Demetriou is the second departure from Gavin Chesterfield's squad following Tyrelle Webbe’s move to Welsh Premier League rivals Carmarthen Town.

Clayton Green - the younger brother of former Wales international Ryan Green - is the clubs first arrival of the summer.

Green had originally signed for Barry last summer but moved to Carmarthen Town in January instead after time away from Wales. He has experience playing for English clubs like Paulton Rovers, Frome Town and Evesham.

He is the son of Phil Green who scored 70 goals for the Linetts in a seven-year spell with Barry in the 1970's. Green has signed a two-year contract with the club.

“I’m delighted to announce the capture of Clayton after a life opportunity didn’t allow us to work together last season, as previously planned”.

“He is a player I have wanted to bring to the club and work with for some time as I feel he will not only be good for us but that we will be a good fit for him,” said Chesterfield.

Barry’s forward options have been reduced though, with James Demetriou leaving the club to return to Australia.

He returns to the side which he made his first-team debut at 16, before moving across continents to sign for Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Demetriou joined the Linetts from Bangor City in January, having only played for the Citizens since October. He scored a hattrick against Llandudno back in February, in a 3-1 win for Barry.
