Cardiff Met vs Barry Town United| JD Cymru Premier | Match Preview

We are in action on Friday evening this week as the squad make the short journey into the capital to face a Cardiff Metropolitan University side level on points with us after the opening 16 games of the JD Cymru Premier League season.

Having narrowly lost our last 2 league games despite spirited performances from the players, Gavin Chesterfield will be looking to secure all 3 points this Friday as we move into a busy festive period.

Met’ have become somewhat familiar opponents for us this season, with the match at 19:45 on Friday evening becoming the fourth time we have faced the Archers in all competitions. Unfortunately, Met’ ran out victorious on all three previous meetings this season, with 2 wins in the cup competitions at the Cyncoed Campus Stadium and a victory for the Archers (1-0) in the reverse league fixture at Jenner Park in October. Indeed, Gavin and the players will be keen to get the better of a Met’ side this weekend, who have become something of ‘bogey’ team for the dragons so far this term.

We currently find ourselves on 19 points, just 3 points off the top-half of the table but, similarly, only 3 points above the relegation zone. With both sides level on points going into the fixture, the match under the lights at Cyncoed on Friday is likely to be a crucial one in determining our ultimate league position with just 6 games of the first-phase of the JD Cymru Premier League remaining.

As always, your support at Cardiff Metropolitan University this Friday evening would be much appreciated by all at the club.

Robbie Patten signs new Barry Town contract

Barry Town United are delighted to confirm that midfielder Robbie Patten has signed a new contract with the football club.

Robbie first signed for the club in the summer of 2018. His debut season in yellow and blue ended in European Qualification.

Since his debut in a 2-0 win at home to Connah’s Quay Nomads on the 1st September 2018 Robbie has gone on to make 56 appearances. Robbie suffered a frustrating season recovering from injury but returned to full fitness towards the tail end of the season and is fit and ready for pre season. His displays in a Barry shirt have also earned him a Wales C Cap and a nomination for the Cymru Premier Young Player of The Year.

Gavin Chesterfield said: “Robbie as we know has endured a tough few seasons with his injury, but he has worked extremely hard to return to full fitness. Robbie is a big part of how we like to play football and has proven during his time with us his undoubted quality.”
