This weekend sports action involving Deeside teams.

First up, Airbus UK entertain Bernard McNallys Newtown AFC kick off  2.30pm at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium. 



The Wingmakers have already set a New record with 3 wins from 3 for the very first time at the start of a WPL season. will be at the game along with Rory Sheehan the match day reporter, hopefully bringing you a few “sideways” views of the match. 


The Nomads face Prestatyn Town for the second time in five days in the S4C Sgorio live game.

The two teams met on Tuesday night in theWord Cup which saw The Nomads advance to the next round after a 119th minute strike from Ryan Edwards prevented the almost inevitable penalty shootout scenario.  

The two teams will no doubt have a different look to them in the League as a number of youngsters were blooded for both teams with The Nomads start with three academy graduates, followed by three development squad substitutes.  

Young striker Lee Jones was unfortunate to see a straight red however and will be unavailable for today’s game.

The last time The Nomads visited Bastion Gardens, they failed to make the most of a strong start eventually losing out 4-1 on a bitter night last September as sheet rain fell on The Gardens.


The Deeside Dragons season gets underway later tonight with trip to Hull



The Dragons then face the newly formed Widnes Wild on Sunday night at the Dragons den.The Wild are our closest rivals, so the game is a must win, in what will be the first ever encounter between these two teams.

To add to what we’re sure will be a local rivalry, Wild also have a couple of ex Dragons in their line up in Calum Ruddick and Ben Simister who will be desperate got go back to Widnes with the Win!

Face Off- 6.40pm.
