Haverfordwest County AFC have completed the signing of defender Alex Worley from Walsall on a deal until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 18-year-old centre half makes the move to west Wales after a spell in the Saddlers’ academy setup.

Worley was in action for the Midlands side last Saturday, when he featured for the under-18s team in their 2-1 defeat to Morecambe in the EFL Youth Alliance.

The youngster, who captained the team at Ray Hall Lane, was described as the ‘stand out man’ for the Saddlers, providing an assist for his former team’s only goal and keeping the Shrimps attackers at bay.

He also played for the Bescot Stadium outfit this afternoon, captaining the team in a 0-0 draw in his final game for the club.

Worley, who will provide much-needed depth to the Bluebirds’ defensive ranks, becomes the fifth player to join County in the January transfer window, following in the footsteps of Ryan George, Corey Shephard, Jordan Davies and Zac Jones.

Welcome to the Ogi Bridge Meadow, Alex!
