Midweek action for the Lakesiders.

The Lakesiders play their first of five prestigious home friendlies at Maes Tegid on Wednesday evening by welcoming National League North outfit Souhtport.

The Port as they are known finished 14th in the table last season and are currently undergoing a huge refurbishment at Haig Avenue. Managed by Liam Watson, they have one new addition which is Kieran Glynn who has joined them on loan from Salford City.

Our opponents already have two games under their belts after a 3-0 win against Fleetwood Town U23’s and 2-0 win over Widnes.

Meanwhile it was 4-2 away win for the Lakesiders on Saturday away at local side Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant with Chris Venables notching a brace and a goal apiece by a Trialist and Henry Jones.

With seven trialists featured in Colin Caton’s line-ups, all players were given a runout with everyone coming through the game unscathed. Wednesday will be a tougher test for the Lakesiders who will be looking to build on Saturday’s result and also put the trialists through their paces.

A reminder to Town supporters that season ticket forms will be available for the forthcoming season.
