Plenty of Scottish football fans are angry at Welsh side Nomads reaching Irn-Bru Cup final

Scottish football fans have taken to social media to show their displeasure after Welsh side Connah’s Quay Nomads reached the Scottish Challenge Cup final.

Scotsman Andy Morrison led the 2018/2019 Welsh Cup winners to the Final on Saturday after they beat fourth-tier Edinburgh City on penalties.

The Deeside club are the first non-Scottish club to reach the final of the competition after the SPFL opened up the Cup to non-Scottish sides three seasons ago.

The Nomads are now in contention for three competitions. They currently lead the Welsh Premier League and are in the Quarter-Finals of the JD Welsh Cup.

However, there was an alternative view that the addition of teams like Connah’s Quay have improved the stature of the competition after their inclusion.


English Premier League footballer and Connah’s Quay academy product Rhys Healey was also on hand to congratulate his former side.

The Nomads will now await when and where the Irn-Bru Cup Final will be. It is due to be played on either Saturday 23rd March or Sunday 24th March. It is to be broadcast on BT Sport. Wales are scheduled to begin their UEFA European Championship Qualifying campaign at the Cardiff City Stadium on the same day.
