TOP spot is Connah’s Quay Nomads’ target as the 2022 Adran North League programme gets underway.

Nomads will be strong favourites to get the year up-and-running with a victory as they go to bottom-of-the-table Denbigh Town on Sunday.

However, Nomads’ boss Jordan Parry isn’t thinking about the league standings at the moment.

“To be honest with you, I’m not interested in any horse race,” stressed Parry, who hopes captain Kirstie Kural (pictured right) continues her good run of form.

“We are going to go game-by-game. We have just got to win the next game.”

Connah’s Quay go into the match following a 4-0 loss to top flight The New Saints in the Ardal Trophy before Christmas.

“It would have been a different game if Charlie (Bolland) our keeper didn’t go off,” added Parry. “It was a tough one to take.”

“Charlie’s back to full fitness. It’s going to take a lot more than a knee to the face to keep her out.”

If there are any slip-ups from leaders Llandudno or second-placed Nomads, Wrexham could be top come Sunday tea-time.

Steve Dale’s charges, fresh from a hugely positive showing against Ardal Premier leaders Swansea City before Christmas, head to sixth-placed Pwllheli to begin their year.

There’s a tough task for Airbus UK Broughton, who go to fourth-placed Bethel.

Llandudno will keep hold of pole position if they can beat visitors Llanfair United.

The side from the coast took over at the top before Christmas courtesy of a 13-0 win over Denbigh Town.

Before that match, Llandudno were stunned by a brilliant Wrexham comeback, with Rosie Hughes scoring twice in a 5-3 verdict.

In the FA Women’s Super League undefeated leaders Arsenal visit Birmingham City on Sunday.

Manchester City are in Brighton while Reading host Leicester.

In tomorrow’s only game, Everton go to Aston Villa.
