Haverfordwest County AFC are pleased to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Zac Jones on a contract which runs until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

The 21-year-old, who hails from Wellington in New Zealand, has most recently been playing for Miramar Rangers in the New Zealand National League – the country’s top-flight competition.

Jones, who has represented his country at under-17 and under-20 level, began his career with Wellington Olympic.

In September 2017, he departed the Greeks to link up with Wellington Phoenix reserves, who also compete in the National League.

After a three-year stint in the reserves, Jones made the step up to the first team, who ply their trade in the A-League – the highest level of football in Australia.

His stay with The Nix came to an end in February 2021 when he departed to sign for Team Wellington, who won the final edition of the New Zealand Football Championship in March 2021. Jones started in goal for Team Welly, as they defeated Auckland City 4-2 at North Harbour Stadium in Auckland.

Having made the decision to depart the capital side after their title success, Jones linked up with Miramar Rangers in March last year, and would go on to win the first instalment of the newly-created New Zealand National League, defeating former side Wellington Olympic 7-2 in the grand final at Jerry Collins Stadium.

In search of a new challenge, the stopper, who stands at 1.85 metres tall, has decided to test himself in the top tier of Welsh football, and we look forward to seeing what he can offer in the months ahead.

Welcome to the Ogi Bridge Meadow, Zac!
