Cefn Druids are pleased to announce that they have signed rising star Ethan Cartwright from Chester FC.
The deal, completed on transfer deadline day, sees the 19 year old England C International midfielder bolster the Druids squad in preparation for their assault on Phase II of the Cymru Premier League.
“We have been scouting Ethan for a short period of time because he has a skill set that suits our style of play, he’s technical, has high energy and a competitor on the pitch” said Druids Chairman Des Williams.
“I’d like to thank Chester FC, Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley for their professionalism and help and I think we have the start of a very good working relationship” added Williams
“I’m buzzing to be here on loan until the end of the season from Chester, I can’t wait to be playing with these great set of lads and hopefully win as many games as possible. I’ve had a warm welcome from the players and all the staff and I’d like to thank the gaffers at Chester for this opportunity. The hard work starts now.” said Cartwright.
“We’re really happy as a club and management team that Ethan is going out to Cefn Druids. He’s been a revelation around the place for us this season but due to the form of George Glendon, Declan Weeks, Paddy Lacey and Luke Clark he’s found it difficult for game time. He’s someone we have huge hopes for in the future and we feel this move at this moment is the perfect one for his development” said Chester FC Joint Manager Anthony Johnson.
Ethan is eligible to come straight into today’s squad against Barry Town as the Cymru Premier returns to The Rock. If he is given the chance today, Ethan will be looking to make an immediate impact and help the lads produce a big performance!
