ADAM BARTON has saluted another successful Europa League campaign by Connah’s Quay Nomads.

Barton spent the second part of last season at the Deeside Stadium, helping Nomads qualify for Europe by finishing as Welsh Premier League runners-up to The New Saints.

The 27-year-old, who signed for Wrexham earlier this summer from Dundee United, has been watching Nomads’ progress this summer.

“I still speak to a few of the boys there, so I text congratulations for beating Kilmarnock,” said Barton, pictured in action for Nomads against Barry Town United.

“Last week didn’t go to plan against Partizan Belgrade, but I’m sure they will give it a go.”

Barton, who played in the Scottish Challenge Cup and Welsh Cup final defeats for Nomads at the hands of Ross County and TNS respectively, is pleased to see Andy Morrison’s men punching above their weight on the European stage once again.

“It’s a great achievement for that club and what the manager has done there is brilliant,” said Barton, who enjoyed his time in Flintshire.

“I went for many reasons and I did enjoy being there with a good set of lads and good staff,” he continued.

“It was a good time and I’m glad they are doing well.”
