JD Welsh Cup Semi-Final Details Announced

The details of this season's JD Welsh Cup Semi-Finals have been announced  by the Football Association of Wales. 

Connah’s Quay Nomads and Bangor City will meet at the Corbett Sports Stadium in Rhyl on Saturday 7 April. Kick-off will be at 19:35, and the game will be televised live by broadcast partners S4C.

The sides, who met in the 1998 Final, have already clashed in cup action this season, Nomads knocking Bangor out of the Nathaniel MG Cup 2-0 thanks to two late goals from Michael Wilde and Callum Morris.

It will be the first time the sides have met in the JD Welsh Cup since Bangor won 2-0 on Deeside in the Fourth Round back in 2013.

You have to go further back for the last time that Newtown and Aberystwyth met in the Cup, the Seasiders edging a Third Round Replay 1-0 back in 1995/96.

The two will meet this year at Bala Town’s Maes Tegid on Sunday 8 April, in a Midday kick-off which will be streamed live on the Sgorio Facebook page, and on the S4C website.

The mid-Wales derby clash is sure to be highly competitive, as both teams chase a place in Welsh football’s showpiece game for the second time in recent years, Newtown having made the final in 2015, and Aberystwyth having done so the year before.

It is the first time that a Welsh Cup semi-final will have been held in Bala, who won the competition for the first time in their history last season with a 2-1 victory over The New Saints.
