FORMER Prestatyn Town owner Neal Colakoglu has outlined his ambitions after taking over at Holywell Town.

The ex-chairman at the Motion Finance Stadium sold the runaway JD Cymru North leaders to Jamie Welsh due to “personal reasons”, but he will now spearhead the Wellmen as they look to re-establish themselves in the second-tier after securing promotion at the first time of asking under Johnny Haseldin.

Colakoglu will replace outgoing Holywell chairman Sean Elliot with immediate effect, and he is “excited to be working with the current management team that was recently boosted by the addition of ex-Rhyl FC midfielder Mark Connolly.

He said: “I am excited about the opportunity to work with the existing management team to take this club forward.

“The club is already in a healthy state and I am sure we can bring success to the club both on and off the pitch in the coming seasons.

“Having gained promotion, we will now work to develop the playing staff with Johnny for the start of next season to stabilise the club in the JD Cymru North.

“I look forward to being welcomed to Halkyn Road in the forthcoming season by all connected with the club and we can enjoy the clubs future together."

Elliot will be remaining as the club’s new licensing office after playing a significant role in Town’s exceptional success in recent years.

Colakoglu took over at Prestatyn during the 2018/19 season and immediate brought back Neil Gibson as manager. This resulted in a transformation in their fortunes from relegation candidates to second-tier champions last term.

The club’s failure to obtain an FAW Tier 1 Licence on appeal represented a real blow for the owner, which resulted in him taking a new challenge elsewhere.
