HOLYHEAD Hotspur manager Darren Garmey has told his side to embrace the underdogs tag ahead of their crunch Huws Gray Cup final this weekend.

The Holy Islanders will aim to cause a major upset against all-conquering Airbus Broughton on Saturday to secure some silverware from has been a disappointing campaign overall.

They face a formidable opponent in the Wingmakers, who claimed the second-tier title in comfortable fashion to ensure a return to the JD Welsh Premier League next term.

In contrast, Garmey’s side will be heading the other direction after finishing bottom of the Huws Gray Alliance standings, but the Spurs’ boss has challenged his squad to use their poor league form to one side once again and continue their sensational run of results in the competition, which has seen the Anglesey outfit defeat Flint Town United, Ruthin Town and Bangor City on their way to the final.

He said: ““We will be looking to use all the disappointment and hurt we have suffered this season to pull off a huge upset.

“We have beaten Flint, Ruthin and Bangor to get here so we absolutely deserve to be in this position and the players know that and will be approaching this as the biggest game of their careers.

“It’s all set up to be a great day for the club and the supporters who have backed myself and the players all season in what has been a tough league campaign.

“The fact that we are such underdogs makes us a dangerous team, that’s our mentality going into the final.”

The Huws Gray Cup final will be taking place at the home of Conwy Borough and is set to kick off at 2.30pm.
