We have unexpected midweek action this week!

After the unplanned postponement on Saturday due to Penybont’s JD Welsh Cup involvement, we have Tuesday night football ahead of us.

Penybont make the long midweek trip up to Maes Tegid after breezing past Porthmadog 6-1 on Saturday afternoon in the replayed Welsh Cup tie.

After being knocked out of the Welsh Cup last time out v Flint Town United, Bala will be looking to bounce back on Tuesday evening and after a superb run of league form, will be eager to get a points return ahead of the crucial Christmas period.

Back in September a fantastic 6-1 at the KYMCO Stadium saw the Lakesiders win when the Clubs last met.

Our visitors will be without goalkeeper Rhys Wilson who is out due to injury.

Kieran Smith returns for the Lakesiders after missing last week’s Cup tie. There are no injury worries for Town.

Kickoff – 7.45p.m.

Our new range of hats will be on sale on Tuesday evening – they are perfect stocking fillers so get yours before Christmas!

Match sponsors on Tuesday evening are Plas yn Dre, Bala. The family run restaurant since 1990 has gone through quite a transformation in 2017 with a complete re-vamp and the addition of 9 guest bedrooms. From family functions to your Sunday roast, the food is all prepared with fresh local produce and is based in the heart of Bala’s high street. A five star rated hotel they also have a Gold Award to their name.
