Connah’s Quay Nomads snap up Bangor City defender Danny Holmes
Bangor City defender Danny Holmes will remain in the Welsh Premier League after signing with the Connah’s Quay Nomads.
Holmes who joined Bangor City last season after leaving Conference side York City, has joined Andy Morrison’s men after their recent Welsh Cup win.
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Danny Holmes to Connah’s Quay,” said manager Andy Morrison when speaking to the-nomads.co.uk.
For me, Danny was the outstanding full-back in the league last season and he further strengthens our squad going forwards.”
The 29-year-old has a vast ton of experience, both in the Welsh Premier League and in the Football League, racking up in total 350 appearances. This season he made a total of 24 appearances for the Citizens, scoring on the one occasion.
The Nomads were ranked the most solid defence in the league for the second year running, after conceding the fewest goals as they secured a third placed finish, just behind Holmes’ old side Bangor City.
Holmes is one of the first players to depart the Citizens following their demotion to the Cymru Alliance. Manager Kevin Nicholson and Assistant Manager Gary Taylor-Fletcher announces their departures from the club yesterday.
