Former Huddersfield Town skipper Andy Morrison is preparing for a Europa League campaign.

The 45-year-old is the manager of Gap Connah’s Quay.

They beat Airbus UK Broughton 1-0 in the Welsh Premier League play-off final.

And that earned them Europa League qualification for the first time alongside Bala Town (WPL runners-up) and MBi Llandudno (third).

Title winners The New Saints will play in the Champions League.
