Kilmarnock fans took over Rhyl earlier this week as their team took on Connah's Quay Nomads.

Thousands of the Blue and White Army headed for North Wales to watch Angelo Alessio's men beat the Nomads 2-1.

And tens of thousands watched the game live.

S4C’s online broadcast of the Europa League First Qualifying Round First Leg tie attracted a record number of viewers to the Sgorio Facebook Live and Youtube channels.

With the game at Rhyl FC’s Belle Vue sold out weeks in advance, the Welsh language broadcast, drew tens of thousands of viewing sessions from fans in Wales, Scotland and as far afield as the USA and Canada.

The channel also saw 5,000 people register for S4C Clic after Kilmarnock FC’s official website and social media accounts sent out messages encouraging followers to sign up.

Sue Butler, S4C Sports Commissioner, said: "We’re delighted with how many people tuned into the match last night. Although the outcome was not the best from a Welsh point of view, we hope Kilmarnock fans who couldn’t make the game enjoyed the commentary and perhaps may have picked up a word or two in Welsh."
