Haverfordwest County AFC are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Tyrese Owen.
The 23-year-old links up with the Bluebirds on a one-year deal, having most recently played for Slough Town in the Vanarama National League South.
Owen, who plays in midfield but can also operate in the defensive line, featured 33 times for Kingstonian in the Isthmian League Premier last season, with the latter part of his time with The Ks spent on dual registration with Slough.
An imposing figure at 6ft 6in, Owen played a significant role in Kingstonian’s 2022-23 campaign, as he netted 10 goals in 33 appearances throughout the course of the season, helping the southwest London side to preserve their place in the seventh tier of English football.
Having also represented the likes of Hemel Hempstead Town, Haringey Borough and Carshalton Athletic, Owen has picked up plenty of experience, and will offer an added dimension to the Bluebirds midfield.
While capable of offering a physical presence in the midfield – something which the JD Cymru Premier demands – his technical ability also catches the eye, with his willingness to beat players with his quick feet being another important attribute.
Tyrese will join up with the club ahead of the start of our pre-season preparations, as we begin to gear up for our first European campaign in 19 years, and we look forward to having him on board for what promises to be an exciting 2023-24 season!
Commenting on the signing, manager Tony Pennock said: “Tyrese is a ball-carrying midfielder, which is exactly what we’ve been looking for, so we’re extremely pleased to get him in.
“His path into football was slightly different, he didn’t come through an academy system as such. But, he has spent time out in Sweden, which speaks volumes of his attitude and commitment.
“Height is an area we aren’t particularly blessed in, so Tyrese will certainly help the team out in that regard.
“Having lost some experience this summer, it was important we went some way to rectifying this, and Tyrese coming in will help to do just that.”
