The new Seasiders' boss is pleased with the way his squad is shaping up and with the capture of Declan Carroll and Declan Walker last week, the Aber team could have a very different look about it next season.

Young is a winger who Powell signed for Bangor City in the summer of 2015 after previously being with Mossley AFC and Ashton United, where he was nominated for the Northern Premier League team of the year in 2014-15. He joined Rhyl from the Citizens on loan in November last season and impressed in the Lilywhites midfield during his brief spell. The loan was ended in January 2017 but Bangor released him and he then re-signed for Rhyl for the remainder of the season.

Last season, Young's coaching commitment with Crewe Alexandra academy meant that he had limited availability on Saturday's but this may be less of a problem for Aber, who have several Friday evening fixtures.

John McKenna came through the TNS academy and broke into the Saints first team as a teenager. An imposing central midfielder or centre-back, McKenna hasn't played in the Welsh Premier League since the 2014/15 season when he played for Rhyl. After an impressive start to the 2014/15 season with the Lilywhites, McKenna left Rhyl to try his luck in Australia.
He had signed for the Lilywhites in July 2014 from Warrington Town. He has also played for Newtown on loan and outside the League for Colwyn Bay, where he spent three seasons and Warrington.
