SEASIDERS PLANNING WARM RECEPTION
Marc Lloyd-Williams and Scott Ruscoe, rivals last season but team-mates now
Aberystwyth Town v TNS
Welsh Premier League
Fri 20 Aug 2004: Away - Park Avenue

SAINTS are sure to face a more than usually rowdy reception at Park Avenue tonight (Friday) when they travel to meet Aberystwyth Town.
Games against the Seasiders always engender rivalry, but there is considerable hostility towards the TNS trio of former Black & Greens who have signed up at Treflan over the past fortnight.
With the Park Avenue club pursuing a policy of using more local players this season, manager Finley decided it was time to go and was quickly followed by the whole of the Merseyside contingent.
His stay at Treflan is likely to be brief, once Steve Evans is fully match fit and Jimmy Aggrey returns from suspension. But that won't prevent the Aber faithful from giving vent to their feelings.
Also out to prove a point will be former Treflan duo Dean Williams and David Bridgwater, released at the end of the last season.
Saints struggled to get the ball in the net despite dominating Afan Lido last Saturday and manager McKenna will be hoping his strikers can regain their touch tonight, with Lloyd-Williams available as back up from the bench.
TNS boss Ken Manager McKenna anticipates a stern test as he looks to build on last week-end's success: "Aber have had a few changes, but they've still got a lot of quality in their side with Dean Williams one of the best keepers in the league, while Bridgy will do well for them in midfield," he said.
With the home side's squad still getting to know each other, this is an ideal opportunity for TNS to repeat last season's Boxing Day win at Park Avenue and maintain a maximum points start to the new campaign.
