Newtown AFC have announced their attempts to sign Wrexham AFC player Joe Newton has fell through.


On Tuesday night, the Welsh Premier League club confirmed the loan deal of Newton from the Glyndwr University Football Academy.


Robins manager Chris Hughes planned to play Newton in their trip to Bangor City on Friday but more information revealed the midfielder had played for Wrexham Reserves as well as a loan spell with Colwyn Bay FC.


The deal became out of reach for Newton to represent a third club in a single season resulting in a no deal.


The club stated: ‘Following the announced signing of Joe Newton from Wrexham yesterday evening, Newtown Football Club are disappointed to confirm the signing has not gone though.


‘Details have emerged that Newton played a small amount of game time for Wrexham Reserves earlier this season, as well as a loan spell with Colwyn Bay.
‘This makes him ineligible to play for a third club in the space of one season.
‘The club are disappointed by the news and the transfer will now not go through.’
