COLWYN Bay have pulled off another transfer coup with the signing of Llanrwst United striker Callum Parry.

The Seagulls’ confirmed the signing of the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One top scorer on the same day that Sam Downey opted to join the set-up after a spell at Llandudno.

Parry is widely regarded as one of the best young finishers anywhere in the region and he reportedly turned down a wealth of offers from elsewhere to sign for Craig Hogg and test himself in the JD Cymru North.

The 21-year-old has worked with the management team before at Llandudno and has netted no fewer than 32 times in all competitions so far this term, in addition to five hat tricks during this time.

He is expected to fill a significant void left by the injured Damian Ketley and Julian Williams, who is set to spend time in Australia between now and the end of the season, and he will be available for Bay’s weekend clash with Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant.

Hogg, said: “We sincerely thank Llanrwst FC for allowing this transfer to be completed so quickly.

“Callum is a local lad who has performed very well at Tier Three level this season.

“There has been a lot of interest in the player during this window and we are very happy he has decided to join us.

"Callum has a strong and very honest work ethic, with a real hunger to do well in the game.

"That has impressed us most, but we also see a player with good quality and he is another local lad we feel we can work with to help develop and improve further.

"We welcome Callum to the Bay and look forward to seeing him in action for us."

Bay assistant Mark Orme ran the rule over Parry during the Rwsters’ 2-2 draw at Nantlle Vale last weekend, where he managed to find the net, and penned a deal at the Four Crosses Arena despite interest from Corwen and Rhyl.
