Match Preview: Bala Town vs Penybont



The 2021/22 season concludes on Saturday at Maes Tegid as the Lakesiders look to end on a high having already qualified for Europe earlier this week.


We face a Penybont side which has struggled for form as of late but had previously been pushing for a European place all season. The Bont can still claim a place in Europe however through the Welsh Cup having beaten the Lakesiders on penalties in the semi-finals to claim their place in the final against TNS.

One To Watch

Lewis Harling - With several key players missing, Penybont will be calling on Lewis Harling to lead an expected youthful away side from the midfield at Maes Tegid. The Bont started their most recent class against Flint Town with six teenagers in the starting eleven as they opted to give youth a chance with little to play for in the remaining matches. Harling is one of few senior players expected to start against the Lakesiders and pressure will be on his shoulders to help guide the youngsters to a surprise result in North Wales.


Previous Meetings

Our previous encounter with Penybont was an emphatic one for the Lakesiders. We came and conquered the SDM Glass Stadium as we ran out 5-0 winners in what was a statement victory. Will Evans was the star of the show as he scored a hat-trick - the first of his senior career - to guide us to a priceless three points. Chris Venables and Dean Ebbe were also on the scoresheet to add to a successful day at the office in South Wales.
