Newport County AFC are pleased to confirm the signing of midfielder Jennison Myrie-Williams on a one-year deal.

The twenty-eight-year-old joins the Exiles as Manager Warren Feeney's latest recruit for the season ahead.

The midfielder began his career at Bristol City, where he progressed through the youth setup, before making his first-team debut in May 2006. 

Jennison moved to Dundee United in 2009 and had a stint at St Johnstone, before returning to the Football League with spells at Stevenage, Port Vale and Scunthorpe United. 

Most recently the midfielder was with League of Ireland Premier Division side, Sligo Rovers, where Jennison was reunited with Micky Adams, who he had worked under at Port Vale.

Following the completion of the paperwork on his move to Newport County AFC, the midfielder spoke about his excitement regarding his move to Rodney Parade.

"I’m really happy to get the deal signed,” said the midfielder.

“I have been speaking to Warren over the past few weeks and he has sold the Club to me. Newport County AFC feels like a Club that is going places and I want to be a part of it.”

“Looking at the players that the Club already signed, it is a very exciting time for the Club and I’m looking forward to playing in a competitive squad.”

Manager Warren Feeney added, "Jennison is a strong lad and is a player that will lift the crowd during games and get people out of their seats."

"He possesses a lot of pace and likes to take on defenders and is constantly looking to put defenders on the back foot."

"He is a player that was highly recommended to me and I spoke to Micky Adams about him, who told me that Jennison would be a real asset for us this season."

"He has a lot of experience of the Football League and he has the right mentality for what we are trying to do here. I've played against him on a couple of occasions and he is a very exciting player."
