HOLDER of the Wingmakers' Welsh Premier appearances record with 185 starts, midfielder Ryan Edwards has returned to the Hollingsworth Group Stadium after four successful seasons with Bangor City as Andy Thomas makes his first signings since stepping into the managerial seat.

Formerly with Flint Town United, Cefn Druids and Halkyn United, Edwards first joined Airbus in season 2006/7 and went on to win Wales Under-23 semi-professional honours. 

He was the longest-serving player at the Wingmakers when he bought out his contract in August 2012 and signed for the Citizens.

Also making a return is Ryan Fraughan, who was released at the end of last season.

He joined Aberystwyth Town on loan from Tranmere Rovers in January 2010 having made his Football League debut for the Wirral outfit on 8 August 2009 against Yeovil Town at Huish Park. 

He was rewarded for an excellent spell at Park Avenue with a new one-year deal at Prenton Park but was released at the end of 2010/11 and joined Stockport County. 

Loaned to The New Saints in January 2012, Fraughan made a permanent move to Park Hall in the summer and was voted the Welsh Premier young player of the season for 2012/13. 

Loaned to Gap Connah's Quay in January 2015, he joined the Wingmakers in the summer of the same year.

Meanwhile, the club confirms that Fabuo Bassangue has not been registered and has left the club.
