Chief Exec Programme notes v Cardiff Met 16/12/2023 kick off 2.30pm.

NADOLIG LLAWEN PAWB!! Maes Tegid gives you a very warm welcome back for our last home fixture before Christmas and wishes you all a very happy festive period. Our last Home League fixture against Caernarfon ended with a slightly disappointing draw but since then we have travelled far afield and been rewarded with 2 excellent wins. The League fixture performance away in Penybont was superb when we rattled in 2 early goals and then controlled the remainder of the match to restrict the Home side to very limited opportunities. It was an excellent example of match management and the 3 points secured there will be a massive help in our target of a top 6 finish with only 4 matches remaining before the split. We then returned to Cardiff last Saturday for a crucial last 16 tie in the prestigious Welsh Cup at Caerau Ely. The match was in serious doubt right up to kick off time with waterlogging being the major problem. However the correct decision was made and the game went ahead with a howling gale blowing straight down the pitch. This was always going to make it a game of 2 halves and this was certainly the outcome. We had the gale behind us in the first half and its strength was clearly demonstrated by our goalkeeper Kelland Absalom scoring with a huge boot from his own penalty area which sailed over the stunned keeper at the other end! 3 more goals were added before halftime but the 4-0 lead was by no means game over. The team however once again managed the conditions and the match superbly allowing the home side to only strike once in the half and themselves missing several good opportunities to extend the lead. A great result and we are into the Quarter Final draw!

The match this afternoon will be crucial again to our chances of remaining in the top 6. It will be a huge test against the visitors today who lie one place above us in the League. Surely a win for either side would almost guarantee the target would be achieved and the match will hopefully live up to the anticipated entertainment of the build up. The 3 points would be a fantastic present to take to our Christmas get together in the Plas after the game. We hope as many of our supporters as possible will join us for this festive celebration!!

Our Boxing Day fixture sees us travel to Colwyn Bay for a 2.30pm kick off and then we complete 2023 with a Home fixture against Newtown on Saturday December 30th again with a 2.30 pm kick off at Maes Tegid. Your support as always for all these matches and events would be hugely appreciated.
