Cardiff Met Preview | Mark Cowan hopes to give loyal supporters something to cheer about.

By Geraint Roberts

After Llandudno’s 2-0 defeat away at Carmarthen Town last weekend, the club now has to prepare for like back in the Second Tier of Welsh football.

“We have to approach the final three games in a professional manner and we are aiming to win all three, we owe the supporters that much.” Mark Cowan

Despite having a couple of good opportunities to get a goal, as well as a dubious second from Carmarthen, Llandudno were succumbed to relegation after a four year stay in the Welsh Premier League.

From the dizzy heights of the Europa League, to a disappointing season this term, Llandudno now have to prepare to return to the top tier as quickly as possible.

Whilst it’s been a disappointing this season, it is now an opportunity to rebuild for the future, and in the mean time enjoying some fierce North Wales derbies against the likes of Bangor, Colwyn Bay and Rhyl amongst many others.

But first, Llandudno have three more Welsh Premier League games to play and the first of which will be a difficult game against Cardiff Met, who are looking to take that last spot in the Europa League play-offs, ahead of Aberystwyth.

Having played the University side three times this season, winning once and losing twice, there is no doubt Llandudno have a tough game on their hands.

Assistant Manager Mark Cowan says the lads have to approach these games in a professional manner.

“We have to approach the final three games in a professional manner and we are aiming to win all three, we owe the supporters that much.”

“I think it’s important we try and get as many points as we can and at least not finish bottom of the division more for a sense of pride than anything else, we hope to give these loyal supporters something to cheer about in our final three games, as they’ve been fantastic this season for us.” Said Mark

The lads were obviously gutted after the Carmarthen result and admits that it’s been difficult to lift spirits ahead of the final three games.

“They’ve not taken it well, no one at the club has really. It’s been a difficult job for Mark Orme, Steve Williams and myself to try and lift the players, I will be honest it’s been difficult as they are gutted.”

Ahead of next season, Mark Cowan admits that there is now an opportunity for the academy lads to stake a claim as to why they should be in the first team squad next year.

“I think the plan for next season needs to begin immediately, and I’m sure the young lads will no doubt play a part in these plans as they have done this season.”

“One thing at least to be proud of is the progression of the likes of Telor Williams, Aron Hughes and Dafydd Thomas from the club’s academy.”

“I saw it at Airbus when I was coaching the U19s there last season, when they faced their first season in the 2nd tier and 16 players from the academy features in the first team, so I have no doubt it can be the same here at Llandudno.” Said Mark.

TEAM NEWS |

Zyaac Edwards is still suffering with his injury and is unlikely to feature in the last three games of the season. Toby Jones has been recovering extremely well since his ankle injury against Cefn Druids a few weeks back and could feature before the end of the season.

Danny Hughes will hopefully shake off an ankle injury, whilst Tom Owens has left the club.

Ben Clark has been recalled from his loan by TNS, as he hopes to feature in their title charge.

The club would like to thank Ben for his efforts and wish him the best of luck for the future

Llandudno face Cardiff Met at 2:30pm at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, the penultimate home game before life in the second tier, come down and support the lads if you can as we try and end our stay in the Welsh Premier League in the best possible fashion.
