Manager Frank Sinclair commented: “I’m very disappointed to lose him and a bit surprised he has decided to drop two divisions to join Salford, but we wish him good luck and are working hard to try and bring in a replacement before the Christmas and New Year games.”
Salford are now owned by a group of ex-Manchester United players including Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, and Manchester-based Tom texted: “I’m sorry to go and was very happy at Colwyn Bay, but it (Salford) was a lot more convenient and was hard to turn down. Send my regards to everyone at Colwyn. It’s been a pleasure.”
He has played 19 games for the Bay, scoring five goals, since joining the club from Stalybridge Celtic in the summer.
