The New Saints Under 19’s beat Flint Town by two goals to nil thanks to reach the NEWFA Cup Final.
The goals came courtesy of Ryan Kershaw and Jordan Wells during the second half.
Steve Evans’ side were brilliant throughout the contest and could have taken the lead during the first half. However, Flint looked dangerous with the long ball over the top.
The Saints started the better in the second half and when Taylor James found Kershaw on the edge of the box, the young midfielder expertly chipped the oncoming Flint ‘keeper to break the deadlock.
Ten minutes later and it was two nil. Wells pounced on a loose ball after Flint had failed to clear a TNS corner.
The TNS Under 19’s will now face Airbus UK in the Final on Friday the 23rd of May.
Evans was delighted with the win and the former Wrexham defender said, ‘I thought we were brilliant tonight. Defensively we were so solid which gave us the platform to go and score the two goals. I am so pleased for my players to get to another final which they thoroughly deserve through all their hard work throughout the season.’
The team consisted of Stewart Evans, Ryan Pryce, Rhys Cooper, Jordan Wells, James Jones, Ryan Kershaw, Liam Walker, Harrison Millington, Taylor James, Fisnik Hajdari and Dylan Jones.
