Welsh Alliance Preview: Relegation clash as Barmouth host Mynydd Llandegai
A big weekend ahead is promised in the Welsh Alliance Leagues, with a big clash taking place as Mynydd Llandegai and Barmouth do battle at the wrong end of Division One.
With the majority of Division One sides taking part in Cup action this weekend, it’ll be a chance for the six sides playing in the League to gain momentum and leapfrog some of the teams not playing.
In Division Two, 14 teams are in action, with some matches looking certain to be action-packed in a big weekend for the Welsh Alliance leagues.
WELSH ALLIANCE Division One
Barmouth Dyffryn vs Mynydd Llandegai
The hosts sit just five points ahead of Llandudno Junction at the bottom of the table, and will be hoping to build on their 3-3 draw away at St Asaph City in their previous league match. Mynydd Llandegai meanwhile, come into the match in a fine run of form, with the side unbeaten in their last five matches.
Llanrwst United vs Llanberis
These teams are separated by five points heading into this match, with Llanrwst sitting fifth in the league, and the visitors finding themselves trailing in 11th. The hosts will be hoping to carry on the impressive performance, which saw them clinch a 2-0 victory against Penrhyndeudraeth last weekend.
Prestatyn Sports vs Llandyrnog United
Prestatyn Sports come into the match on the back of a 3-2 victory against Greenfield, which ended a two game losing streak for the hosts. Llandyrnog United meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last three matches, with two wins and one draw during that spell.
WELSH ALLIANCE Division Two
Aberffraw vs Kinmel Bay
Both these sides have been in a fantastic run of form recently, with only nine points separating the two teams. Kinmel Bay have won their previous six matches heading into this match, with Aberffraw unbeaten in their last four matches.
Gaerwen vs Glan Conwy
The hosts are sitting in 13th position heading into this match, and will be hoping to put in a better performance than in their last match, which ended in a 4-0 defeat to league leaders Blaenau Amateurs. Glan Conwy meanwhile, are currently in fourth place, and will be hoping to increase the pressure on the teams above them with a good result.
Holyhead Town vs Penmaenmawr Phoenix
The hosts have been in a poor run of form in recent weeks, and head into the match having slipped to 12th in the league, just three places off the bottom. Penmaenmawr Phoenix are unbeaten in five matches heading into this match, and will be keen to continue that impressive run of form.
Llannefydd vs Pentraeth
The hosts have won their last three matches, and, with the side currently sitting third in the league, they’ll be hoping that a good result puts pressure on Blaenau Amateurs and Kinmel Bay, the only two sides above them in the table. Pentraeth meanwhile, are sitting in ninth place, but have four losses and only one victory in their last five matches, an alarming run of form that they’ll be desperate to halt.
Meliden vs Blaenau Amateurs
Meliden come into the match on the back of a three game losing streak, and will be desperate to end their poor run of form. Blaenau Amateurs are still four points clear at the top of the Division Two table, and have won their last five matches, scoring 14 and only conceding twice in that run.
Mochdre Sports vs Llannerchymedd
Mochdre Sports head into this match with four losses in their last five matches, and remain second bottom of the table. Llannerchymedd meanwhile, have three losses, one draw and one victory in their previous five matches, and will be hoping to build on the 3-0 victory against Holyhead Town in their last match.
Y Felinheli vs Amlwch Town
It’s a story of two teams having unique seasons in this match, with Felinheli the only team still unbeaten in the league this season, and Amlwch Town the only team yet to win a single point.
