LUKE Cummings is the second former Neath player to complete a move to Bath City, following in the footsteps of midfielder Adie Harris who returned to Twerton Park last week.
The 20-year-old's transfer will be paid for by the Dave Palmer Memorial Fund which was set up last year by Palmer's employers, Lanes Health, in memory of the former City player and assistant manager and pays for the wages of a young player every season.
"I want to play at a higher standard than the Welsh Premier League and, although I had offers from other Welsh sides, I have the perfect opportunity to further my footballing career with Bath City," said Cummings, who was released by Cardiff City in 2010.
"I can't wait for the season to start and I really want to thank Lanes Health for sponsoring me this season with the Dave Palmer Memorial Award – I hope to do them proud."
A former Welsh semi-professional international, defender Cummings made 27 (+13) domestic league appearances for the Eagles after signing in 2010.
City boss Adie Britton is delighted to have secured the services of Cummings, who can play at right-back or in midfield.
"I tried to sign Luke two years ago when he left Cardiff," said Britton. "He is now much stronger and I believe he will excite the fans getting forward."
