Kayne McLaggon signs new Barry Town contract

Barry Town United are delighted to confirm that Kayne McLaggon has signed a new contract with the football club.

2021-22 will be Kayne’s fifth season at Jenner Park after joining in 2017 following our promotion back to the Welsh top flight. Since then, he has made 117 appearances and scored 56 goals.

A Barry boy, Kayne scored the club’s first goal in European competition since 2003 when he netted against NSI Runavik last summer. That kicked off another campaign in which he took home our golden boot, scoring 12 times in 2020-21. Gavin Chesterfield also named him as his manager’s player of the year at our end-of-season awards night earlier this month.

At 30 years old, Kayne is one of the most experienced players in our squad and captained the side of multiple occasions last season, emphasising the key role he plays in yellow and blue.

Gavin Chesterfield said: “Kayne has been a central part to our success in recent times. He’s a local lad, which means a lot to our supporters and provides an excellent example for children in the local area who can aspire to emulate what he has done and play for their hometown club and beyond.”
