Former Eagles fly to the Wingmakers

AIRBUS UK Broughton chief Andy Preece has captured the signatures of former Neath duo Jack Lewis and Toby Jones.
Following the official closure of the Eagles earlier this week by the receiver, contracted players are now free to join new clubs.
An attacking wing-back who came through the Rhyl youth system and has also played for the Welsh Colleges, 24-year-old Lewis was a regular in the Prestatyn Town line-up until a move to Neath in June last year.
He was virtually ever-present for the Gnoll outfit, also earning a call-up to the Wales Under-23 semi-professional squad, and has now made a total of 128 Welsh Premier appearances.
Jones was a surprise signing by then Neath management duo Terry Boyle and Peter Nicholas after being a prolific scorer with Conwy United in the Welsh Alliance.
But the 19-year-old scored four goals from six full and 18 substitute appearances including an impressive volley in the live win over Bangor City.
