One of the league’s best goalkeepers in recent years Lee Idzi will be making an unexpected departure from Bangor City it was confirmed over the weekend.
Bangor’s rearranged Welsh Cup tie with Airbus UK on Tuesday will be Idzi’s last appearance for the Citizens before being mutually released from his contract.
It is understood that South-Walian Idzi, who’s been an ever-present for City so far this season, will move to a club outside of the WPL, ending his seven-year association with the league.
In a joint official announcement on Saturday, Bangor also announced that Lee’s successor will be 23-year-old Jack Cudworth who arrives from Cheshire-based Nantwich Town, with City paying a ‘generous fee’ for the 23-year-old.
“Jack has been a very popular player in his short time at the club and has been great to have around the place. Unfortunately money talks and the fact that Bangor were prepared to pay quite a generous fee for a non-contract player indicates to everyone how determined they were to get their man,” read a statement from the Nantwich Town website.
Lee has certainly been one of the more impressive goalkeepers to have played in the Welsh Premier League in recent years, having also impressed at Haverfordwest County and Neath FC as well as representing Wales at under 23 Semi-Pro level.
His departure is something of a loss to the league – best of luck Lee!
