Troy Greening joins Trethomas Bluebirds until January

Barry Town United can confirm that Troy Greening has joined Trethomas Bluebirds until January to gain match fitness.

Troy suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Penybont in August 2019 and he has been working hard ever since to return to football. The coronavirus pandemic delayed his recovery, but he underwent an operation in December 2020 and is now on track to be ready to play in October.

A spell in the Ardal Leagues South East will give Troy the opportunity to build up his fitness and get regular gametime.

Troy has been a huge part of our club over the last decade since signing from Newport County in 2012. The midfielder was heavily involved in the squads that won three promotions in four years, rising from Welsh League Division Three to the Welsh Premier League in the process. In 2014-2015, Troy was named Manager’s Young Player of the Season.

In total, the 28-year-old has made 185 appearances for the club, scoring 16 goals.

We wish Troy the best of luck at Trethomas Bluebirds and look forward to welcoming back our Number 8 in January.

Gavin Chesterfield said: “We’ve missed Troy. He’s an outstanding person and a very gifted footballer. He’s someone who has been with us through it all and someone who means a lot to everyone at the club.

“After a tough tough few years with injury, Troy has worked extremely hard in his rehab and is nearing the stage where game time is needed. I’d like to personally thank Mark Dunford and Trethomas Bluebirds for supporting Troy’s fitness and rehab.

“The plan is for both clubs to work closely with a view of seeing Troy back in a Barry shirt in the near future.”
