PRESTATYN Sports have wished Lee Beattie well after the experienced striker made a return to Prestatyn Town.

The forward opted to make a return to football for the first time in four years with the NWCFA Tier 4 (East) Premier Division side, with Beattie impressing considerably both working his way back to fitness and during their limited time on the pitch in friendly fixtures amid the coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

Beattie rose to fame with a stunning goal against Bangor City in 2015 that was almost shortlisted for the FIFA Puskas Award, and a statement on the Sports’ Facebook page wished the player well as he moves back to Bastion Gardens.

It read: “The club and managers would like to wish player Lee Beattie well with his move to Prestatyn Town FC.

“Lee has worked hard first to get back fit in the pre-season and played well in the local friendly games we were able to play over the winter.

“Credit to his attitude to training and the management and physio for getting him back fit as he hadn't played competitive football in four years.

“No one at the club would deny him another shot at playing as high as possible so he goes with our blessing. You only get so many chances and you have to take them.”

What comes next at the Seasiders remains to be seen, with recent appointment John Lawless leaving the club with immediate effect last week in the latest in a series of bombshells emanating from the set-up in recent months.
