Robins capture Defender from Port Talbot

DEFENDER James Bloom has left Port Talbot Town to join Newtown.

The former Cardiff City trainee made more than 50 appearances for the Steelmen during his two-year spell with the club, scoring one goal.

He arrived after a stint with Gloucester City, having played for Falkirk and on loan at Alloa Athletic before that.

It was while in Scotland that Bloom earned a call into the Wales Under-21 squad.
The 22-year-old has struggled to claim a regular first team place at Port Talbot this season, and the club would like to wish him every success in the future.
