Youngster rewarded after stepping up to the First Team this Season

Dan joined Airbus in July 2023, after completing a two year scholarship with Chester FC. As a youngster he had spells with Hartlepool and Middlesbrough Academies.

Collins joined our Under 19s section in July, and his impressive work and performances gained him a place in the First Team starting line-up against Holywell Town in the NEWFA Men's Senior Challenge Cup. In this game Dan assisted the first goal with a lovely through ball to Brad Knight.

Dan Collins is looking forward to next season already, "Buzzing to be signed on for next season, been a great season with the lads but hopefully this time we can push on to win the league this time round. Looking forward to gaining more and more experience around First Team football and hopefully adding a few more goals and assists to my name too"

Dan's Season has gone from strength to strength where he has made 16 JD Cymru North appearances, including 3 in cup competitions. He scored his first senior goal in January against Bangor at home and another followed in our 4-0 home win against Prestatyn.

As well as his step-up to the First Team, Dan has been a vital part for our Under 19s/Reserves teams, making 11 appearance in the league, as well as contributing with 6 goals and 3 assists.

Mark Allen was happy with Collins agreeing to stay on next season, "Delighted to sign Dan for next season. He really has developed so well over the season and has taken his chance when it has come along. We are looking forward to him continuing to progress and him pushing for a regular starting place"
