SEAGULLS manager Steve Evans says he hopes his side can go on to create more great memories as they bid to reach the last 32 of the JD Welsh Cup away to free-scoring Ardal North East League side Bow Street in a second round tie on Saturday (October 8).
Although Bow Street suffered their first league defeat of the season 2-1 at Welshpool Town a couple of weeks ago, they bounced back with a 9-0 demolition of Knighton Town in the FAW Amateur Trophy last weekend with top scorer Ifan Burrell netting four of the goals.
That brought Bow Street’s goals tally this season to an impressive 38 in just 10 league and cup games. Fourteen of those goals have come in this season’s Welsh Cup run, beating Llansantffraid Village 6-0, Dolgellau 2-1 and Bangor 1876 6-5.
The Seagulls go into the tie unbeaten in 10 games and will again have a big away following to cheer them on.
The manager, who has Sam Downey available again after illness, says he is expecting a tough game but adds: “We are excited to once again be starting our challenge for the Welsh Cup.
“We fell just short last season, losing narrowly to TNS in the semi-final, but we created some great memories for everyone at the club in our cup run and we hope to do that again.
“I went to watch Bow Street last week and they are a well organised team who have quality and pace in their side, so we have to be on our game.
“I want to wish all Seagulls fans a safe trip and we look forward to putting on a performance for them. See you all Saturday!”
For those fans making the trip the nearest pub to the ground is the Rhydypennau Inn, which serves food and has live sport on the TV (see their facebook page at The Rhydypennau Inn or twitter @RhydypennauInn).
