THE Seagulls have signed Australian Under 21 international defender Dan Collins on loan from Wrexham in time for Saturday’s away game at Tadcaster Albion.
The 21-year-old, who has recently been on loan to Rhyl, was born in South Africa but raised in Sydney, Australia, where he played for Marconi Stallions, before moving to North Wales to sign for Bala Town in 2014.
He joined Wrexham under the Glyndwr Wrexham Football Academy where he is studying for BA degree in accounting.
He links up with a depleted Colwyn Bay squad that is without four of their potential first choice eleven for the game at Tadcaster.
Having won promotion last season, Tadcaster have had a poor run of late themselves, dropping into the bottom eight of the table with only one win in their last nine league games and losing four and drawing one of their last five of those at home.
In prolific striker Carl Stewart, who has recently returned to the club from Scarborough Athletic, they also have one the Evostik Divison One North’s top four goal scorers this season with 17 goals in all games (12 of them with Scarborough)
