GOALKEEPER Chris Sanna has left Cefn Druids without playing a game to rejoin Colwyn Bay.

The Ancients announced at the beginning of December that they had signed the 27-year-old, who would have been eligible to play in January, but the Seagulls have announced that Sanna is now back at Llanelian Road.

"I’m delighted to welcome Chris back to the club to compete for the number one shirt," said manager Frank Sinclair. "Talking to the player he seems excited to be coming back to what everyone in the club feels is his home."

Sanna left Colwyn Bay seven months ago after seven seasons and 227 appearances. A product of Stoke City’s academy, he played a big part in Colwyn's back-to-back promotions, first under Neil Young in 2010 and then with Dave Challinor as boss in 2011.

He followed manager Neil Young to Chester in November 2010 but returned to the Bay and, in January 2012, kept five consecutive clean sheets which helped then player-boss Jon Newby win the Conference North’s Manager of the Month award, before a serious shoulder injury ruled him out for the rest of the season.

The following season he was voted player of the season by Bay supporters and scored the first goal of his career in November 2013 for against Solihull Moors, launching a long clearance which caught opposite number Jasbir Singhtoo far off his line.
