RUABON ROVERS captain Andrew Swarbrick was licking his lips when his side were handed a first round trip to Coedpoeth United.

Swarbrick has a great scoring record when it comes to playing on United’s infamous sloping pitch.But that’s not going to happen tomorrow as Coedpoeth are now playing their home games at Lex’s ground.

“I’ve scored 15 goals in the three games I’ve played at Coedpoeth so I’m a bit gutted not to play there,” said Swarbrick, whose Rovers team has been boosted by the arrival of Cefn Albion trio Jimmy Jones, Connor Kendrick and Aaron Holman.

Gareth Edwards is the manager in charge with former Crewe Alex midfielder and Rhos Aelwyd manager Steve Walters arriving as Director of Football.

FC Queen’s Park head to Sychdyn and there are two all Ardal League clashes with Penycae at home to Saltney Town and Rhos Aelwyd making the trip to Rhydymwyn.

Rhos player boss Aled Parry said: “We’ve been very fortunate to retain all our playing squad from last season.

“After a good pre-season we’re looking to begin with a good performance against a strong Rhydymwyn side to help build momentum before starting our league campaign.”

Castell Alun Colts will have home advantage over Corwen, Brickfield Rangers welcome Mynydd Isa Spartans and Caerwys host Hawarden Rangers.

New Brighton Villa make the trip to Rhostyllen for whom Paul Gray is the new man in charge.

FC United of Wrexham are ready to rumble tomorrow!

They head to North Wales Coast (East) League Y Glannau and United have drawn the attention of a famed boxing announcer.

FC United posted a picture of the Welsh Cup on Twitter earlier this month and famed ring announcer Michael Buffer replied: "The historic FAW Welsh Cup is certainly one magnificent looking trophy!! #LetsGetRedyToRumble"

The club's sporting director Andrew Ruscoe said: "It has been an extremely tough preseason for FC United of Wrexham but this was purposely constructed so that we could gather a group of lads who will go through brick walls for our club and lads who literally just want to play football with smiles on their faces.

"Our management team David Hughes and Jason Ratcliffe have been fantastic and they have brought together a top group of lads, with plenty of experience, who we feel are worth investing our time into.

"The morale in the camp is the best I have ever been around and this Saturday we can't wait to make our debut as a club in the fantastic FAW Welsh Cup."

Chris Roberts, Jim Gray, Daniel Buck, Shane Burke, Osian Jones and Kirk Ratclife are all likely to feature, as well as Jamie Evans.
