CONWY Borough have received a huge boost with the news that Gerwyn Jones has decided to remain with the club.

The Pioneer understands that the talented defender turned down a move to Huws Gray Alliance rivals Bangor City earlier today (Thursday) after meeting with Citizens’ director of football Stephen Vaughan Jnr on Wednesday.

After giving the move strong consideration overnight, Jones has opted to stay with Gareth Thomas’ treble-winners and continue their positive return to life in the second tier.

The news comes as another blow to City, with Ruthin Town striker Llyr Morris also spurning their advances following an approach earlier this week.

Jones has been at the top of his game for the Y Morfa side so far this season, turning in a series of exceptional displays that saw him claim the league’s Player of the Month accolade for September.

The Tangerines’ skipper suffered an injury in their weekend defeat to Prestatyn Town, although it is not known whether or not he is expected to miss any significant time.

Thomas’ men return to home soil this Saturday when they host Penrhyncoch, and the manager has stated they will be “looking hard” at the squad following their recent slump.

Speaking after the game against the Seasiders, Thomas said; “We were poor throughout and second best all over the park. I have to take the blame as I picked the team but that said Prestatyn showed a bigger desire for the game and that is something that I won’t accept.

“We will work hard this week looking to strengthen the squad as we are a third of the season in and the last few weeks we have been poor so we all have to take some responsibility and work together to turn this result around.”
