Latham Park in Newtown will host this season’s Dragon Signs Amateur Trophy final between Newport City and Penrhyncoch.

The final will take place on Saturday April 20th with kick-off at 12:30pm.

It promises to be an enthralling contest in mid Wales, with both clubs enjoying impressive seasons and pushing for promotion to the second tier.

Newport City are currently third in the Ardal South East and have won their last 11 matches in all competitions – including a thrilling 4-3 victory over Cefn Cribwr in the semi-final of the Dragon Signs Amateur Trophy.

Meanwhile, Penrhyncoch are 14 points clear at the top of the Ardal North East and defeated Ardal South East leaders and current holders of this competition Trethomas Bluebirds in the semi-final.

Tickets for the final will be cash only on the gate, costing £5 for adults and £2 for concessions. 


A ticket will also grant spectators access to the Welsh Blood Service League Cup national final between Mold Alexandra and Briton Ferry Llansawel at Latham Park later in the day with a 5.15pm kick off.

The finals will be held just a week after the venue hosts another cup final double header as the Football Association of Wales look to ensure supporters across Wales can attend finals at a geographically central location following the controversy which followed the awarding of the forthcoming JD Welsh Cup final between TNS and Connah’s Quay Nomads to English League club Newport County.

It is hoped the cup finals go off without a hitch after last season’s league cup final when an expected bumper attendance for the final between Barry Town United and Colwyn Bay failed to materialise after the North Wales club ‘s senior players went on holiday with their development side thrashed 6-0 in the final.
