TWO leading figures in Prestatyn Town’s title triumph last season have both opted to join Caernarfon Town.

The Seasiders’ squad has been decimated following the resignation of manager Neil Gibson, with many holding a close loyalty to the former boss.

This has seen a host of players secure moves elsewhere over the last week, with the experienced duo of Michael Parker and Jack Kenny choosing to take a step-up to JD Cymru Premier level with the Canaries.

Parker is a vastly experienced figure within the game and has top-flight experience with both Prestatyn and Connah’s Quay Nomads, with the club’s fantastic support playing a leading role in the midfielder’s decision to sign for Huw Griffiths’ men.

He said: “I know due to the current pandemic it's difficult to generate and benefit from that amazing atmosphere the supporters create home and away, and hopefully, soon enough supporters will be allowed back in grounds.

“I've always had a close affiliation with the supporters for my hometown club, Prestatyn, and always tried to repay that with my best efforts on the pitch.

“This was one of the main attractions in my move to Caernarfon as I hope to connect and do the same here.”

Kenny provided the Seasiders’ with some vital goals during a memorable campaign last time out that also saw them reach the JD Welsh Cup semi-final before the Football Association of Wales brought the season to a premature halt.

Another staunch Gibson loyalist, Kenny has worked with Griffiths before during their time together at Cefn Druids and the player is hoping this will enable him to hit the ground running at The Oval.

“I’ve played against them many times over the years and I’ve always been very impressed with the set-up, facilities and the people involved and I’ve always seen myself playing here at some point in my career,” added Kenny.

“I’ve loved playing here as a player against Caernarfon as I always seemed to score and I’m hoping I’ll be doing the exact same thing in a yellow shirt. I’ve also played for Huw before and I know how he operates so to come and play for him again is something that appealed to me. I’m just really looking forward to meeting the lads and getting started.”
