FORMER Airbus UK Broughton and Port Talbot Town goalkeeper Kristian Rodgers has joined Conwy Borough and could make his debut at The New Saints in Saturday's Welsh Cup third round tie.

The 32-year-old shot stopper made over 40 appearances for Wrexham in a career that has also seen him appear for Sheffield United and Macclesfield Town.

An English Schools international, Rogers also played with Worksop Town and Northwich Victoria, where he played in a 3-0 FA Cup defeat at Sunderland's Stadium of Light. 

He then spent three seasons as first-choice at Port Talbot but left to join Airbus after the Steelmen signed Lee Kendall from Rhyl. 

Rogers then fell out of favour at The Airfield and returned to Port Talbot in June 2011 before leaving the club after completing a total of 163 Welsh Premier appearances.

"Kris is still one of the best keepers in Welsh football and, along with Terry (McCormick) we have the best two keepers in this league," says Conwy boss Chris Herbert.

"Kris has a wealth of experience and will come into the squad for Saturday's game at TNS."
