Weston-super-Mare AFC are delighted to announce that forward Elis Watts has signed for the club permanently after impressing in pre-season.
The youngster originally joined on loan from Aldershot Town in May and saw the season out with the Seagulls, netting against Chesham United in the process.
Since leaving Aldershot after two years in Hampshire following an upbringing at Newport County, Elis has appeared in four pre-season games for the Seagulls and scored two goals while assisting one.
On signing Elis permanently, Manager Scott Bartlett said:
Elis is a good young player with potential.
“We like what we saw last season, and he’s come in and worked hard this pre-season.
“He can play anywhere in an attacking sense and gives us another option in a few areas so it’s a good move for us and a good platform for him.”
I am delighted to join the club.
“I was here at the back end of last season and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a great group of lads with great coaching staff. A perfect place to develop really.
“I’m looking forward to the season getting started and pushing for promotion”.
We are delighted that Elis has joined the Seagulls and wish him all the best going forward in a Seagulls shirt.
