VETERAN Damon Searle is back with Cardiff City – for one day only.
Searle, 36, has left Newport County to sign for Principality Welsh Premier League Carmarthen Town – and he’ll stop off to play for the Bluebirds en-route.
Cardiff-born Searle is in City’s squad for the Screwfix Western Masters six-a-side football tournament, when they play Swansea City, Bristol Rovers and Bristol City, at the Cardiff Bay Ice Arena on Sunday, June 22 (2.30pm).
He will be joined by Gavin Ward, Andy Legg, Stephen Jenkins, Paul Bodin, Kurt Nogan, Jeff Eckhardt, Jason Bowen and John Robinson.
Searle made almost 300 appearances for City between 1990 and 1996 before going on to play for Stockport County, Carlisle, Rochdale and Southend United.
Carmarthen Town and Newport County have effectively swapped defenders, with Paul Keddle joining the Exiles and Searle going the other way to West Wales.
Tickets for the Western Masters cost £14 for adults and £10 for children. They can be booked via the official website on www.mastersfootball.com or through the Cardiff Bay Arena.
