COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg has outlined his plans for next season as he looks to get the club into the JD Cymru Premier.

The Seagulls’ have enjoyed a fine first campaign back in the Welsh domestic system after deciding to make a return last year. They are in contention for a top-two finish after securing a host of impressive results.

With the domestic fixture list currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, Hogg is making plans for next season and an expected promotion push for his side.

He said: “The majority of the results we’ve had this season have been good, but more importantly the way in which our lads have played and really bought into what we are trying to do here as a club has been the most satisfying thing to witness as the manager.

“Our aim for next season, whenever that may be, will be to kick on and finish in a higher position than where we ultimately finish this season.

“We must use the knowledge capital we’ve attained this year and keep pace with the plan we have as a club.”

Any title bid is expected to be met with a significant challenge from elsewhere, with the JD Cymru North growing in stature and quality with every passing year.

Much will depend on whether the league gets back underway, which would see Prestatyn Town promoted pending a successful domestic licence application.

Hogg is keen to secure top-flight football for his ambitious side at the earliest opportunity, but has urged his squad to continue working hard to secure their goals.

“The JD Cymru North is a tough environment and no team wins any title without earning it,” added Hogg.

“We want to be champions one day and play at national level here in Wales. To do that we are going to have to work even harder than we have this year and earn the right in the seasons that follow this one.”
