Pitching In Southern League Division One Central club Ware have signed defender Richard Bryan.
The 26-year-old left-back appeared in a couple of pre-season games for Paul Halsey’s side last year but returned to the United States where he played for Detroit City in the National Independent Soccer Association.
Although born in London, Bryan has played all of his `soccer` in the States, starting out with Lander Bearcats whilst he was at Lander University.
He then had a year with Mississippi Brilla in the Premier Development League and six months with Des Moines Menace in the USL League Two.
Prior to the 2020 USL Championship season, Bryan was signed by Saint Louis in the USL Championship and then joined Detroit for the first time in August 2021.
He is now back in the UK and Ware are in the process of gaining international clearance for him.
Meanwhile, midfielder Sam Chaney, who joined Ware from Isthmian League Premier Division side Enfield Town for the 2019/20 season, is also back at Wodson Park.
After Vanarama National League experience with Torquay United, for whom he made 56 appearances, he played four games for Ware but was sidelined through injury.
He now re-joins having overcome his injury problems.
