LLANRHAEADR welcome Ardal West League title chasers Flint Mountain to Tanllan on Saturday.

The villagers go into the Ardal North League Cup semi-final as massive underdogs following a poor league campaign with the club still deep in the Ardal North East League relegation zone.

In contrast the visitors are favourites to win the Ardal North West League title and promotion to JD Cymru North.


Indeed the Tanat Valley club finds itself in the position of being just one win away from a major cup final while also facing the very real and growing prospect of dropping into the Central Wales League next season.

Manager Michael Barton was looking forward to the game, saying: “Obviously we are massive underdogs in this game. Flint Mountain flying high in there league with players who should be playing in a higher standard. There is a lot of experience in their side.

“But we will be up for it. We will be organised and very disciplined in our game plan."

Barton insisted home advantage at Tanllan, nicknamed the Theatre of Trees, would hold the villagers in good stead.

“The pitch will be a great leveller. Hopefully we can use that to our advantage. We have players who can hurt any team at this level but we have to turn up and be on it," he said.
