PRESTATYN Town manager Neil Gibson is targeting another familiar face to join his squad for the upcoming campaign.

The Journal understands that the Seasiders’ are showing significant interest in Connah’s Quay Nomads midfielder Rob Hughes, who has worked under Gibson before during his first spell in a Town shirt.

Hughes would be a notable addition to a club that is harbouring huge ambitions for next season after an encouraging second half of the Huws Gray Alliance campaign, with the likes of Kai Edwards and Michael Parker heavily linked to moves to the Motion Finance Stadium.

The combative midfielder boasts JD Welsh Premier League experience with the Nomads, Town and Rhyl, and he also netted 12 times in 25 appearances during a spell with Goulbourn Valley Suns.

He signed a new one-year deal with Andy Morrison’s side last summer, but it is not known whether or not the Iron Bru Cup finalists will offer him a new deal going forward.

Town chairman Neal Colakoglu has previously stated that Gibson has an “open budget” in regards to playing staff during what is expected to be a busy summer fine tuning a talented core group for a promotion push.
