Word Cup Second Round Preview

The second round of the Word Cup takes place tonight with a few old friends ready to be reunited.

The Aberdare v Port Talbot Town fixture will see former Cardiff City defensive partners Lee Phillips and Scott Young pitting their managerial wits against each other.

Scott Young and Lee Phillips spent four years together as central defenders at Cardiff City before going their separate ways.

Phillips captained Llanelli to victory in the old League Cup in 2007/08

Both ex-players are now managers and this Tuesday night’s Word Cup second round match brings both men together again as Phillips’ Aberdare Town host Port Talbot.

“Lee’s been on the phone already and it’s been nice to catch up – and while I’m really 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, who is forever adorned by Bluebirds fans for that famous winning goal in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup against Leeds United back in 2002.

“We were together for at least four years and will have some great banter on the touchline on Tuesday night.”

“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.”

The remaining fixture in the Southern section of the draw has Cambrian & Clydach taking on Afan Lido.

The Northern section has Conwy Borough host Bala Town with Gap Connah’s Quay travelling to Rhyl.
