5 exciting football matches are taking place in North Wales this weekend


Another exciting Welsh football weekend is just around the corner and there are plenty of tasty matches for football fans across North Wales.

The action kicks off tonight (Friday) with several big matches taking place in the first two levels of the Welsh game tonight before another huge day of action across all five levels tomorrow. Here we take a look at five big games taking place this weekend.

Bala Town vs Flint Town United – Cymru Premier, Friday 19:45 KO

Colin Caton, director of the city of Bala

Bala Town has made six league games without a win for the first time since January 2019, and the Lakesiders are now at risk of falling in the bottom half of the table.

While Bala didn’t win in six, Flint Town United didn’t lose in six, and Neil Gibson’s gang are proving they are real contenders for at least one European spot this season.

Colin Caton’s men have won their last four games against Flint Town United but needed a 91st-minute strike from David Edwards to score the points in the second leg last month (Flint 1-2 Bala).

Airbus UK Broughton vs Guilsfield – Cymru North, Friday 7:30 p.m. KO

Airbus UK Broughton has home advantage in top-of-the-table clash

A fascinating contest takes place tonight at the airfield as second-placed Guilsfield takes on Airbus in a game that could prove vital in Cymru North’s title race.

Airbus took an impressive 2-0 victory at Llandudno last time around as Guilsfield hammered Prestatyn Town 6-1.

With Airbus leading the Powys team by four points, although Guilsfield has one game less, it promises to be an entertaining affair and both sides won’t want to give an inch in such an important clash.

Porthmadog vs Llanuwchllyn – Ardal North West, Saturday 2:30 p.m. KO

There appears to be a four-way title race atop the third tier Ardal North West league this season with Porthmadog currently in the lead and Denbigh Town, Mold Alex and Llanuwchllyn forming the chase pack.

Llanuwchllyn can blow up the title race with a victory at Y Traeth and make his own challenge for the title without any harm in the process. A victory for Port, however, would be a major setback for visitors. With Denbigh in action at home against Llandudno Albion and Mold set to score three points at home against St Asaph, it could be a very interesting weekend in store in the third tier.

Bodedern Athletic vs Bangor 1876 – Premier of the West Coast of North Wales, Saturday 2pm KO

Something must give way to Cae Ty Cristion this Saturday as the league’s two remaining unbeaten teams face off. The 1876 preseason title favorites won 11 games and shot one of their 12 games while Bodedern won all of their 10 opening games.

A large crowd is expected to be at the game with a few hundred people making the 20-mile journey from Bangor.

Both teams will be aiming for all three points and while there is still plenty of football to play this season, neither side will want to concede any ground in the race for promotion to the third tier.

Chirk Town vs Cefn Mawr Rangers – North East Wales Premier Division, Saturday 13:30 KO

Chirk Town FC

At the top of the table, Chirk Town welcomes local rivals Cefn Mawr Rangers for a tasty North East Wales Premier League clash this Saturday and both sides will look to claim bragging rights.

Chirk has been in excellent form this season and finds himself seven points clear at the top of the table while Cefn is also well placed and could cause an upheaval in this local clash.

Highlights from Bala against Flint Town United and all Cymru Premier games will air on S4C’s Sgorio program at 10 p.m. Monday night.
