Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club Colwyn Bay`s interim-manager Phil Hadland has made two defensive signings.

He has brought Sam Barnes back to the club from high-fling league rivals Glossop North End and also signed 22-year-old Matt Regan from NPL First Division South side Northwich Victoria.

Barnes joined Glossop from Bay in November 2015.

He has played at Northwich and Marine AFC before joining Hednesford Town in 2012, helping the Pitmen win promotion from the NPL Premier Division in the 2012/13 season.

Left-sided central defender Regan joined Vics in the summer of 2015 from Stalybridge Celtic.

He signed for Celtic from Tamworth – a club he joined in May 2013 from Nottingham Forest.

Beset with a few injuries he was on loan at Hednesford and at Worcester City, both of whom were keen to keep him, Hednesford especially.

He started his career at Wrexham in the youth team, but transferred across to Liverpool, for whom he was a regular in their under-21s, and whilst at Liverpool played for the England under-21s, getting to the quarter-finals with the England under-17s in 2011.

After his release from Liverpool’s youth system he was snapped up by Nottingham Forest, but failed to break into the first team, and Tamworth were more than happy to give him a place after a loan spell proved his worth to the Lambs.
