THE Football Association of Wales (FAW) hopes a bumper gate will mark the 131st JD Welsh Cup final in Newtown on Sunday.

Connahs Quay Nomads take on Aberystwyth Town with the latter needing to win to secure a place in the Europa League next season.

While the match, televised live on S4C, kicks off at 2.45pm the FAW hopes to boost the crowd with a host of pre-match entertainment.

From 11am-1pm academy matches will entertain the crowd before musical entertainment on the main stage from 1.30-2.15pm.

From 2.45pm to 2.40pm all eyes turn to sky as the RAF Falcons deliver the match ball via a parachute display before the national anthems and kick-off.
