Photo special: Dinamo Bucharest & Ludogorets Razgrad visit Connah’s Quay

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.

  1. Just reread your comments on the WPL entrants in the Europa League Airbus have the hardest task so you say well perhaps you had better rethink that one as they are the only one to come out with any credit. The other 2 well what can you say 8-0 and 9-0. Think a lot of thought needs to take place with regard to the format of the WPL the nonsense of teams playing each other 6 or more times per season is ludicrous. Perhaps the WPL should be extended to 18ish and then have a Div1 S and Div1 N similar perhaps to the English Conference. I know that money is a major factor but sponsorship and the use of the WPL must be looked at.
