COLWYN Bay have made another addition to their attacking options with the signing of Mitch Bryant.

The experienced forward joins a new-look Seagulls’ line-up that also consists of Joe Chaplin and Damian Ketley, with Bryant arriving from nearby Runcorn Linnetts.

A product of the Manchester United Academy, Bryant signed professional forms with Reading, where he was loaned out to Basingstoke Town in the Conference South and achieved the rare feat of scoring a double hat-trick against Weymouth.

The 28-year-old also had spells at Gloucester City, Hungerford Town, Swindon Supermarine, Cirencester Town, Cambridge City, Frome Town, Royston Town and Hitchin Town, before moving back to Manchester in 2014.

He had two spells with Mossley and also played for Trafford and Clitheroe before joining Linnetts in 2017 and scoring on his debut in a pre-season friendly against Conwy Borough.

Manager Craig Hogg, said: "We are very pleased to have agreed terms with Mitch, who is a player myself and Neil have seen play on a number of occasions during the past season and is someone we have been really impressed by.

"He has a great playing CV, tremendous quality, excellent work rate and a massive amount of football experience at various levels of the game.

"The biggest quality that impressed us, however, was the mentality of the player. He's a competitor and a winner at the core and that coupled with everything else we have seen bodes really well for our football club. We are delighted that he is joining us at Llanelian Road.”

This is the latest notable addition to the Bay squad ahead of their return to the Welsh domestic system after a 35-year stay in England, with the squad expected to be among the title contenders in what looks to be a hugely competitive Tier 2 North.
