#MarcTheDay | Barry Town sign Marcus Day

Barry Town United are pleased to announce the signing of winger Marcus Day from Bristol Manor Farm, subject to international clearance.

Day began his career in the academy of hometown club Bristol City at the age of 13, rising up through the ranks to star for the club’s Under-23 side and also enjoying a spell on loan at local non-league outfit Paulton Rovers.

In pursuit of first team football, he departed Ashton Gate last summer and signed for Bristol Manor Farm in the Southern League Division One South, quickly becoming a popular player at The Creek.

The 20-year-old stood out in our 1-0 friendly win over Bristol Manor Farm earlier this month, and he has since been training with Gavin Chesterfield’s squad and featured in our 4-1 victory over Undy Athletic last weekend when he showed his versatility by playing out of position at right-back.

Now he has agreed a deal to become a Barry player and test himself in the Cymru Premier for the first time.

Gavin Chesterfield said: “Marcus comes with a good pedigree and is an exciting wide man who really impressed in our friendly against Bristol Manor Farm. In that regard I would like to thank Bristol Manor Farm for the class they have shown in dealing with this transfer and wish them the very best for the season ahead.

“Marcus is a young player with a lot of promise. He is a tricky winger who will bring much to our style of play. He’s integrated well into the team over the past week and we are excited to see him develop further.”
