IT'S the Flintshire derby of all time on Saturday as Airbus UK Broughton visit Gap Connah's Quay with a place in the Europa League - and €200,000 - at stake.

The Nomads have generously made the game free admission to all spectators at the Deeside Stadium as they seek their first-ever place in Europe, while the Wingmakers chase a fourth successive Europa League appearance after visits to Latvia, Norway and Croatia in the last three years.

The game is also a meeting between Airbus director of football Andy Preece and his former assistant at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium, Andy Morrison, who took over at the Nomads earlier this season and guided them to a top six spot.

The Wingmakers should be able to field a full-strength squad with the exception of Wayne Riley, while Connah's Quay will be without the suspended Danny Harrison, sent-off in the semi-final win over Carmarthen Town, and first-choice keeper John Danby who has an injured thumb.

Kick-off is at 5.15pm and the game is also being shown live on S4C. Whatever the outcome, Flintshire will have a European representative again this summer!
