PRESTATYN Town have lost the services of two key players last week.

Combative midfielder Rob Hughes played a leading role in the Seasiders’ eventual triumph over the Silkmen to claim the JD Cymru North title in convincing fashion before a spell in Australia, but he has now opted for a move to Cae y Castell as the club looks set to be promoted to the JD Cymru Premier.

This represents a significant signing for manager Niall McGuinness, with Hughes widely considered as one of the best goal-scoring midfielders anywhere in the country.

Neil Gibson will also be without talented youngster Danny Davies next season after he agreed a deal with Connah’s Quay Nomads.

The gifted wing back was offered a full-time contract by the JD Cymru Premier champions, but opted for a part-time role due to work commitments.

Davies is also a primary member of Prestatyn Cricket Club’s squad and played a leading role in the Town convincing title triumph under Gibson last term.

He began his career at Chester City FC’s Academy and has also represented Northamptonshire at cricket.

Upon joining the Nomads, manager Andy Morrison said: "We're delighted to sign Danny - he's a young player who, I believe, has the qualities to make a major impact at Connah's Quay Nomads and in the JD Cymru Premier."
