GAP Connah’s Quay’s pre-season got off to a unique start last week as two of the true heavyweights of Eastern European football came to town…
The Nomads hosted Romanian giants Dinamo Bucharest last Wednesday before entertaining Bulgarian league and cup winners Ludogorets Razgrad at the Deeside Stadium on Saturday. The visitors won 5-0 and 7-0 respectively.

Connah’s Quay will be looking to improve on their 10th-place finish next season and have already secured the signings of former Wrexham duo Jay Colbeck and Kyle Parle, along with returning defender George Horan. Well-respected WPL coach Allan Bickerstaff has also been appointed on the club’s backroom staff, while long-serving midfielder Danny Forde and marksman Mike Hayes have both departed.
