Merthyr Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of 21-year-old midfielder Jamie Bird.

Jamie Bird becomes Gavin Williams’ fourth summer signing ahead of the Martyrs' forthcoming campaign in the Southern League Premier.

Bird arrives at the club with experience of winning the Southern League Premier as he was crowned a league champion with Hereford United back in 2017/18.

Bird was also a Cardiff City academy graduate as he was handed a professional contract by the Bluebirds at the age of 17, but was then released by the now Championship outfit in the summer of 2017, following a loan spell with Weston-Super-Mare.

After finalising the deal, Bird said: “I’m very happy to be joining Merthyr Town football club and hopefully it will be a very successful season. I’m really excited to get started and looking forward to progressing with this club”.

The former Bull then added: “My main ambition at the club is to secure a place in the squad and then hopefully cement a place in the starting eleven. On a personal level feel like I have a point to prove, I’m a very positive forward-thinking player so hopefully I’ll add many goals and assists to help the team succeed in the Southern League Premier”.
