Connah's Quay Nomads are delighted to announce that Andy Morrison has signed a new contract with the club.
Morrison originally joined The Nomads in November 2015 with the club sitting rock bottom of the then Welsh Premier League. In his first six months in charge, Andy led the team to the Top Six for the first time ever and then went on to qualify for the UEFA Europa League thanks to a 1-0 victory over Airbus at Deeside Stadium.
Since then, Morrison's achievements at the club have gone from strength to strength, following up our first ever Europa League qualification with a second, third and second place finish in the League in the following three seasons respectively, again qualifying for Europe on each occasion.
In 2018, Morrison led the side to our first ever Welsh Cup success in beating Aberystwyth 4-1 at Newtown's Latham Park, and that same stadium was the site of our most recent success this past weekend as we won the Nathaniel MG Cup for the first time since 1996.
Andy's new deal sees him committed to the club until at least the end of the 2021/22 season, so hopefully there will be more history making moments to come in his tenure.
Owner Gary Dewhurst commented;
"I am delighted we've agreed a two year extension to Andy's contract, taking us through to the summer of 2022.
Since his appointment in the autumn of 2015, the club has gone from strength to strength, both on and off the field and Andy has demonstrated outstanding leadership, loyalty and conviction during this time.
Continuity is a crucial element of success in football and with Jay Catton recently extending his contract too, Connah's Quay Nomads are well placed to face the challenges ahead."
