The SPFL Trust Trophy returns for another season with The New Saints and Caernarfon Town representing Wales in this year’s competition.

The New Saints qualified for the competition through winning the JD Cymru Premier title last seasons whilst Caernarfon booked their place by beating Fflint Town in a playoff game after narrowly missing out on a Europea Conference League spot.

Raith Rovers lifted the trophy in last season’s competition but the competition was only contested by Scottish outfits due to the Covid19 pandemic.

The New Saints v Dundee FC | 20:00

The New Saints go into Friday night’s game on great form having knocked seven past  Cardiff Met last weekend. Adrian Cieslewicz bagged a hattrick in that game and will be one for the Dundee defence to look out for come Friday.

Th New Saints home record also provides a boost for the Welsh side having not lost at Park Hall since a narrow defeat at the hands of Newtown back in March 2022.

Dundee FC played their football in the Scottish Championship and currently sit fifth in the league after seven games. They are currently on a disappointing run of form having won just two of their last five games including two defeats and one draw.

Clyde v Caernarfon Town | Saturday – 15:00


The Canaries go into Saturday’s game with a lot of confidence after dispatching Haverfordwest at home on the weekend with a 2-1 victory.

Caernarfon have won every game at the Oval in this season’s Cymru Premier but have had issues away from home with defeats against Haverfordwest and Newtown.

Clyde have had a very difficult start to their season in the third tier of Scottish football, conceding 13 goals in their last four outings including a 5-0 defeat last weekend against Airdrieonians.
