LLANRHAEADR welcome Rhyl to Tanllan on Saturday.

The villagers head into the game sitting in fourth spot in the JD Cymru North table and with confidence soaring.

However the Tanat Valley side head into the weekend without three key players with Iwan Matthews, Matty Jones and Matty Williams all missing while Sam Thomas returns from suspension.

The club is still waiting to receive international clearance for new signing Gary Meredith.

Club spokesman Marc Griffiths said: “We are looking forward to welcoming one of the best supported clubs in Wales.

“When the fixtures are realised this is the one that myself and all the lads lookout for.

“We relish playing against these big clubs and will do our best to make it a difficult afternoon for them.”

The club laid to rest lifelong clubman Bob Williams in midweek, an instrumental figure in the club’s rise through the Welsh pyramid.

Meanwhile Penrhyncoch bid to bring Guilsfield back to earth at Cae Baker.

The Guils ran riot in a 6-1 thrashing of Llanfair United last week and Penrhyn manager Gari Lewis expected a tough afternoon.

“Guilsfield are always a tough challenge and play a nice style of football for which they deserve credit for,” said Lewis.

“We are going nicely as well but unfortunately we have a few injuries this weekend but that gives others a chance to impress so we need to create a performance and positive result again.”

Penrhyn are without Antonio Corbisiero, Owain James, Jack Rimmer and Guto Huws.

Guilsfield make the trip with confidence high following last week’s derby victory and expect to travel west with an unchanged squad, including club top scorer Adam Davies.
