COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg has been reflecting on more squad departures due to their lack of activity in the current climate.

The Seagulls’ confirmed the departure of skipper Tom McCready, who is widely regarded as one of JD Cymru North’s most talented players, but the Bay skipper has not decided on a move to Runcorn Linnets to guarantee competitive football at an uncertain time.

Another who has left the Four Cross Arena is Sam Hart, who joined the club from Airbus UK Broughton this summer but with no confirmed start date issued as yet by the Football Association of Wales, he has now joined JD Cymru Premier side Flint Town United.

Hogg, said: “I'm made up that Tom has been able to get the move completed and that he can now focus on playing competitive football in a league that is up and running - and playing in front of spectators.

"He is joining a very good club with a very good up and coming manager and I'm sure it will be a very good fit for all concerned.

"We hope to see him back here at some point, if we do ever get playing again, but for now his focus and commitment will be with our friends over the border and we wish both very well indeed."

McCready issued a heartfelt statement to the Bay supporters following his departure and declared his desire to return to the set-up once some semblance of normality resumes.

"I’m incredibly grateful to Craig Hogg, Neil Coverley and all involved at Colwyn Bay in making this as smooth a process as possible,” he added.

"It feels quite strange to be in a position where I have had to make this decision, and it was certainly not one I have taken lightly.

"I think we all have an opinion on whether Welsh Football can get back to competitive action safely or not, and at the moment, rightly or wrongly, it doesn’t appear that we’ll have a chance to play in the Cymru North this season.

"We had honest conversations between the players and staff about what that meant for players, and all agreed that should we have options to play for the time being elsewhere, then the club would support us wholeheartedly to do that.

"The hope, personally, is to come back to Colwyn Bay when we can get things back up and running.”
