Reds unveil Cann - Briton Ferry Llansawel AFC

Briton Ferry Llansawel are delighted to announce the signing of experienced Welsh Premier goalkeeper Steve Cann from Port Talbot Town.

Having started his career at Derby County, Cann was released in June 2007.

After his release by Derby, Cann joined Rotherham United on 31 July 2007, after impressing in a trial.

He played his first game for the Millers in a 3-0 FA Cup loss to Aldershot Town.

In his next game for the Millers, in the Football League Trophy Northern Semi-Final against Darlington, Cann saved 2 penalties in a 4–2 shoot out win, including saving one with his groin, enabling the Millers to progress to the Northern Final.

Cann was released by Rotherham at the end of the 2008–09 season, joining Welsh Premier League side Aberystwyth Town, making his debut in a 4-0 win over Caersws on the opening day of the season.

Having previously been with the club on a non-contract basis, Cann signed a permanent contract with Aberystwyth on 4 December 2009. Manager Alan Morgan praised Cann's form stating: "Steve, in my eyes, is the best goalkeeper in the Welsh Premier." In his first year with the club, Cann made 29 league appearances before an injury ruled him out for the final month of the season.

Following a two-season spell with Carmarthen Town, Cann joined fellow Welsh Premier League outfit Port Talbot Town.

Steve enjoyed a great spell at the Blues, captaining the side last season.

The signing is a massive statement by the Reds, showing the clubs intent for the coming season.
