Football is back!!!

Clear your diaries, free up you weekends and get ready – the JD Welsh Premier League is BACK!

The hard work in training, four warm-up games and all the talking is over, as on Friday night we welcome Carmarthen Town for the much anticipated league kickoff.

There are many new faces in the Town dressing room with Sean Smith, Steve Tames, Andy Burns, Anthony Miley, Henry Jones, Daniel Gosset, Joe Edwards, Charlie Williams and Vaughn Charles all coming into the new look Bala squad which has also seen 9 departures from the squad.

Under new management from the end of last season, the Old Gold have Neil Smothers at the helm and he has brought in new additions such as Greg Walters, Luke Bowen, Tyrell Webbe, Sean Hanbury and Aidan O’Kelly to name a few.

Carmarthen’s last visit to Maes Tegid was last September where the visitors took all three points in a 3-0 win with Bala winning 1-0 away at Richmond Park in October.

Town will be looking to hit the ground running on Friday evening after a successful pre-season campaign.

Get yourselves down to Maes Tegid on Friday night! We want to see as many as you there as possible!

Kickoff – 7.45p.m.
