Edwards and Gibbs return to Llandudno as youngsters pen first-team deals
Jay Gibbs and Zebb Edwards have returned to Welsh Premier League side Llandudno after spells away from Maesdu Park.
Both players had been playing their football in the Cymru Alliance, before rejoining Llandudno. Gibbs had been playing for the Seasiders in January before leaving for Porthmadog, whilst Edwards was a summer signing.
Edwards had previously been playing with Holywell Town, whilst Gibbs was playing for Porthmadog. He links up with brother Zyaac again.
Speaking to PorthmadogFC.com, Port manager Craig Papirnyk had this to say on the departure of Gibbs: “I am very disappointed to be losing a player of Jay’s calibre.
“He has no doubt strengthened us this season and helped others within the squad improve.
“Jay feels that he has a point to prove in the WPL and wants to give it another go at that level.
“From a playing point of view, I understand his reasoning, although frustrating to be losing a quality player. I would like to wish him all the best.”
New Saints loanee Ben Clark has also signed an extension to his current loan, whilst four youth players have put pen to paper to professional forms.
Adam Montgomery, Ben Jarvis, Dafydd Thomas and Elliot Jarvis have all signed professional forms with Llandudno today.
The return of Edwards and Gibbs will void the gap left by Leo Smith. Smith’s loan spell from Wrexham expired after the Dragons youngster played in the draw with Caernarfon Town on New Years Day. Wales C international John Owen has also left the club. He has joined fellow Welsh Premier League side Cefn Druids.
