A great addition to the squad as free agent and experienced defender Tyler Garratt signs for Druids.
Beginning his career at Bolton Wanderers academy, Tyler progressed up the ranks and made his debut for the 1st team in the Championship at 18 years of age. He went on to have more experience in the Football League with Doncaster Rovers and AFC Wimbledon.
The majority of his career has been in the English system having also spent time at Stockport County, Wrexham and Chorley. However, after the lockdown, he enjoyed a brief spell at Bangor City FC.
“I know the standard of the Welsh Premier League is very high and teams are battling for Champions and Europa League places. I’m really excited to get the shirt on and play,” he said.
Tyler has shown his quality very quickly in training and has fitted in well with the squad. A composed defender with a good passing range, he can play anywhere across the backline. He spoke to us earlier about the move:
“I’m obviously delighted to sign for Druids. I’ve really enjoyed training with the lads and can’t wait to play. The team we have is better than the league position suggests, and I want to do my best to help the club and others around me to boost confidence, morale and of course our position in the league.”
A great addition to bolster our backline, Tyler’s registration has all gone through and he is available for selection for tomorrow’s match at Barry Town.
More than just a football club.
