GUILSFIELD have been dealt a blow with the departure of Louis Irvine to J D Welsh Premier strugglers Prestatyn Town.

The striker arrived at Clos Mytton from West Midlands League side Ellesmere Rangers during the summer of 2016 having also represented Haughmond, Bridgnorth Town and Shawbury Town.

Irvine becomes the first signing of new Prestatyn Town manager Gareth Wilson who took over at Bastion Road this week following the departure of the long serving Neil Gibson to become No2 at Connahs Quay Nomads.

Guils manager has moved swiftly to fill the void with the return of Jack Harris to the Huws Gray Alliance club from North West Counties League side FC Oswestry Town.
