THERE’S a Connah’s Quay against Flint derby to kick off Welsh Cup proceedings but Nomads and The Silkmen aren’t involved.

The reformed Flint Mountain with Aden Shannon in charge head to Connah’s Quay Town, who enjoyed a brilliant first season in the North East Wales League last time around.

Shannon - a former coach at Flint Town, where Mountain will groundshare this season - has another former Flint favourite Johnny Hill alongside him.

Ex-Silkmen captain Richie Foulkes has joined too and teams up with new signings Gary Roberts - the former Crewe and Port Vale star, Ieuan Hewitt, Kyle Smith, Andy Brown, Chris Li, Calyn Spencer and Jamie King.

More of the same will be boss Gavin Parry’s hopes as Connah’s Quay Town open their new campaign.

Last time out, it turned out to be a brilliant, trophy-laden campaign for Town, who secured promotion to the Premier Division of the North East Wales League.

Lee Reynolds, Kyle Amos, Kyle Reid, Steven Berry and Jamie Wynne are all unavailable for Town.

Balancing this out, new signings Jordan Hensel, Owen Edwards, Owen Hallmark and Kieron Hughes are all likely to be involved as Parry (pictured left) looks to start on a high.

“I was disappointed with our cup form last year so I hope we are more competitive in them this season,” said Beck, who has brought in six players to add to his North East Wales League title-winning side.

Jack Gibbons, Bailey Roberts, Nathan Williams and Ash Davies join from Holywell Reserves, Matthew Bennett comes in from Rhuddlan Town while former Holywell and Flint player Ryan Davies joins after a spell out of the game.

“We have lost our captain Sion McHugh to Mold and Liam Simon and Lewis Williams have joined Denbigh and Saltney respectively,” added Beck.
