Prestatyn Town have announed that top-scorer Andy Parkinson has extended his stay with the Seasiders, penning a deal to keep him at the club until the end of next season.

"Town are pleased to announce that leading goalscorer Andy Parkinson has signed a new deal keeping him at Prestatyn until the end of next season (2013/14);" wrote the statement on Saturday.

"Liverpool-born Parkinson, 33, can play as a forward, attacking midfielder or a winger and spent last season at Aberystwyth Town where his talents were not fully utilised by the Black and Greens.

Since joining Prestatyn in the summer of 2012, he has been a revelation in the red shirt of the Seasiders and currently heads the Welsh Premier League scoring table with 16 goals so far.

Parkinson began his career as a trainee at Liverpool where he won the 1996 FA Youth Cup then moved across the water to Tranmere Rovers where he featured in the 2000 League Cup final against Leicester City.

He went on to play for Sheffield United, Notts County, Grimsby Town, Cambridge United, Gateshead and Accrington Stanley before ending up in the WPL at Aberystwyth.

Everyone at Bastion Gardens will be delighted to hear that he has committed to the club in their push to bring European football to the seaside."
