COLWYN BAY face a tough test away to Cymru Premier side Bala Town in their latest pre-season game on Saturday.
Bala, managed by former Seagulls manager and player Colin Caton, are preparing for their Europa Conference League tie against Northern Ireland’s Larne.
“Colin’s a cult hero at Colwyn Bay and he’s a personal friend of mine,” said Bay boss Craig Hogg.
“We’re doing this as a favour to them as they prepare for Europe and it will be a really hard game and we know what to expect.
“We will have to be a little bit better than we were against Denbigh because we’ll be playing against really top opposition from our country.
“It’s going to be difficult, but we’ll go there and try and perform as best we can.”
Lassana Mendes, Anthony Stephens and new signing Bradley Bauress are the former Bay players in Bala’s ranks, while former Wales international David Edwards, who recently joined the Lakesiders, scored twice on his debut in last Saturday’s 4-0 win at Airbus UK Broughton.
