COLWYN BAY pulled off what could prove to be a fantastic signing on transfer deadline day, as they secured the loan signing of Llyr Morris.

Several JD Cymru Premier and JD Cymru North clubs moved quickly on February 1 to tie up last minute deals for players ahead of a potential re-start to the 2020/21 campaign.

The Seagulls caught the eye with their acquisition of attacker Morris, who signs from Bala Town for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Lakesiders last summer, made five appearances in the top-flight for the club during their 20/21 campaign before the season was put on hold.

Morris was in Colin Caton's squad for the famous UEFA Europa League qualifying win (1-0) in Malta against Valetta last August and the 2-0 defeat to Standard Liege in Belgium some weeks later.

However, he is best known for the time he spent with hometown club Ruthin Town.

It was there, Morris progressed through the ranks from 11 years old to being the top scorer for the club in several seasons at tier two level.

He hit 13 goals in 22 matches for Ruthin in the JD Cymru North last season.

On signing Morris, Colwyn Bay manager Craig Hogg said: "We're very pleased that we've been able to bring in Llyr from Bala on loan until the end of the season.

"Llyr had a solid goal-scoring record in Tier 2 North for Ruthin, where he impressed over the course of a number of seasons, and that form secured him the summer move to Bala.

"Llyr is a very good player and to add his qualities to what we feel is a very competitive group, is a big positive indeed.

"I thank Colin Caton and all at Bala for allowing the loan move to take place. We look forward to welcoming Llyr to the football club and seeing him in action for us when our season does finally get under way."
