Steelmen to Host Lakesiders in Play-Off Final

Port Talbot a'r Bala'n Cyrraedd y Ffeinal

BANGOR CITY 2 BALA TOWN 4

Bala Town claimed their place in the Europa League Play-Off Final for the second successive year following their impressive victory at the Book People Stadium.
The Lakesiders secured their 12th victory on the bounce – with the damage done in the opening period. Stuart Jones started the scoring after 29 minutes and less than 5 minutes later Mark Jones had doubled the advantage.
A Lee Idzi mistake just before the break gifted Ian Sheridan’s first goal of the game and 2 minutes after the restart Sheridan headed Bala’s fourth of the afternoon.
Chris Jones did respond for Bangor 7 minutes later and Peter Hoy scored another for the home side with 10 minutes left of play – but it was too little too late to spoil Bala Town’s day.

PORT TALBOT TOWN 1 CARMARTHEN TOWN 0

The Europa League Play-Off Final will be held at the GenQuip Stadium on Saturday (3pm) following Bala’s win at Nantporth and the Steelmen’s victory at the GenQuip.
This hard fought and competitive encounter was settled by David Brooks’ solitary strike after 71 minutes of play. The Port Talbot captain took full advantage of Lewis Harling’s intelligent run and pass to register his 16th goal of the season – a goal which puts Port Talbot within touching distance of their first European encounter since 2010.


Hawliodd Y Bala eu lle yn Rownd Derfynol Gemau Ail Gyfle Cynghrair Europa am yr ail dymor o’r bron wedi eu buddugoliaeth swmpus yn Stadiwm y Book People. Rhoddodd goliau hanner cyntaf Stu Jones, Mark Jones ac Ian Sheridan fantais glir i’r ymwelwyr a phan rwydodd Sheridan ei ai, ddau funud wedi troi – roedd y fuddugoliaeth yn ddiogel i dîm Colin Caton. Sgoriodd Chris Jones a Peter Hoy goliau cysur i Fangor ond diwrnod Y Bala oedd hwn wrth iddyn nhw gymryd cam sylweddol at gyrraedd Ewrop am y tro cyntaf yn eu hanes.
O ganlyniad i lwyddiant Y Bala yn Nantporth a buddugoliaeth fain Port Talbot yn erbyn Caerfyrddin – bydd Rownd Derfynol y Gemau Ail Gyfle yn cael ei chwarae yn Stadiwn GenQuip y Sadwrn nesaf (3pm).
Mewn gêm gorfforol a chystadleuol – gôl y capten David Brooks wedi 71 munud oedd y gwahaniaeth yn y pendraw. Manteisiodd Brooks ar rediad a phas ddeallus Lewis Harling i sgorio ei 16eg o’r tymor – heb os ei gôl bwysicaf o’r tymor – sy’n cymryd Gw?r y Dur gam yn nes at Ewrop am y tro cyntaf ers 2010.
