Barry Town United have announced the sale of Macauley Southam-Hales to Sky Bet League One side Fleetwood Town for an undisclosed fee.
The right-back had been heavily linked with a number of English Football League clubs thanks to his performances over the last 18 months, and the clubs agreed the deal on Deadline Day.
Fleetwood have risen up the English pyramid over the last fifteen season, from winning the North West Counties Football League Premier Division in 2004/05 (step 9) to finding themselves tenth in League 1.
Lauded for his defensive work and attacking prowess with Barry, Southam-Hales becomes the latest player to make the move from the JDWPL to the EFL, after Scott Quigley and Connell Rawlinson made similar moves last season.
Speaking to the club website, Fleetwood Town boss Joey Barton said: “Our scouts have watched Macaulay for a while now and after impressing during a trial period at the club we are delighted to bring him in.
“He’s an exciting young player who we are pleased to have with us at Fleetwood Town. He’s enjoyed a good first half of the season in Wales, and the challenge now for him to step up to League One level.
“We look forward to working with him every day and see him develop with us at the club.”
