FIVE Fixtures you should be attending in North Wales this week

With the North Wales football scene back in full swing again, with the Welsh Premier League and it’s feeder leagues in competitive action again, there are some exciting fixtures to attend in the first month.

Whether you’re an avid Welsh groundhopper or perhaps just have a couple of hours spare on a Saturday and want to watch the beautiful game in a village near you, these are some of North Wales’ most tasty affairs over the next week which you should consider attending.

Llandudno v Connah’s Quay Nomads

Starting in the Welsh Premier League, at 2.30 pm on Saturday, with a clash of two (of the 3) undefeated teams in the competition thus far, both teams have already proven they know how to score goals so expect to see a few at Maesdu Park

Recent Results:
Llandudno 3 – 0 Camarthen
Prestatyn 0 – 4 Connah’s Quay Nomads
Aberystwyth 0 – 2 Llandudno
Connah’s Quay Nomads 3 – 1 Camarthen

Porthmadog v Caernarfon

A midweek fixture as the current Cymru Alliance leaders, Porthmadog, host a team heavily tipped to win the league, Caernarfon Town at 7.30 pm on Wednesday night at Y Traeth.

The Cofis will be looking to regroup after an unpredicted loss to Holyhead Hotspur last week and will have to show all their quality to overcome a very confident Porthmadog who recently put seven past Llandudno Juction.

Recent Fixtures:
Porthmadog 2 – 0 Gresford Athletic
Penrhyncoch 1 – 2 Caernarfon Town
Llandudno Junction 1 – 7 Porthmadog
Caernarfon Town 1 – 2 Holyhead Hotspur

Corwen v Llanuwchllyn

Placed second and third in the Welsh National League Premier Division, both teams have showed real quality in the first couple week of competition and will both really want another win to help them to an early advantage in the competition.

The fixture is another Wednesday night (6.15 pm kick off) affair in Corwen and will be a firm test for both teams’ quality.

Recent Fixtures:
Corwen 3 – 1 Hawarden Rangers
Llanuwchllyn 5 – 1 Penycae
Chirk AAA 0 – 4 Corwen
Llanuwchllyn 2 – 1 Cefn Albion
Mold Alexandra 2 – 1 Corwen

Llanrug v Llangefni

Yet another Wednesday night fixture, this time at 6.30 pm, as last seasons third and fourth place in the Welsh Alliance face off.  Llangefni have won two from two and haven’t conceded a goal in either game wheras Llanrug have only played one game and drew.

Thus it is unpredictable what Llanrug may bring to the game which could make for a very exciting fixture in Llanrug.

Recent Fixtures:
Llangefni 2 – 0 Penrhyndeudraeth
Greenfield 2 – 2 Llanrug
Trearddur Bay 0 – 3 Llangefni

 Connah’s Quay Nomads U18s v Acton FC
North East Wales Football League is a relatively unknown hotbed of footballing talent and what could be one of its most mouthwatering clashes this season takes place on Saturday in Connah’s Quay.
Welsh Premier League Nomads’ Under 18s who have won 4 games on the trot take on an Acton side who although fairly untested are more than capable of winning any game they are given.

Nomads U18 2 – 0 Airbus Youth
Bradley Park 2 – 7 Acton FC
Bellevue 2 – 13 Nomads U18s
Caerwys 4 – 5 Nomads U18s
