LLANELLI manager Andy Legg says he is disappointed to lose goalkeeper Craig Richards, who has left to sign for Port Talbot Town.
"Craig was the number one choice for the last 10 games of last season and was in pole position for the shirt this year," Legg said.
"I am quite upset that he has chosen to go to Port Talbot for a few pounds more!"
Richards, 21, played for Llanelli's Under-19s and impressed sufficiently to be added to the Welsh Premier squad for season 2010/11, making a stunning debut in the first game of the season at Airbus UK Broughton.
He joined Aberystwyth on-loan for a month at the end of October 2011 to replace the suspended Steve Cann, but returned to Stebonheath Park to become first choice with the gloves ahead of Ashley Morris.
Former Reds' keeper Craig Morris is expected to return to the club from Afan Lido as keeper cover.
