Port Talbot boss Young looks for Word Cup progress at expense of old mate
IT will be friends reunited when Port Talbot head to the Cynon Valley to take on Aberdare in the second round of the Word Cup this evening (7.30).
The tie will see Town boss Scott Young go up against his former Cardiff City defensive partner Lee Phillips.
"Lee's been on the phone and it's been nice to catch up; and while I'm looking forward to a bit of banter during the game it's a great chance for us to prove how good we are," said Young.
"We haven't started as well as we'd have liked in the league so the Word Cup gives us a chance to grow stronger and show what we can do.
"Their players will have a point to prove against a Welsh Premier side. But I know one thing for certain; it's Lee's round when we get to the bar after the game — whatever the result."
Also this evening, Afan Lido are home to Cambrian & Clydach of Welsh League division one (7.30).
