It's Good Friday Football at Maes Tegid this afternoon, as the Lakesiders welcome Newtown in the penultimate home game of the Cymru Premier season! The Town are still looking for their first victory in the Championship Conference this season and will look to claw back a chance of qualifying for Europe through the league route.
Both sides come into today's match on the back of defeats at home, as the Town fell to a 2-1 defeat against Connah's Quay Nomads last Friday, while the Robins were dismantled by The New Saints in a 5-0 defeat, whilst also going down to 9 men by the full-time whistle. The Match Bala Town vs Newtown Cymru Premier Phase Two Maes Tegid, Castle St, LL23 7UY Friday 7th of April, 2:30pm kick-off Insight into our opponents Form: (H) The New Saints 0-5 - Cymru Premier Championship Conference

Danger Man Aaron Williams - The 29 year old leads the goal scoring charts for the Robins, with 14 goals in 27 league appearances, as he also holds on to joint 2nd along with Ryan Brobbel in the league's top goalscoring chart. Williams’ last goal came in the reverse fixture in the Cymru Premier Championship Conference just over a month ago, as Williams netted the first goal for Newtown in a 3-2 win for the Robins over the Lakesiders, after the Town capitulated in the last three minutes of the match. Once again, should Williams feature this afternoon, there’s no doubt he will be a big threat. Previous Meetings The Lakesiders have been rather comfortable in fixtures against the Robins, however the last meeting was difficult to take, as a 10 man Newtown side stole all three points with two late goals at Latham Park in a 3-2 victory. Prior to that defeat, the Town had been on a five game win streak over today's opponents and had also kept five clean sheets in those five victories, and had been without defeat in our last 11 meetings.
