COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg has thanked departing striker Danny Andrews for his overall contribution to the club.

The forward has left the club to sign a significant deal with Tier 2 North rivals Flint Town United, ending a three-year stay at the Seagulls after joining for a four-figure fee from Witton Albion in 2016.

He made a total of 122 appearances and scored 29 times for the Bay, but he will now lock horns with them during the upcoming campaign as part of Niall McGuinness’ formidable looking squad.

Hogg, said: “I’m sad to see Danny go and it’s unfortunate that we couldn’t agree terms on this occasion.

“Danny has been an outstanding servant to our football club and was a pleasure to work with and manage during my time back here at the Bay.

“He is a quality player and really made my first job as a manger pretty straight forward, with his willingness to work and do what was asked of him.

“We have spoken privately and I wish him and his next club all the best.”

The Pioneer understands that talks are ongoing with a number of different players that could replace Andrews, with Airbus Broughton striker Asa Hamilton among the names linked to the Four Crosses Construction Area.
