EXPERIENCED defender Sam Hart has returned to the Hollingsworth Group Stadium some four and a half years after leaving to join Bangor City.

The Chester-born 27-year-old progressed through the youth ranks at Preston North End and signed a 12-month professional contract in May 2010.

Although being English and qualifying to represent Scotland, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland through grandparents, he represented Wales at schoolboy level in the Victory shield and at Under-17 and Under-19 levels in the European championships.

Sam joined the Wingmakers in the summer of 2012 and scored four goals from 32 (+11) Welsh Premier appearances before leaving for Bangor. After two and a half seasons with the Citizens, he moved to Llandudno in January 2017 and made a total of 137 (+19) WPL appearances scoring 21 goals, before signing for Flint Town United last July.
