CONWY Borough have received a massive boost ahead of the new campaign after prolific striker Corrig McGonigle committed to the club.

The Tangerines’ talisman has been a hugely influential member of the set-up since arriving from Glantraeth in 2017, and he has turned down a series of offers to remain at Y Morfa for the FAW Northern Championship season.

McGonigle made a hugely successful transition to the second tier after a series of outstanding seasons in the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance with Borough and Glantraeth, netting 19 times for Warren Gibbs’ side and forming a superb partnership with Dean Seager, who recently left the club to sign for Llandudno.

This news is a significant statement from Russ Williams’ side, who have seen a number of key members of the squad depart throughout the opening stages of the off-season.

Club director Kurtis Chapman, said: "Everyone at the club is looking forward to the first season of the FAW Championship which will be a high quality league.

“We are all thrilled that Corrig has bought into the plans and aspirations that we have for the club.

“His quality on the pitch is fantastic and along with that his attitude in and around the club is first class. Having spoken to the Corrig, it is obvious that he can't wait for the season to start."

Speculation regarding a move for McGonigle during the transfer window was rife, with Llandudno and Porthmadog reportedly making offers for the striker.
