Following the cancellation of last week’s game, we finally get to play our first competitive game on our new 3G surface this weekend when we welcome Bala Town to the Essity Stadium.
Since returning to the Cymru Premier, we have faced Bala six times in the league, and have yet to register a single point against them. So a tough challenge is ahead for Flint, something manager Lee Fowler acknowledged earlier in the week, but one which his team will not shirk away from.
He told us, “We will be going into the game fully focussing on 3 points, on the front foot, and with no fear. I expect it to be a good game for the fans”
Flint’s ex-Bala player Anthony Stephens will miss out on the opportunity of playing against his former club, as he is suspended. Also, Okera Simmonds is unlikely to feature, as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury.
Bala’s regular skipper, Chris Venables, also misses out due to suspension. Following a stuttering opening to their campaign, there were signs in their last game that the Lakesiders are now finding their stride, having overcome the early dismissal of Venables to win 4-1 away at Aberystwyth in a commanding performance.
Kick off tomorrow is 2-30pm, and prices are £8 for Adults, £5 for Seniors and £2 for Under 16 (Under 11’s free).
You can purchase your tickets online in advance, under the match fixture information on the website homepage.
Our new Fanzone and Catering facility for all your pre-match refreshments, including a beer, is now open, so make sure you get there early to try what’s on offer.
