PORT Talbot Town have secured the signature of Chris Jones, who has spent the last few months with Gloucester City.

Jones, 24, had also been a target for Carmarthen Town whose manager Mark Aizlewood was unable to match the financial terms offered by the Steelmen.

A tricky frontman who signed a permanent deal with Grimsby Town after coming through the ranks at Swansea City, Jones was loaned to Neath in his native South Wales in January 2010 before returning to Blundell Park, where he was transfer-listed, and promptly returned to the Eagles on a permanent basis. 

Jones, who has represented Wales at Under-21 and Under-23 levels, was voted into the league dream team in 2011 and 2012. 

After three seasons at The Gnoll, he became a free agent following the demise of the Eagles and signed for The New Saints in July 2012. 

Jones spent two seasons at Park Hall, completing a career total of 129 (+7) Welsh Premier appearances which yielded 22 goals but, after being unable to secure a return to the English pro ranks with Newport County, he joined Gloucester on a short-term deal in July and netted 1 goal from 12 (+7) appearances.
