NEWTOWN welcome JD Cymru South side Ammanford to Latham Park in the second round of the Nathaniel Cup on Saturday.

The South Wales side will include former Swansea City and Wrexham star Lee Trundle in their side while also signing former Swan favourite Andy Robinson this week.

Robins manager Chris Hughes confirmed his squad would not be up to full strength but expected whatever side he selected to underline their JD Cymru Premier credentials.

“We will be paying Ammanford every respect.” said Hughes. “We have watched them and know a bit about them so it should be a good game.

“We want a good run in the Nathaniel Cup this season and as a the top flight club playing at home we go into the game as favourites.

Defender Lewis Short is unavailable due to work commitments.

“Hopefully Lewis will be available later in the season but until then we have options and will look at a few against Ammanford this weekend,” said Hughes.
