I write these notes immediately after a late night return from Flint after experiencing another deluge of wet weather and another deluge of antagonism from a Connahs Quay match! It is indeed I believe extremely challenging for Clubs such as ourselves who run on a part time professional basis to play midweek fixtures as everyone has to finish work, get themselves ready for a match, travel fairly long distances and then return home late only to get up early next day to return to work. Inclement weather and an inhospitable atmosphere do nothing to alleviate those stresses. However we returned from a rain sodden Flint with a point in our pocket and a well deserved point at that. We certainly missed the best chances of the match to increase our advantage but the Home side responded well and put us under severe pressure at times. All in all an excellent performance and one which should see us in confident mood for the visit of our friends from Haverfordwest this afternoon. It will however be another significant challenge and test our squad resources to the full. Our visitors today had a hugely successful European campaign in the summer but have somewhat stuttered to find their A game at the start of this season. A good win on Tuesday against Penybont will no doubt encourage their confidence and we are expecting a thrillingly competitive encounter at Maes Tegid this afternoon.
The last match before today at Maes Tegid saw us defeat a young but talented Llandudno side in the Welsh Cup and we have been “rewarded” with an away tie in Aberystwyth. Hopefully this will be on Saturday 11th November and I hope as many of you as possible could make the trip to the seaside to support the team.
Please could I also ask if anyone would be interested in our Match Day Sponsorship package. We are a little behind the gain line this season in terms of Match sponsors and any support you may be able to give the Club would be hugely appreciated.
Thanks as always for your attendance this afternoon.
