CAERNARFON Town will unveil three New Year’s Day arrivals, notably new goalkeeper Michael Jago, when they take on derby foes Bangor City at The Oval today.
Canaries’ manager Steve O’Shaughnessy, acting with the transfer window open to try to halt the club’s slide down the table, has also fixed up two defenders.
Jago is ex-Vauxhall Motors and has recently left the Army, while Anthony Cole is from Prescott Cables and Teddy Whelan from Rossendale United, both in the Unibond League.
With Craig Vernon, Town’s keeper in the Boxing Day 5-1 flop at Farrar Road unavailable, Jago is set for an instant debut and there could also be starts for Cole and Whelan.
O’Shaughnessy said: “I have been saying for weeks that we cannot defend and, not having managed a clean sheet all season, sorting out the back division is a priority.
“After being second best at Bangor, this will be a different game.”
Nev Powell’s Bangor, who have climbed to fifth-from-top, because of a 19-game unbeaten run, add Josh Williams to their squad.
Powell said: “Taking on Caernarfon at their place will not be easy and, while I would dearly like a repeat of the 5-1 home show, I would not be unhappy to sneak a 1-0 result.
“We have a fine bunch of lads, who know exactly what to do, and we are now close to the European places and that has to be our aim.”
