FC Nomads were looking to add to their recent good form my scalping Pwellhi in the Welsh Cup First Round. This was Nomads first ever appearance, at this stage and were feeling confident of progressing again. 

The feeling and atmosphere around the club in recent weeks has been brilliant.

The pitch had been cut and marked earlier that day so everything was set for this battle for a place in the next round.

The eagerly awaited tie was being watched by a bumper crowd, ready to cheer the Nomads on.

Nomads were going into the game having beaten Garden Village in the league cup first round the previous week.

Nomads had a few late pull out’s from the squad including Mike Hopkinson (injury) and Ryan McCleary (arrested), but other than that Nomads were at full strength.
