COLWYN Bay striker Danny Andrews has put pen to paper at Flint Town United.

The Pioneer understands that the forward has accepted a significant offer to join the Huws Gray Alliance runners-up, and will now be competing against the Seagulls for the Tier 2 North title next term.

Andrews arrived at the Four Crosses Construction Arena in 2016 for a four-figure fee following a standout spell at Witton Albion.

He was Liverpool’s books as a youngster and after a spell at Cammel Laird where he was Player of the Year in 2009/10, Albion in 2011 and was named their player of the year in 2013/14.

The striker made more than 250 appearances for the Cheshire club, scoring over 80 goals – including 24 in 52 appearances in his final season before arriving at the Bay.

Andrews is the first significant departure for Craig Hogg’s squad since they announced their return to the Welsh domestic system following a 35-year stay within the English structure.

Niall McGuinness’ men enjoyed a fabulous season last term, finishing behind eventual champions Airbus Broughton despite losing Sam Hart to the Wingmakers in the January window.

They are set to strengthen significantly this summer as they look to make their JD Welsh Premier League dream a reality.
