Conwy Borough face their last home game of the season at Y Morfa on Saturday against title challengers Caernarfon Town (KO 2.30pm)


The Canaries lie second in the Huws Gray Alliance table, 10 point behind leaders Llandudno but with a game in hand.

The Tangerines have won the last three games at home and defeated the Canaries 2-1 at The Oval back in November and are in a position to give a helping hand to their coast rivals title ambitions. However, Conwy Borough manager Aden Shannon knows the task that his side face if they are to end the home campaign on a winning note: “We are really looking forward to Saturday as its a massive game for both teams. Last time around at their place it was a very entertaining game and some good football was played. We stuck to our game plan well that day, but we are going to have to be at our best again if we are to pick up three points. I honestly think Caernarfon are the best footballing team in our league with some very decent players”

Shannon has put his faith in youth and has selected three teenagers in each of the last two starting line-ups with Luke Douglas, Hadjuri Fisnik, Jack Roberts and keeper Christian Wright all making starts. “They have all done really well and will get better the more they play. Age isn’t a concern to me and to win this league you need hungry players with the desire to do well."

The Conwy rearguard will be aiming to block out Canaries forwards Jamie McDaid and Darren Thomas who have over 31 league goals between them this season with their team having scored over 70 goals.

Shannon reports no new injuries worries with only skipper Gareth Sudlow and long term absentee Danny Desormeaux unavailable. There is a return from injury for midfielder Phil Clarke and striker Leon Williams.

Following the game the end of season awards presentation will be held followed by a live band “June Bug”. All are welcome.

Prior to the first team game the clubs Under 8s are in action against Caernarfon U8s and live BT Sport football will be shown in the clubhouse which opens at 12 noon.
