Nathaniel Cup Final



CARDIFF Met FC will be hoping second time lucky when they take on Cambrian & Clydach Vale Boys and Girls Club in the Nathaniel MG Cup Final tomorrow (January 19, 7.30pm).

Last year, Cardiff Met FC lost to The New Saints (TNS) who won the competition for the fourth year in a row.

Cardiff Met go into the final at Jenner Park, Barry, having won their last their three Welsh Premiership matches.

Their opponents Cambrian & Clydach Vale will be aiming to become the first team from outside the Welsh Premier League to win the cup.

Cardiff Met director of football Christian Edwards said: "We've had a good run of games and are feeling good heading into Saturday's match.

"Cambrian & Clydach are on top form, and this is going to be a really tough game for everyone. People have talked about them being underdogs but based on their performance in the Cup so far, I wouldn't say that at all.

"Having played in a final here before, we know what to expect and we're preparing ourselves accordingly.

"Hopefully there will be a good crowd at Jenner Park and plenty of Cardiff Met fans there supporting us on the day."

Over 300 Cardiff Met students, staff and supporters are planning to attend the game. Cardiff Met will also be taking their Under 9s, 10s, 11s and 12s to compete in a tournament in Barry beforehand.
