The game is a tribute to the late Howells, who died aged just 40 while on a stag weekend in Manchester back in August.

Howells, who had just taken a coaching role at his hometown side Maesteg before his death, also represented Tondu during a distinguished career.

The game, which will be played annually between the two clubs, will also help support the respective junior sections.

Tomorrow night's fixture – which is being played at the Old Parish – kicks off at 7.15pm.
