Merthyr Town Football Club are excited to have completed the signing of goalkeeper Will Fuller from Bath City.
The shot-stopper joined the Romans in July 2021 after impressing during his trial period and featured in the National League South for the club last season.
He began his career at Ipswich Town Academy before being released at the age of 16 and moving to Salisbury City for two years.
The 29-year old joined Cardiff Met Uni, then playing in the fourth tier of Welsh football, in the summer of 2011. He went on to spend ten seasons with the club, making over 250 appearances and helping them to three promotions in four years to reach the Welsh Premier League.
He was also the penalty shoot-out hero in 2019, saving three spot-kicks in the win over Bala Town to see the club qualify for the Europa League preliminary round. He featured for Archers in their European campaign the following summer, proving to be a vital player in Met’s Europa League campaign.
Now, the Englishman joins the goalkeeping ranks at the club with competition from Jaimie Cogman for the No.1 shirt next season.
Will is an experienced keeper with a little bit of a point to prove after a season of limited opportunities at Bath City,” said new manager Paul Michael.
“Having said that he’s been at a very good level behind a top keeper who was also club captain and Will did very well when opportunities presented themselves. Will is a good leader who will command his area, and give excellent info to teammates and his distribution is outstanding. He’s another one who will contribute to a culture of high standards on and off the pitch and I’m delighted to be able to welcome him to Merthyr Town.
“We need competition in all areas of the pitch and goalkeeper is no different. In Jamie & Will, we have two of the best available with contrasts between them and any team who wants to be successful needs this solid base from which to build.”
