PRESTATYN Town’s management team have been busy over the festive period with three major signings ahead of the JD Cymru North campaign.

Although things are still up in the air regarding a possible start date due to the Tier 4 lockdown implemented by the Welsh Government, the Seasiders’ revamp of their squad has continued undeterred in the hope of some good news in the coming weeks.

First team manager Ryan Turner and director of football John Lawless added a former Town legend to their ranks in the form of striker Lee Beattie, who joins from neighbouring Prestatyn Sports.

Beattie rose to fame with a stunning goal against Bangor City in 2015 that was almost shortlisted for the FIFA Puskas Award.

Lawless, said: "I’m delighted Lee has agreed to re-join the club, he’s proven at this level and is a Prestatyn lad who knows the club well and we’re looking forward to working with him.”

Another notable arrival to Bastion Gardens is forward Luke Holden, who has enjoyed a glittering career that has seen the 32-year-old turn out for The New Saints, Rhyl, Charlton Athletic, Wrexham, Skelmersdale and Connah’s Quay Nomads.

This is a major coup for the club, with Holden achieving a considerable amount both in the domestic game and beyond.

"I’ve known Luke a very long time and his experience will be a major plus for the squad,” added Lawless.

“He has experience of playing at the top level of the Welsh Football Pyramid and I’m delighted he has agreed to join Prestatyn Town subject to FAW clearance."

Rounding off their recent signing is Sam Barnes, a commanding defender who has enjoyed some tremendous success at the likes of Bangor City and Newtown during a standout career to date.

Barnes has also captained Colwyn Bay and turned out for Aberystwyth Town and AFC Marine in recent years.

Lawless, said: "Sam's an excellent defender who can play either at centre half or full back and will be a vital part of our defence. I’m delighted to get him on board."
