Crucial game next for Llandudno as we travel to Llanelli

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno travel to fellow strugglers Llanelli Town next in the Welsh Premier League as we look to move off the bottom of the table.

“We always had togetherness, and now we also have competition for places, which should give us more of a chance.” Iwan Williams

The two hard fought points against Caernarfon have given Iwan and his players a lot of belief that they can get out of this predicament, and three points would do wonders on Saturday.

Llanelli managed to pick up a point against Carmarthen at home on Boxing Day, before losing the reverse fixture on New Year’s Day.

A few of our new signings are available to play tomorrow after we confirmed the signings of Ryan Wade, Zebb Edwards, Tom Owens, Les Davies and Jay Gibbs this week.

Llanelli have too been busy this week, including confirming the high profile signing of former Swansea City player and legend Leon Britton.

The manager has given his thoughts ahead of the tie on Saturday, adding how he is proud of the lads after the festive period.

“I’m really happy with the lads, they gave me everything and more. I was worried at half time on New Years Day as you could see how tied they were, so to go a goal down and come back to quickly and arguably should have won it was a credit to the players.”

“We can definitely take spirit from that performance now and hopefully kick on.” Said Iwan.

Iwan also mentioned what he hopes his new signings can do to help the side kicking on for the next two games and for phase two.

“We have added experience with players who know the club. We needed to replace Leo’s quality and we did that with Jay (Gibbs). Mike Pearson is injured so Zebb was brought in to boost the defence and morale with his personality.” Said Iwan.

“Tom Owens is someone whom I really like as he has poise, guile and discipline. Les Davies is a handful for anyone and Keyo (Ryan Wade) is a match winner so we’ve added a bit of everything!”

“We needed numbers, power, and quality and we managed to get them through the door.”

Llanelli sit a point ahead of us in the table, meaning a win would take us above them and hopefully get us closer to safety, but Iwan knows how much of a challenge it will be.

“Going to Llanelli tomorrow is a challenge in itself whether we were playing against one Leon Britton or eleven Leon Brittons! There is a good feeling amongst us and the group chat has been lively since the new additions have been added.”

“We always had togetherness, and now we also have competition for places, which should give us more of a chance.”

The game kicks off on Saturday afternoon at 14:30, we wish the lads all the best ahead of the game.
