SILVERWARE is in Bala Town's sights this weekend.

Kicking off what will be a crucial stage of the season for the Lakesiders, they will tackle fellow top-three Cymru Premier League rivals Connah's Quay Nomads in the final of the Nathaniel MG Cup.

The showpiece occasion will take place at The Rock, the home of Cefn Druids FC, on Saturday, kicking-off at 12.45pm.

Cefn Druids chairman Des Williams said: "Being asked by the FAW to hold the Nathaniel MG Cup final was a surprise but one that was welcomed.

"This is what The Rock Stadium was made for and I’m sure there’s more to come soon."

Nomads are the current cup holders, having beaten Penybont on penalties in last season's final.

Bala have never won the competition, although they got to the final in 2015, losing out 3-0 to The New Saints on that occasion.

That was the Lakesiders' second successive final, as they were beaten on penalties by Carmarthen Town 12 months earlier.

Bala have only conceded two goals on their way through to the final.

David Edwards netted twice as Bala opened their run with a 6-1 success versus Chirk AAA, while Luke Wall grabbed a brace when Colin Caton's side triumphed 4-1 at Caernarfon Town in the next round.

In the last-eight, Antony Kay (2), Lassana Mendes and Nathan Peate saw Bala through to a 4-0 outcome versus Gresford Athletic and in the semi-finals, Town got the better of Cardiff Met 2-0.

Chris Venables and David Edwards sealed the deal.

Bala will travel to unbeaten leaders The New Saints for a rearranged league clash next Tuesday, January 31.
