Match Preview: Bala Town vs Penybont

Cymru Premier action returns to Maes Tegid!


The Lakesiders kick off their league campaign with a home match against Penybont today, the same way we ended our home league campaign last season, where a late Nathan Peate header stole all three points in added time.


It's been a busy period on and off the pitch for both clubs preparing for the 21/22 Cymru Premier season, with different pre-season schedules as the Lakesiders competed in European competition.

Danger Men


Mael Davies: Winner of Young Player Of The Season; Mael Davies will be no doubt one of Penybont’s danger men in today’s game. The Midfielder netted five times and assisted his team mates on three occasions last season. Davies is one not to shy away from shooting from distance, with three of his five goals coming from outside the area! The 22 year also won Goal Of The Month for April this year, with a well placed shot from outside the area against Haverfordwest County, with the move starting with Davies in his own half and dancing past an opponent before putting the ball out wide, before receiving the ball around 25 yards out and hitting a pin point ball into the bottom left hand corner. He will definitely be one to watch today!


Kane Owen: The Captain Kane Owen was named in the Cymru Premier Team of The Season last time round, and rightly so. His performances from left back were tremendous last season, scoring five goals and assisting his team mates six times. Owen will be a huge threat down the left hand side, putting crosses into the box and will want to hit the ground running for his side’s first league game this season.
