Connah's Quay Nomads can today confirm the signing of Mathias and Michael Bakare to full time contracts ahead of the start of the new JD Welsh Premier League campaign.
Mathias and Michael Bakare join The Nomads following a successful trial period for the Club, which saw them feature in the 3-0 victory over Flint Town United last Friday. Two of the three trialists combined well as Michael Bakare got on the scoresheet against Flint.
30 year-old striker Michael Bakare joins The Nomads following a lengthy career which has seen him perform in the National League, League Two and FA Cup, playing for teams including Macclesfield Town, Southport, Braintree Town, Wrexham and most recently Warrington Town. His brother, 22 year old Mathias has previously played for Aveley, VCD Athletic, Billericay Town and Stalybridge Celtic.
On the duo's signing, Andy Morrison said "Michael played at Wrexham last season and I feel he offers something different to what we already have - he's very quick and wants to run in behind and scores goals. I feel that Mathias has a bright future ahead of him and going full time will allow him to fulfil his potential."
The Club are hopeful that both players will be available for the Carmarthen Town game pending international clearance.
