An attacking midfielder, Flynn returns to the club with whom he began his career this summer, a move perceived by many to be Justin Edinburgh’s ‘marquee’ close-season signing.
A local product of undoubted quality, his first stint with the Exiles saw him progress from academy lad to first team regular, before a switch to then full-time outfit Barry Town in 2000 where he plundered 40 goals in just two seasons.
A £70,000 move to Wigan Athletic duly followed in 2002 where he was part of the Latics squad that won the Division Two league title.
After a brief loan spell with Blackpool, he signed for Gillingham in 2005 where he netted 19 times in 97 appearances, before leaving for Blackpool two years later where he scored a further three goals in 26 matches.
Huddersfield Town was his next club the following season, during a stint when he also spent a loan period with Darlington, before signing for Bradford City in August of 2009.
He notched ten goals in 97 appearances during his three years at Valley Parade, before that well received ‘return home’.
