Ford has also turned out for their Academy side as well as the Scarlets' primary feeder team Llanelli RFC. He is also a Wales international at Under 18 and 20 levels.
Neath coach Neil Edwards said: "We're delighted to have secured Dale's services for the next two years.
"He is a quality player who can turn out in a number of positions in the back-line which is very useful to us or any side.
"We're pleased that now we have a number of quality young players from all round Wales wanting to join us, all having the same goal - to turn Neath into a top club once again."
