Llandudno sides set for inaugural derby in Welsh Alliance

With 11 matches being played across the two Welsh Alliance divisions, this weekend promises to be an unmissable feast of entertainment, with each side hoping to improve on their current standings to be a stronger position come Christmas. 

In Division One, history will be made as Llandudno Junction and Llandudno Albion will play out their first ever fixture against each other, whilst Blaenau Amateurs will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table at struggling Gaerwen.

Welsh Alliance Division One

Llanberis vs Llandyrnog United
Both sides come into this match in a poor run of form, despite both winning their previous league match. With just two points separating these teams, this match looks set to be an entertaining affair between two evenly-matched sides.

Llandudno Junction vs Llandudno Albion
It’s derby day for these two, as they battle over bragging rights this weekend. It’s a big game between the two close rivals, who are meeting competitively for the first time ever. With Junction struggling at the bottom of the table, and Llandudno Albion sitting fourth in the table, with the latter having the chance to move up into the top three with a win as none of the teams above them are in action this weekend.

Llanrwst United vs Penrhyndeudraeth
Llanrwst United will be hoping to bounce back from their 4-3 defeat to Llandudno Albion a fortnight ago. The visitors meanwhile, will be hoping league top scorer Meilir Williams continues his fine run of form in front of goal, as they hope to recover from a patchy run of form in recent weeks.

St Asaph City vs Barmouth Dyffryn
Both these sides are struggling near the bottom of the table, with St Asaph City currently three points ahead of their opponents Barmouth Dyffryn in the league standings.

Welsh Alliance Division Two

Aberffraw vs Mochdre Sports
Aberffraw are currently sixth in the league table, and head into the match having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches. The visitors meanwhile, are currently second bottom in the league standings, and are eight points clear of bottom-placed Amlwch Town heading into this match, and will be hoping that a victory will help fire them up the table.

Amlwch Town vs Penmaenmawr Phoenix
The hosts have still yet to pick up a single point this season, and will be well aware that their chances of being relegated at the end of the season is growing with every passing match. The visitors will therefore be favourites to pick up the win, and head into the match in a good run of form that has seen them remain unbeaten in their last five matches, picking up three wins and two draws.
