TOP SCORER for the Bay as they finished in fourth place in the JD Cymru North in their first season back in Welsh football.

30-year-old attacker Bryant was one of tier two’s standout performers with an impressive 14 goals and 12 assists to his name in 26 appearances.

His experience of having played for the likes of Basingstoke Town in the Conference South, Gloucester City, Hitchin Town, stood him in good stead to score goals at tier two level in North Wales.

And, having joined the Seagulls in the summer of 2019, Bryant went on to make an instant impact for Craig Hogg’s side an really caught the eye with some brilliant performances throughout the course of the season.

Unfortunately for the Bay that meant that English clubs became interested in the former Manchester United academy player and, despite reportedly extending his contract with the club in July of last year, Bryant eventually departed for Bury AFC and then Northern Premier League club City of Liverpool FC.

However, just last week the Bay announced that their 2019/20 Managers Player of the Season has again returned to the club, with manager Hogg saying he had been ‘exceptional’ for the club last season.
