MICHAEL WILDE insists it would have been "extremely hard" to say no to a new deal with Connah's Quay Nomads.

The experienced former Chester striker has put pen-to-paper on a new one-year deal with the reigning Cymru Premier champions.

Wilde is relishing the chance to try and help Nomads retain their top-flight title as well as competing in the club's first ever Champions League campaign next month.

“I’m delighted to sign a new contract at the club," said Wilde. "It was a fantastic season, and winning the League and League Cup double was just rewards for the great work being done here.

"It’s extremely hard to turn down an offer to keep playing for the Champions and to play in the Champions’ League again.

"I’m still a few goals shy of the 200 mark in the league as well, so I’m going to be gunning for that this season and obviously aiming to retain the title!”

Nomads boss Andy Morrison added: “Wildey has been with us for four years now and has maintained his incredibly high standards.

"His desire, professionalism and vision to keep challenging himself is an example to everyone at the club.”
