This Saturday the 2021/22 JD Cymru Premier season will come to an end with Caernarfon Town hosting Flint Town United in the play-off final. 

In recent years the prize for winning the play-offs has been a ticket to the Europa League qualifiers, but since Wales has lost a spot in Europe for the coming season, the reward has had to be altered. 

Its looking likely that this year’s format will be a one-off occurrence as Wales are set to reclaim their 4th European ticket for next year. 


Caernarfon Town (4th) v Flint Town United (5th) | Saturday – 14:00 

Both teams had to battle hard in last weekend’s semi-finals to book their place in this season’s play-off final. 

Flint Town United defended resolutely before winning on penalties against Pen-y-bont, who also missed a spot kick in extra time, while Mike Hayes’ single goal was enough for the Cofis to see off Cardiff Met. 

This is Caernarfon Town’s third appearance in the JD Cymru Premier play-offs since their promotion in 2018, but after losing the semi-final against Cardiff Met in 2019, and then losing last year’s final against Newtown, the Cofis will be determined to go one step further this time around. 

Caernarfon Town have certainly had the better of Flint Town United this season, with the Canaries winning three of the four league meetings between the sides, and the Silkmen have won only once in their last 13 matches against the Cofis. 

A play-off final victory would be a fine accolade at the end of a solid season for both teams as Caernarfon Town equalled their highest ever finish (4th), while Flint Town United secured their best position since 1996 (5th).
