GUILSFIELD welcome Llandudno to Clos Mytton in the second round of the Nathaniel Cup on Saturday.

The Guils dumped fellow JD Cymru North side Ruthin Town out of the cup last week but Llandudno are expected to provide a sterner test.

The North Wales coast club endured a nightmare season, culminating in relegation from the JD Cymru Premier last season.

The Seasiders have been installed among the favourites to challenge for honours this season under the management of Matthew Jones.

However the visit of the North Wales does not daunt a Guilsfield side which has earned a reputation for its national cup runs.

Director of football Nathan Leonard said: “We will again look to get a good cup run going again, we enjoyed the challenge of the Connahs Quay Nomads last season.

Meanwhile new coach Jason Brindley insisted a team ethic could compete with the resources of other clubs in the most competitive JD Cymru North in history.

“People will be looking at teams in the league with Premier budgets, but we know are strengths and our limits,” said Brindley.

“We will do what we are good at, we will stick together and we will give everything we have in every game.”

Brindley and Leonard are joined by club stalwart Bernie Jones in a new look coaching structure with continuity the key at Clos Mytton.

Striker Adam Davies and midfielder Jolyon Harries are the Guils’ only summer additions

Brindley added: “I think we have added really well to an already very close and established group with the foundations already in place.”
