Connah’s Quay Nomads have continued to strengthen their side ahead of maiden UEFA Champions League journey after announcing the signing of highly-rated Danny Davies from Prestatyn Town this morning
The 24-year-old Welshman joins The Nomads following a successful two-year spell at reigning JD Cymru North Champions Prestatyn, where he won the Manager’s Player of the Season award at the end of the 2018/19 season.
The Nomads' newest signing joins JD Cymru Premier stalwart Aeron Edwards in making the switch to Deeside this summer as manager Andy Morrison looks to prepare his side for a first adventure into the UEFA Champions League Qualifying Rounds.
Davies is an ex-professional cricketer, having played for Northamptonshire as well as spending three separate stints in Australia playing the game, however he returned to Wales after injuring his arm and decided to get back into football.
Prior to becoming a successful cricketer, Danny started his career as a Prestatyn youngster before joining Chester City’s Academy. The attacking wing-back made his JD Cymru Premier debut for Prestatyn’s first team when he was 16 against Port Talbot Town and also claimed a Wales U17 cap against Scotland in 2012.
Following confirmation of his signing, Davies said: “It’s a great honour to be asked to come and join the champions and there’s going to be a lot riding on next year to back it up and I’m excited about that.”
Nomads boss Andy Morrison added: “We’re delighted to sign Danny - he’s a young player who, I believe, has the qualities to make a major impact at Connah’s Quay Nomads and in the JD Cymru Premier.”
