TNS v Carmarthen
Jamal Easter celebrates a goal at TNS.
AS EXPECTED, Jamal Easter has returned to Carmarthen Town after being released by Newport County last week, just a month after arriving at Spytty Park.
Striker Easter netted nine goals for the Old Gold last season from 23 (+6) Welsh Premier appearances but, after attracting the attention of several clubs in the Blue Square Conference, he trained with Premier outfit Salisbury City in pre-season before joining the Exiles.
When he departed Richmond Park, manager Deryn Brace said: "Jamal wants to play at the highest level possible and he's gone with our blessing.
"If things don't work out for him the door is always open."
A Welsh Under-21 international who was released by Cardiff City in August 2006, he joined Bristol Rovers on loan and played in three league games without scoring and one Johnstone's Paint Trophy game, where he scored a goal against his brother Jermaine's club, Wycombe Wanderers.
He became a regular at Torquay United during a loan spell last year, but failed to impress a new managerial team and arrived at Carmarthen at the end of August last year.
