COLWYN BAY chairman Neil Coverley is looking forward to what will be a fantastic occasionin Sunday’s JD Welsh Cup semi-final against The New Saints at Rhyl’s Belle Vue.

The winners will face Penybont in the final after they beat Bala Town on penalties in the other semi-final on Friday evening in Aberystwyth.

Sunday’s semi-final will be Bay’s fourth appearance in the competition’s last four and the opponents will be the club who last weekend won the Cymru Premier title.

“We’re certainly not underestimating the monumental task we’ve got ahead of us though, that’s for sure,” the Bay chairman told the Daily Post.

“They’re the new champions and congratulations to them, fully deserved- 20 odd points clear with a month or two of the season to go is quite outstanding.

“All the volunteers, all the loyal supporters who’ve stuck with us and all the new supporters that we’ve found along the way over the past few years, I think it’s something we all deserve.”

There will be a  limited amount of pay on the gate walk ins on Sunday and fans intending to pay on the day are advised to arrive early.

A minute’s applause will be held before kick-off to remember Colwyn Bay Under-16 academy goalkeeper Elgan Jones, who passed away earlier this week.
