Connah’s Quay Nomads’ director of football Jay Catton has committed to the club with a three year contract extension.
Catton, who has been at the club for 13 years, is assistant to first team manager Andy Morrison and oversees the club’s expansive academy.
He was originally a first team player, but moved into management after sustaining a knee injury.
During his time at the club Catton has helped engineer two consecutive Huws Gray Alliance titles, back to back Europa League campaigns and has secured a number of professional contracts and first team starts for academy players, most notably current Cardiff City forward Rhys Healey.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said:
“I am very pleased to sign a contract extension in my role at the Club.
“As we continue to grow on and off the field, it has never been a more exciting time to be involved at this great club with an unbelievably exciting future ahead for all involved and the area of Connah’s Quay and Deeside.
“The opportunity to continue to work alongside first team manager, Andy Morrison was a big pull as we continue to transition to a full-time club. There are a lot of challenges and transitions ahead but this is a move which will secure the long-term stability of the club and highlights the drive and ambition which is key to progress the football club.
“On all fronts, the club continues to develop and strive for improvement in key sectors including Quay in the Community, our scholarship program with Coleg Cambria, The Quay 3G and arguably the most important sector at the football club, The Nomads Academy – aiding our next generation of players to Football League or Premier League clubs, scholars and our very own first team in the JD Sports Welsh Premier League.
“I can’t thank the club enough for this opportunity and look forward to continuing the great work alongside our outstanding staff, players and volunteers across all sectors of the football club.”
Connah’s Quay Nomads are currently preparing for their final JD Welsh Premier League phase one fixture away to Aberystwyth Town this coming Saturday.
