Caersws start home run with Flint challenge


Gavin Grosvenor

CAERSWS manager Graham Evans has urged his players to end the season on a high with the visit of Flint Town United on Saturday (2.30) their next challenge.

Meanwhile Evans targeted Central Wales Cup success with a quarter-final at home to local rivals Llanidloes Town on Tuesday (7.30) representing a final chance for silverware.

Evans said: “We need to take our away form in to our final four home league games, starting with Flint on Saturday.

“The lads should be full of confidence after the Porthmadog win so am expecting a big performance.”

The Bluebirds are beset by injuries and suspension with Jolyon Harries, Mark Griffiths, Scott Williams, Lance Jones, Jack Bermingham and Callum Hawthorne sidelined while Paul Grant and Will Thomas are suspended.

However captain Jack Hughes should return while Evans heaped praise on defenders Jake Parr and Graham Jones upon their return from an injury lay-offs.

Guilsfield welcome bottom of the table Conwy Borough to Clos Mytton with manager Danny Barton conceding a top four finish now out of reach after last week’s defeat at Holywell Town.

“It all depends on our next few results but I think it may be beyond us now,” said Barton. “Though we have plenty to play for and any finish lower than sixth will represent a failure in my opinion.”

The Guils continue to sweat on the fitness of defender Robbie James and striker Louis Irvine but hope to welcome front runner Aeron Edwards back to the fold following a long lay-off.

A Guils victory would do Mid Wales rivals Llanfair United a huge favour with Rhys Stephens’ side desperate for points to pull away from the relegation zone.

United travel to inform Ruthin Town on Saturday knowing victory would be priceless in their battle against the drop with the club facing eight cup finals between now and the end of April.

Penrhyncoch travel to Denbigh Town (tonight) with manager Gari Lewis backing his side to take another major step toward safety after a fine start to March.

“Denbigh are flying but we are on a run too and we are looking to get something from the game,” said Lewis who welcomes back Owain James from suspenion..
