Merthyr Town Football Club are delighted to announce the re-signing of winger Ben Swallow ahead of the clubs forthcoming campaign in the Southern League Premier South.

Barry-born winger Swallow, 31, re-joins the Martyrs after a brief spell with Redditch United, following the club's suspension of last season. Since joining the club originally on loan in 2019, he has made 36 appearances for the Merthyr, cementing some superior performances in his time at The Met Coaches Stadium. 

Swallow, a Wales semi-pro international, spent seven years in Cardiff’s youth development programme before being released and moved on to Bristol Rovers.

The attacking midfielder has also played for Newport County, Taunton Town, Bridgwater Town, Chippenham Town, Mangotsfield United, Bath City, York City, Bromley, Dartford, Havant & Waterlooville and Margate Town.

Swallow was also one of the heroes that helped Newport County FC earn promotion to the Football League in 2013, scoring two goals in 23 appearances. He was not, though, part of the matchday squad when Newport won the Conference Premier play-off final against Wrexham at Wembley Stadium.

Speaking on the signing, manager Dean Clarke said: "I'm absolutely delighted to get Ben's signature over the line. He is a player that I've always admired due to his work ethic, professionalism and class. He's a well experienced individual, who I'm sure many of the young lads in the squad will look up to. "
