Another old face is back at Bastion Gardens after defender Jack Lewis today signed up for the Seasiders.

An accomplished full back who likes to push forward, Lewis made 97 WPL appearances in a Town shirt, scoring five times before leaving in May 2011 for an ill-fated season with Neath.

He appeared 31 times in the league for the Gnoll Eagles before their financial collapse in the 2012 close season. He then switched to Airbus UK but his starts were limited to 14 games netting him two goals. Midway through the season he left the Airfield for a spell with Rhyl.

Lewis said he was thrilled to be back at Bastion Gardens and was looking forward to the challenges ahead.

"I'm delighted to have the opportunity to play for Prestatyn again, I feel like I've finally come home after two years away. I can't wait to start playing with the lads again and the opportunity to re-sign for Neil Gibson was something I couldn't turn down," he said.

"Hopefully I can help in our fight for a strong league finish and defend the Welsh Cup. I've missed everything about the club - the lads, the fans and the family feel."

Director of Football Neil Gibson added that he was pleased Lewis had returned to the fold and felt he had plenty to offer the team.

"I am extremely pleased Jack has decided to rejoin, he was here for a long time and played a big part in the club's early success and after gaining valuable full-time experience with Neath he returns with plenty to offer as we continue to move forward as a club.

"He is a very talented and accomplished player who ticks all the boxes for the type of lads I want at the club. He is a local lad and can offer options in a number of positions - I am sure he will want to cement his place in the side as he did in his previous time with us.

"I am sure everyone at the club will be pleased to see him back."
