NEW Aberystwyth Town manager Nev Powell is betting on a pair of Declans to boost his squad's chance of a top six finish.

Joining-up again with his former boss at Bangor City is Warrington-born defender Declan Walker, 25, who has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-19 level after being handed a pro contract by Wrexham in July 2010.

Walker made 21 appearances for the Racecourse outfit in the Blue Square Premier in 2012/13 but was released and signed for Bangor in July 2013, spending three seasons at Nantporth. He was named in the WPL team of the season in 2013/14, but injury curtailed his time with the Citizens in July 2016 after scoring two goals from 61 Welsh Premier appearances.

Declan Carroll, 24, returns to the Black & Greens for a second spell. He started his career with Tenby and then spent the second half of season 2011/12 with Haverfordwest County before joining Aberystwyth in July 2012. Carroll returned to the Bluebirds in September 2013, leaving to join neighbours Carmarthen after County were relegated in the summer of 2016. He has scored 10 goals from 85 (+24) WPL appearances.
