ONE of the region’s most talented strikers is believed to be attracting interest from some of North Wales’ most ambitious clubs.

The Journal understands that Airbus Broughton striker Asa Hamilton has been told he can leave the club after playing a starring role for the Wingmakers in their promotion back to the JD Welsh Premier League.

The physical striker has been the subject of considerable interest, with the likes of Colwyn Bay, Flint Town United and Rhyl among the clubs that are reported to be considering Hamilton for a role in their set-up next season.

Hamilton has long been considered as one of the best strikers operating outside of the top flight, with the former Guilsfield man netting 13 league goals for Airbus this season to play a significant role in their championship success.

He also gave them a real presence up front that they have been missing for some time, but manager Steve O'Shaughnessy has opted not to keep Hamilton around and give him a shot at making a similar impact in the WPL.

Rhyl, Flint Town United and Colwyn Bay are expected to be contesting at the business end of Tier 2 North throughout the season in pursuit of the crown, with both set to be extremely busy in the coming months in terms of boosting personnel.
