Hogg scores again as Sion Edwards signs the Bay

May 14, 2019

Colwyn Bay  manager Craig Hogg has pulled off another major coup by agreeing terms with outstanding midfielder Sion Edwards.

The 31-year-old left sided players' impressive successes include a Welsh League championship medal with Bangor City,  three Welsh Cup winners medals, two runners-up medals and 13 European appearances.

His performance saw him voted the most influential Bangor City player of the past decade.

He joined Bangor from Wrexham and made well over 200 appearances for them, scoring 58 goals, before joining Porthmadog in December 2017. He had a big influence on Port's young squad, scoring a remarkable goal from 40 yards in a win against Rhyl, and the past season helped Porthmadog finish in the top three of the Huws Gray Cymru Alliance.

Bay boss Craig Hogg said: "Its great news for us I feel. Sion ticks so many boxes for us and I think he could well prove to be a very important addition. 

"He’s now living in Sychnant, Conwy, and has played nearly 15 years of his football in Wales. He has unrivalled football experiences that will benefit our group of players for sure.

"Sion isn’t just a winner by nature, he’s also a winner by fact. He’s won pretty much everything you can in Wales and has about a dozen European appearances on his CV to. There aren’t many other Bangor lads who can boast that.

"He offers us a great deal of versatility, good quality and much energy. As a management team we are pleased he’s agreed to be part of the project, we welcome him and look forward to working with the player."

Sion said: "I'm really happy to sign for Colwyn Bay. It’s a big club making the change from the English system back to Wales and that interests me a lot. The project the club have is very exiting.

"I’ve known Craig for a long time and when we met and spoke it was clear to me that he has so much ambition in football - the attitude he has towards everything he does is clear and there to see, I really like that.

"I’ll be honest ,it was a very difficult decision to leave Porthmadog as it’s a brilliant club,  with brilliant people and I really enjoyed my time there.

"But I’m looking forward to pre season, working with everyone here and, like the rest of the lads, I can’t wait to get going."
