Colin Caton’s team will face The New Saints in the Welsh Cup final on the 30th of April after beating Caernarfon Town 1-3 in the semi-final of the competition.

Earlier today (1st of April) The New Saints beat gap Connah’s Quay 0-3 at Bangor’s Nantporth Stadium with goals from Adrian Cieslewicz, Aeron Edwards and Jamie Mullen.

This will be TNS’ fourth Welsh Cup final in a row, with the Oswestry based club winning the competition for the last three seasons in a row.

The Welsh Premier League champions are also looking to complete their third domestic treble in a row.

Bala secured their place in the Welsh Cup final thanks to goals from Kieran Smith and a brace from Lee Hunt, this after falling behind 1-0 after Stuart J. Jones scored an own goal.

This will be the first time Bala Town will compete in the Welsh Cup final – but they will face a stern test against a team they have never beaten in any competition!

The Welsh Cup final between Bala Town and The New Saints will be held at the Bangor University Stadium on the 30th of April.
