COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg could not hide his delight after he secured the services of striker Llyr Morris on loan from Bala Town.

Widely regarded as one of the best finishers outside of the top-flight before making a switch to the Lakesiders’ in the summer following a standout spell at Ruthin Town, Morris is another valuable asset for the Seagulls’ to call upon as they go in search of JD Cymru Premier football at the second time of asking.

Morris was the final signing of an immensely busy transfer window for the Bay, who got back some key figures who departed for football elsewhere during the early portion of the campaign.

The loan signing came through the youth system at Ruthin, progressing to become among the JD Cymru North’s top scorers over the last three years.

He was part of Bala’s Europa League squads that won 1-0 win in Malta against Valetta was also part of the set-up during their 2-0 defeat to Standard Liege in Belgium.

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 underway."
