Rhyl striker Jones returns to Maesdu Park with Premier League ambition
Rhyl FC forward Toby Jones has returned to Welsh Premier League, signing for Llandudno after telling Rhyl he wanted to play at the highest level.
Jones spent the whole of last season with the Lilywhites, but was unable to prevent them from relegation to the Cymru Alliance.
The 24 year-old thanked manager Niall McGuiness and Rhyl for the season he had at the club but stated he needed to be playing at a higher level than the Cymru Alliance.

Tudno manager, Alan Morgan, spoke to the Daily Post and said: “I am glad he has come back to play for the club and am looking forward to seeing him in pre-season.
“At the time (he left the club previously), I was disappointed to lose him when we won promotion. I’ve been after him since January but he wanted to stay and help Rhyl in their relegation fight, which I commend him for and I add my thanks to Rhyl for their co-operation in this move.”
Jones scored six goals in 34 appearances for the Belle Vue outfit last season, and was voted for Player’ Player and Supporters’ Player of the year.
Rhyl boss Niall McGuinness has confirmed that he is in discussions to strengthen his attacking options and that new additions would be confirmed over the coming weeks.
He also said that he had “done all he could to keep Toby at the club but it was Toby’s decision to leave the club to continue to play at the highest level of Welsh Football.”
