Shannon: “We are not going there just for the day out.”
Aden Shannon says his side aren’t just there for the occasion and instead are looking to glory in the Huws Gray Alliance Cup final.
Shannon is looking forward to being in the Huws Gray Cup for a second year and wants his side to win it this time around after losing to Caernarfon last year.
“It’s great to be in the final for the 2nd year running but I am just hoping that we can win this one as it was tough to take last year, we have a good fan base and I am just hoping we can win it for them.”
It is a repeat of last years final and Aden Shannon believes the game can go either way.
“I think Saturday can honestly go either way, Caernarfon are one of the best teams in the league they won the league comfortably last season. They also have a great fan base. It’s going to be a tough game, but its going to be a tough game for them, we’re not going there for a day out.”
Flint’s last game with Caernarfon was an entertaining draw and that could be a sign of motivation for their team.
“We drew with them last week in a very entertaining game and it was played in the right way in an end to end game, we will take confidence from the game as it was a good point.”
Shannon is under no illusion that Flint’s form has faded towards the end of the season and he is hoping his side can pick themselves up from that and perform on the day.
“The form in the last few weeks haven’t been our best we know that but that’s not down to us not playing well, unfortunately we just haven’t had the rub of the green in games and no luck whatsoever but sometimes we have to make our own luck… The lads have trained really well lately and we are all looking forward to Saturday.”
Flint will be with out key players for this year final as a number of players are ruled out with injury.
“The biggest blow this season for us was losing Chris Roberts, Ste Cunningham and Luke Douglas all long term we have missed them all season. We played on Monday and again no luck with injuries Andy Brown is doubtful, Stuart Carroll came off with a knock and James Hooper twinged his back, so we will asses this week and see how we get on.”
The North Walian second tier show case is at Conwy Borough’s Y Morfa, with a 2:30 KO.
