THE last time Wrexham and Swansea met in the FAW Premier Cup final four years ago, a Lee Trundle goal helped Brian Flynn's side to a 2-0 victory at the Vetch Field.
This time round, the Liverpool-born striker - who found the net 22 times during the Swans' promotion campaign - will be looking to gun down the Dragons for Kenny Jackett's men.
But it's strictly professional for Trundle, who declared he was desperately disappointed Welsh football's showpiece occasion comes against a Football League backdrop.
"It's obviously the first time I've played against Wrexham since I left and I'm really looking forward to it because I haven't seen many of the lads for a while," he said.
"It should be a good game of football because both teams like to get the ball down and knock it around and I'm sure Wrexham are very annoyed with the way that they have been relegated and will want to prove a point.
"On top of that they are defending the trophy once again and will want to keep it so that they can end their season on a bright note."
In two seasons at the Racecourse after signing from Rhyl for £60,000, Trundle racked up 27 goals in 73 league appearances.
"It was my first professional club and I still have close connections with it," he added. "I'm just gutted they weren't able to stay in League One so we could have played them next season.
"I had some great times at Wrexham and will always have fond memories of my time there. I'm sure they will see this final as the perfect antidote to the gloom that comes with relegation and I hope they pull through their off-field problems. "No one wants to see any Football League club in such dire straits.
"The way Denis Smith has kept the club together is a remarkable achievement and the players deserve credit too. I know there have been occasions when wages have been paid late but they've carried on regardless. I was delighted when they won the LDV Vans and now they've got another chance to add silverware."
But Trundle warned Swansea are aiming to round off their campaign in style and added: "Everyone here is on a high after winning at Bury.
"We're going out to enjoy ourselves but we want to win the cup, to say nothing of the £100,000 prize money.
"We'll also have the opportunity to show our appreciation to our supporters because the celebrations were cut short on Saturday."
Rewarded with a contract extension that will keep him at Swansea for a further two years, Trundle reckons Jackett's squad can make an impact at the higher level.
"I said when I signed for the club I did not want to spend my career in League Two," he said..
"We look as though we are going places and we don't intend to be languishing at the bottom of the table. If anything, we'll be pushing for promotion because I know there are a few decent teams but the others are pretty much what we've come up against in this division.
"League One teams are likely to play more football and I'm confident that will suit us."
Wrexham will be without captain Darren Ferguson in what will be the last competitive match staged at the Vetch.
The influential midfielder failed to over-come an ankle injury sustained in Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Hudders-field, but Racecourse boss Denis Smith is demanding one last effort. "We're the holders of the cup and we've already won the LDV Vans Trophy," he said yesterday. "We've been invited to a civic reception at the Guildhall on
Saturday so I'd like to have both trophies. "Tomorrow's match is the last chance for my players to demonstrate they are good enough to have stayed in League One."
Central defender Dennis Lawrence has overcome a knee injury and striker Chris Llewellyn is likely to start, subject to a fitness test.
"Darren has been superb and it's disappointing he's going to miss what is a big game," said Smith. "It's been a super competition for us, we've always taken it seriously and have reaped the rewards."
Wrexham have won the BBC Wales-sponsored competition in five of seven seasons, earning close to £750,000 and the Dragons boss added: "Obviously the prize-money is useful, although it's never been the driving force.
"But there's also the bragging rights at stake. That's what I will be emphasising to my lads. While I wasn't too happy with some of the individual performances on Saturday I could, to some extent, under-stand what was going on, even though I don't have to accept it.
"But that was in some respects a mean-ingless game, whereas there's a lot at stake in the game against Swansea. We also have a lot of Welsh boys in the team and this fixture has got to mean something to them as well."
Smith has plenty of admiration for his opposite number Jackett, who achieved promotion in his first full season in charge.
"I've seen them play and they have a number of good players," he said. "It was no accident they won promotion but they have had to endure some bad times in the past few seasons.
"They are now turning things round and sometimes you have to be at rock-bottom in order to make people look beneath the surface to find out exactly what's been going on."
