Ton Pentre begin the 2017/18 Welsh League Division One season at Cwmbran Celtic on Saturday (12 August).
Bulldogs manager Lee Phillips has been busy throughout the summer assembling his squad for the new season by retaining the core from the last campaign and adding several new players over the past month.
Phillips and his squad will be keen for a positive start after a pre-season campaign that saw the Bulldogs win four and draw one of their five matches. In comparison, Celtic played six, winning four and losing two.
The Bulldogs are likely to be without Steve Williams for the match due to a hamstring injury so will take up a position on the sidelines in his assistant manager role, meanwhile, the Bulldogs are likely to welcome back Thomas Davies and Leon Jacka from injury.
The match at Celtic Park kicks off at 2:30pm.
