GUILSFIELD welcome Holyhead Hotspur to Clos Mytton in the first round of the Huws Gray Cup on Saturday (2.30).

Manager Nathan Leonard has targeted silverware this season and has backed his side to overcome the islanders in the twice postponed first round tie.

“If we apply ourselves like last weekend then we will make it very hard for Holyhead,” said Leonard. “We want silverware this season and this is a huge game for us.”

The Guils go into the game on the back of the heated 2-2 draw at home to Flint Town United which was marred by Asa Hamilton’s dismissal and a visiting supporter being ejected from the ground.

Leonard said: “Asa was worked up after being targeted by a racist slur. I have spoken to him and he knows he needs to channel that aggression into winning games and ignore opposition winding him up. The real trouble started when one of their substitutes came on the pitch and started shoving Asa after the initial incident.”

Leonard insisted the club would not dwell on the unfortunate incident as the club move forward with their campaign and push for a high league finish and silverware.

However the club is considering its options in regards to registering a complaint to the league over the behaviour of Flint’s travelling support and a member of their management.

Club spokesman Martin Roberts said: “A Flint supporter remonstrated so much after the dismissal of Asa Hamilton that he had to be escorted from the ground.

“County Times photographer Phil Blagg was also verbally abused by a member of the Flint management team amongst the mayhem.”

The Guils hope on-loan goalkeeper Andy Wycherley will be back to full fitness after playing last week despite suffering from flu while Adam Jenkins will press for a starting berth.
