CONNAH'S Quay have announced that they are to drop the name of sponsor gap Personnel from their name.

A statement from the Deeside Stadium on Tuesday said: "With immediate effect, the club will no longer be known as gap Connah's Quay Nomads, but will revert back to their original name, Connah's Quay Nomads FC, thus removing the sponsor's prefix. This was ratified by the FAW earlier today."

Club Owner Gary Dewhurst commented: "At the recent Nomads Hall of Fame induction ceremony, the 70 year old history of the Club and the generational links to the local community, impressed upon me the need to remove the commercial name tag of my company, gap personnel.

"The success of the Nomads, in the Welsh Premier League and the UK-wide PR associated with our UEFA Europa League adventures, should be about Connah's Quay the town, not gap.

"It goes without saying that both myself and the company remain wholly committed to supporting the club, its' renowned academy, the Quay 3G and the Quay clubhouse and cafe going forwards and I personally look forward to challenging TNS' dominance in the Welsh Premier League."
