PRESTATYN Town are dreaming of European football once again after a favourable JD Welsh Cup draw.

The all-conquering Seasiders’ avoided top-flight opposition at the quarter final stage and will face JD Cymru North title rivals Flint Town United for a place in the final four.

This provides Neil Gibson and his side with a golden opportunity to bring continental qualification back to the Motion Finance Stadium despite their second-tier status, which would represent a significant achievement for a club that have ridden on the crest of a wave throughout the campaign.

Although their S4C Sgorio cup encounter at Cae y Castell is a stern test of their credentials, there is nothing to suggest that Town are not more than capable of getting a result.

They struck a telling championship blow to the Silkmen at the same venue with a narrow 3-2 victory earlier in the season, which is just one of a large number of exceptional displays that see them primed for a return to the JD Cymru Premier pending a successful FAW Domestic Licence application.

You almost run out of superlatives to describe just what is being accomplished by the Seasiders’ this term.

They invested heavily in their squad during the summer following the change in ownership and this is reaping rewards on the field.

Gibson has blended the right mix of young talent, the majority of which has come through the club’s Academy system, with experienced figures who have played and won trophies at the very top.

Another standout feature of their overall success is their ability to win games in different ways.

They have given out their fair share of thrashings during the season but they have had to dig deep in recent weeks, coming from behind to grind out a result or rely on one moment of magic to see them extend their sensational run of form.

This was no more evident than in their recent JD Welsh Cup tie at Swansea University, where they were forced to defend for long periods until Jordan Davies’ tremendous strike ensured a place in the hat for the next round.

It is moments like this that separate the good teams from the great, and given the fact that Town have already beaten top-flight opposition in the Nathaniel MG Cup this season they can head into the business end of the competition brimming with confidence.

Looking past Niall McGuinness’ side would be a mistake, especially when you consider the attacking threat they pose and their ability to perform consistently on the big stage.

Gibson’s biggest task between now and the end of the season is to ensure complacency does not set in, and this will be crucial to the overall outcome of their quarter final.

If they remain focused on the task in hand, take things one game at a time and perform as they are capable of, then bigger and better things could be on the horizon for a club of which much was expected during the summer.

The Seasiders’ have more than lived up to their pre-season hype, and who’s to say it will not end with more than just a league triumph and promotion this term.
