New loan signing Danny Reynolds

COLWYN BAY have reached agreement with Wrexham to take  exciting young striker Danny Reynolds on loan ahead of Saturday’s Integro Doodson League Cup first round tie at Hyde United.

Seagulls boss Kevin Lynch said: “He is a good young prospect and adds to the positive signings we have made recently.

“You are always looking to improve at the top end of the field with creativity and goal scoring and Danny will help do that.”

Reynolds, who was a prolific scorer for Wrexham’s youth team, has since progressed to the reserves and has also made a couple of first team appearances, making his senior debut against Braintree Town last season.

If the paperwork comes through in time, he is expected to be involved for the first time in the cup game at Hyde  (weather permitting).

The two clubs have also this week agreed on  extending the loan spell of young winger Joe Newton for a further a month.

“Joe is an exciting young player with an a fantastic attitude who fits in with what we are trying to do here and we are delighted to have him for another month,” added the manager.

The Seagulls have also extended the loan spell of James Graham from Everton for a further month, although he is currently away with the Wales Under-19 squad and helped them to an excellent 3-0 victory over hosts Georgia in Tblisi on Thursday in the UEFA  U19 qualifying tournament.

With Rob Hopley and Mike  Lea having recovered from injuries, Kevin Lynch reports he has virtually a full strength squad to choose from and admits he has some tough selection decisions to make.

“Its tough because everybody wants to play and that isn’t possible,” added the manager.

Antonie Boland, however, won’t be available as his transfer from Salford can’t be completed until next week.

Hyde have had their last two scheduled home games postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Ewen Fields and are likely to have a pitch inspection in the morning with more heavy rain forecast.

If the game does go ahead, Hyde have reduced admission prices to £5 for adults, £3 for pensioners and £1 for Under 16s.

The winners of the tie will be away to Radcliffe Borough in the second round, scheduled for Tuesday December 1.
