COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg has reinforced his squad with the signing of George Mannion.

The versatile player, who can operate at wing back or in midfield, is the latest name to arrive at the JD Cymru North side ahead of their expected title bid when competitive action gets underway.

Mannion is no stranger to the Four Crosses Arena having turned out for the club as a youngster in 2016 under Paul Moore, scoring in a friendly over Rhyl before moving on without making his league debut.

The 24-year-old boasts a wealth of experience within the English system at Chester, Northwich Victoria, Prescot Cables and Glossop North End, in addition to Mannion enjoying a spell playing in Australia.

Hogg, said: "I'm pleased George is joining us. He has trained with the squad for a number of weeks now and has done well.

"He is a wide player who is in fabulous condition, possesses good qualities and is quick.

"He has got all the attributes to be a success in our division and I'm looking forward to seeing him take the initiative as we work together over the course of the coming campaign."

Training continues to go well for the Seagulls’ as they await clarification from the Welsh Government and Football Association of Wales as to when friendly fixtures and competitive matches to begin.

Assistant manager Iain Bennett has returned from his coaching duties in South Korea, with Sam Downey and Damian Ketley also making their respective returns to full training after hernia and knee injuries, respectively.

"There has been a real competitive edge to everything we have done and that has been great to see,” added Hogg.

"New signings Lewis Sirrell and Sam Hart have integrated well and both look like they've been here for years.

"I would be lying if I said we weren't a little frustrated about not being able to play friendly games as of yet.

“Hopefully in the not too distant future we will know more about moving into phase three training and we can get some friendly games played with a view to progressing our season preparations further."
