On Saturday we welcome Aberystwyth Town for our first match in Phase 2 of the league.
We have yet to beat Aber this season, with the Seasiders winning 2-1 in our first encounter at Park Avenue, and the two sides deadlocked at 1-1 in the return at the Essity in January, with Matthew Turner having an excellent game on his debut in goal for the visitors.
Aber are just one place below us in the table, sitting in 10th position, with just two points separating the teams, so they know a win will see them leapfrog above us. Manager Anthony Williams has brought in 5 players during the transfer window in an effort to preserve Aber’s status as one of only two ever present sides in the top tier since the formation of the League of Wales. As well as Turner, who joined on loan from Cardiff, he has recruited another couple of loan signings from TNS – Jake Canavan and Billy Kirkman. He has also brought in Liam Walsh from Barry Town United, and of course ex-Flint player Mark Cadwallader, who left the Silkmen in January.
Meanwhile, our new signing, who is now wearing Caddy’s old shirt number, Zach Clarke will be looking to continue where he left off, after smashing in a hat-trick on his debut against Pontypridd. Two other new signings, Calum Huxley and Soulayman El Amri are also likely to be included in Lee Fowler’s matchday squad. Jordan Carroll will be serving a one match suspension and so will be unavailable for the Silkmen.
Before tomorrow’s game the players will be demonstrating their continued support for the Show Racism the Red Card campaign, something the club wholeheartedly supports.
Kick off is 2-30pm. Cost of Admission is £8 Adults, £5 Seniors, £2 Under 16, with free admission for Juniors (Under 11). Tickets can be purchased in advance from the website, or payment can be made by cash or card at the turnstile on the day.
