Cllr Clive Jones
Merthyr Town Football Club are delighted to announce that goalkeeper Jamie Cogman has agreed terms with the Club ahead of the 2023/24 season.
Cogman spent 4 seasons at Brisbane City FC and then moved onto Brisbane Roar’s Academy set-up before making the move across the other side of the world to Wales to sign with Cardiff City.
Jaimie signed as an apprentice with the Bluebirds back in 2019 and spent two years training and playing in the Under 18 side.
During his tenure at the Cardiff City Stadium, he represented the U18 team, U23 team, and trained with the first team and was on the national team's radar for some time.
Cogman arrived at the Martyrs two months into last season. He quickly became the club's number one a month later and became an integral part of Town's XI.
The shot-stopper scooped up Supporters Player of the Season and Junior Martyr's Player of the Season at the end of season awards, as a result of his performances last campaign. Now, he will be eager to follow up his good form again next season.
"Jaimie had an excellent season by all accounts," said Manager Paul Michael.
"He looks a very promising young goalkeeper, he did so well that he attracted some attention from league clubs.
"He thoroughly enjoyed his season with the club where I know the supporters had a big impact on his desire to stay next season."
