CONOR HARWOOD has swapped Cymru Premier champions Connah's Quay Nomads for top-flight new boys Flint Town United.

The striker, who made Cymru Premier history by being the first millennium-born player to feature in the Welsh top-flight when he came off the bench against Airbus on Boxing Day 2016, has headed for the Essity Stadium in order to gain regular first-team football.

Harwood made four starts and 14 substitute appearances for Nomads, scoring twice, including a crucial winner against Bala Town in the 2018/19 season, and Nomads boss Andy Morrison knows the time is right for the youngster to go and learn his trade.

Morrison said: "You can’t learn the game sat on the bench. You have to get beat up on the pitch in a competitive arena, learn and come back stronger and smarter.

"That comes with games, as I told Conor this week, I expect him to kick on and do great for Flint, just not against us."

Bala Town have confirmed that midfielder Lee Molyneux has signed a new deal for next season that will see him combine playing with a role as the Lakesiders' strength and conditioning coach.

The former Wrexham youth team player said: "Can’t wait to combine my role as a player/strength and conditioning coach this season. Looking forward to the new season and playing in Europe with @BalaTownFC."

Sam Molyneux has become Gresford Athletic's latest signing, rejoining the club from Rhyl.

The 23-year-old attacker made 15 appearances for Gresford, scoring five goals, before heading to Rhyl in the 2019 January transfer window.

But Molyneux is back at Clappers Lane, director of football Steve Halliwell saying: "We have made another great signing in former player Sam Molyneux. I was gutted to lose him midway through last year, so to be able to get him back and strengthen our squad even further is a brilliant bit of business."
