PRESTATYN Town face a fight to hold on to one of their most influential squad members.

The Journal understands that Seasiders’ skipper Alex Jones has received a significant offer from Tier Two North rivals Flint Town United for the upcoming campaign.

Manager Neil Gibson will undoubtedly want to keep hold of Jones, who was one of the driving forces behind the club’s success during the second half of the Huws Gray Alliance season to secure a ninth placed finish for the one-time relegation candidates.

The powerful presence in the middle of the park led the team superbly throughout a difficult opening to life back in the second tier, before coming on strong with an improved squad around him once Gibson made a return from Connah’s Quay Nomads.

Jones boasts JD Welsh Premier League experience after a spell at nearby rivals Rhyl, and it would represent a significant coup for Silkmen boss Niall McGuinness to secure his signature from a side that are expected to be challenging them for promotion next season.

He netted nine league goals for Town last season in his first season back at the Motion Finance Stadium following a hugely successful first stint at the club that spanned two campaigns.

Prestatyn chairman Neal Colakoglu has stated his desire to get the club back in the WPL at the earliest opportunity and is expected to provide Gibson with “whatever he needs” to ensure his dream becomes a reality.
