obviously helped him do this season so credit where it’s due.
“But make no mistake Abu has some talents that you can’t coach and hopefully we can help him with tactical detail and an environment where he can excel. I can’t wait for the supporters to see him play.”
