Connah's Quay Nomads have completed the signing of former Wales international Neal Eardley.

Eardley brings a wealth of experience to the defending JD Cymru Premier champions' ranks, having made more than 300 appearances in the English Football League.

The defender, who progressed through Wales' age-grade ranks, made his senior debut under John Toshack in a 1-0 win over Bulgaria in 2007, and went on to make 16 appearances on the international stage.

He has also enjoyed a successful career at club level after a spell in the Premier League with Blackpool, who he won the Championship play-off final with in 2010, while he also featured in League One and League Two.

The 32-year-old follows in the footsteps of fellow Wales internationals Dave Edwards, Jazz Richards and David Cotterill, who have all made the switch to the JD Cymru Leagues in recent seasons.

Eardley will wear the number 22 jersey during his time with the Nomads.

“It’s really rare to have this opportunity at this point in the season on a free transfer outside of the window," said Nomads boss Craig Harrison.

"We’ve had the opportunity to bring Neal in, he’s got lots of experience of playing at a very high level and still at a good age.

"He's still very fit, very enthusiastic and still wants to play football.

"He’ll be great on the pitch and off the pitch, so he’s a fantastic addition at this stage of the season."

Eardley could be in line to make his debut for the Nomads this weekend when league leaders The New Saints make the trip to Deeside in front of the Sgorio cameras.
