NEIL Gibson’s resignation from his role as Prestatyn Town boss has also come with a wealth of player departures.

The Seasiders’ have been left reeling by the news that their title-winning boss has stepped down amid increasing uncertainty at the UK Leisure Living Stadium, which has seen a number of key figures behind the scenes also leave the set-up in recent weeks.

Chairman Jamie Welsh stated he is looking to get the right replacement to take the club forward, but any new arrival will need to form a completely new squad of players after those who have been extremely loyal to Gibson are also leaving the club.

Former Wales C international Kai Edwards and energetic midfielder Alex Jones have already found new homes after both signed for Flint Town United, who took the Seasiders’ place in the top-flight after they failed to obtain their Tier 1 Domestic Licence from the Football Association of Wales.

Zeb Edwards was another to find a club quickly, with the player agreeing to make a return to Holywell Town.

Talented players such as Ben Maher and Dan Roberts also confirmed via social media that they are also looking for pastures new, with the duo sure to attract plenty of interest after playing a leading role in Town’s championship triumph last time out.

Other influential figures such as Jack Kenny and Jack Higgins, in addition to goalkeeping duo Jon Rushton and Ryan Woods, will no longer turn out for the club, which is the latest big blow for a club that looks completely different from the one that began the previous campaign with so much hope for the future.

This is a similar situation to which Gibson left the club following his previous decision to step away, which forced the joint-manager team of Ryan Turner and Leon Field to virtually start from scratch.
