TWO clubs beat the transfer deadline to sign goalkeepers with Alex Lynch joining Llandudno and Lewis Thomas loaned to Carmarthen Town by Swansea City.
Lynch, 22, recently lost his place between the posts at Chester to on-loan Port Vale keeper Sam Hornby after making 45 appearances for the Blues since signing from Bala Town in October 2016.
The Holyhead-born stopper started his career with Amlwch Town before a two-year scholarship with Peterborough United, where he had loan spells at Histon, Stamford and Brackley Town. After joining the Chairboys in 2014, Lynch had further loan spells with Hayes & Yeading, Burnham and Wealdstone before making his professional debut in May 2015 as a substitute for the injured Matt Ingram in a 3-2 win against Northampton Town.
He continued to deputise as Wycombe progressed from their League Two play-off semi-final against Plymouth Argyle to the 2015 final.
Lewis Thomas has been with Swansea since the age of nine and signed his first professional contract with the club in July 2015. The impressive Wales Under-19 international helped the young Swans to two FAW Youth Cup titles and has trained with first-team keepers Lukasz Fabianski, Kristoffer Nordfeldt and Gerhard Tremmel.
