MANAGER Phill Hadland is delighted to report that Jamie Rainford, winner of the Top Scorer award at the end of last season, is one of five players who have so far signed on again for the 2017/18 campaign

Dan Collins, Danny Bartle, Danny Andrews and Astley Mulholland are the others.

Jamie scored nine  goals in 14 appearances for the Seagulls after signing from Glossop North End in February, including a hat-trick in the 6-0 win over Burscough.

Danny Andrews played in all but six of Bay’s 48 games and scored eight goals, while Danny Bartle scored four goals in 13 games after making the step up from North West Counties side Sandbach Town and Astley Mulholland made a big impact in the seven games he played after being signed from Glossop North End in March.

The versatile Dan Collins joined initially on loan from Wrexham in February and made 10 appearances.

Kieran Wolland, who was also on  loan from Wrexham, has left the club and we wish him well for the future.
