Neath FC can announce their first new signing for the coming season , Goalkeeper Lee Kendall.
Lee started his career as a professional at Crystal Palace, following in the footsteps of his late father Mark Kendall who played in goal for Tottenham Hotspur. A former Wales International at Under-21 level, Lee returned to Wales with Cardiff City before moving into the domestic top-flight with Barry Town. Played 14 games for the champions before a move to Haverfordwest County in 2002 where he later signed a five-year contract, the longest deal ever agreed in the league.
Lee enjoyed six seasons at The New Bridge Meadow before a high-profile move to Rhyl in 2007 and he won the Welsh Premier League title with the North Wales club in 2008-2009 before signing for Port Talbot Town in August 2009 after playing for Rhyl in the UEFA Champions League against Partizan Belgrade. Lee then played a vital part in Port Talbot Town qualifying for Europe in 2010 for the first time in the clubs history. He joins Neath FC for their debut Europa league campaign and is excited about the challenge ahead ” I can’t wait to get started at Neath and I am looking forward to working with the new gaffer , Neath have a big season ahead and I know from having played in Europe before the challenges that lie ahead , its both exciting and daunting in equal measure.”
Neath would also like to announce they have also agreed new contracts for both Matty Collins and Kevin Cooper.
