The BUCS National Trophy match will be played at USW’s Sport Park in Treforest. The home side are already Premier South league winners, having been unbeaten all season.

Head of football, Steve Savage, is no stranger to big games. His 2015 team were also league champions, and followed that success by winning the National Cup the following year.

The class of 2018-19 are looking to secure a place in the finals in Nottingham in two weeks. But first, they have to beat their nearest rivals, Cardiff Met.
