One of a host of local lads to join the Barry Town squad experienced Compton played youth football at Portsmouth, before signing with the likes of West Bromwich Albion, Brighton and Hove Albion and eventually Falkirk, where he made his debut as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Celtic at Celtic Park.

Later returning to Fratton Park, Compton also played alongside Barry’s European hero Mike Flynn at Bradford City, with both coincidentally scoring in the same match with Leeds United at Elland Road. Jack joins the club from Chippenham Town.

Gavin Chesterfield commented “Its no secret I’ve wanted to bring Jack to the club for some time. His pedigree and background stands for itself and I’m delighted to have him at the club ahead of our Europa League Campaign and JD Welsh Premier League Season.”
