Marc Smyth has joined Prestatyn Town

Prestatyn Town manager Neil Gibson has brought in two players just before the window closed, with one new face arriving as well as a former favourite returning to Bastion Road.

Former Bangor City striker Mark Smyth signed for the Seasiders on Thursday morning to become the first capture of the transfer window.

Smyth made one Carling Cup appearance for Liverpool against Tottenham but was released from Anfield in 2005 and played for Accrington Stanley and Vauxhall Motors, signing for Bangor in December 2006.

He left to join former manager Steve Bleasdale at Leigh RMI in October 2007, returning to Farrar Road briefly for the Uefa Cup campaign in July the following year.

After a further spell with Leigh he was back at Farrar Road in November 2010 and he scored 23 goals in the WPL from 54 (+40) appearances.

Returning to the club is Jon Fisher-Cooke to help Gibson's push for Europe. The club wrote that he went into semi-retirement last year but has re-signed as striking cover and will be a welcome addition to the Seasiders squad.

The frontman, who has made a total of 57 (+53) appearances in the Welsh Premier, netting 18 times, has also worn the colours of Rhyl, Flexys Cefn Druids, Colwyn Bay and Denbigh Town and is a former Welsh Schoolboys international.

"He will perhaps be best and most fondly remembered by Town fans for netting the goals that clinched us the Welsh Alliance League title in 2005/6;" concluded the statement.
