COLWYN BAY travel to third-bottom Chirk AAA on Saturday with Lewis Sirrell set to make his 50th appearance for the club.

The 29-year-old defender, who signed a new two-year contract last March, has played in all but two of this season’s 23 league and cup fixtures and scored five goals – including a penalty in the Nathaniel MG Cup game against Flint Town United.

He joined the Bay in 2020 and made his debut in a Nathaniel Cup game at Buckley before the 2020/21 season was cancelled due to Covid.

His league debut came in a 3-0 win at Gresford in July 2021, with his first goal for the club scored in a 3-1 win at Llangefni the following the month.

He has been a commanding figure for Bay, who will be looking to extend their unbeaten league record to 19 games on Saturday against a Chirk team who have won only twice in their 19 league games (eight draws and nine defeats) since winning promotion last summer, and have gone 11 games since their last win ( 2-1 against Prestatyn in September).

Seagulls boss Steve Evans said: “It will be a battle and we’ll have to roll our sleeves up again, but we’re looking forward to the challenge.”
