THE last surviving member of Bangor City's Welsh Premier League title-winning side of 2010/11 and a three-time Welsh Cup winner with the club, Sion Edwards has decided to move on in search of a fresh challenge.

"It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to part ways with Bangor City Football Club by mutual consent," Edwards says.

“Bangor City Football Club has been such a huge part of my life and it is incredibly difficult saying goodbye, but I feel it is something that's in the best interests of all involved, including my family and the club itself.

“My decision is completely based on my wish to experience something different and to make sure I have no regrets when my playing career is eventually over."

A left winger or midfielder who came through the Penrhosgarnedd youth system before gaining youth and reserve team experience at Wrexham, Edwards joined the Citizens in 2006 and, apart from a brief loan spell with Rhyl in 2016/17, spent the whole of his career with the Blues.

A Welsh Under-23 semi-professional international, he was voted into the Welsh Premier team of the season in both 2007/8 and 2008/9 and has scored 58 goals from his 232 (+93) WPL appearances.

In October 2015, he was named as the FAW's clubman of the year.
