BARRY Town United are back in training for their European adventure and will learn their fate on Tuesday (11th June), when the opening draw of the 2019-20 campaign takes place in Nyon, Switzerland.

Gavin Chesterfield's team will be one of 14 sides set to scrap it out in the UEFA Europa League preliminary round and, as one of the unseeded outfits, Barry's opponents will be one of the seven seeds.

This means that a trip to the far-flung Faroe Islands could be on the cards, with the likes of Gibraltar, Kosovo, Luxembourg, Northern Ireland and San Marino completing the list of possible destinations.

One of two Faroe representatives, KÍ Klaksvík successfully negotiated this stage last season, before being edged out by Barry's inaugural European opponents of 1994, Zalgiris Vilnius of Lithuania.

Meanwhile, NSÍ Runavík, put four past Neil Lennon's Hibernian in last season's meeting on the Faroe Islands, ultimately falling to the Edinburgh club in a remarkable 12-5 aggregate defeat.

Among other notable results on the European stage, Runavík recorded a goalless draw with Fulham in 2011, as well as a 1-0 win over Dinamo Tblisi a couple of campaigns prior.

Winners of Gibraltar's Rock Cup, Europa FC have already encountered JD Welsh Premier League opposition, losing 4-3 on aggregate to The New Saints in the 2017-18 season.

Last time out, Europa suffered a 6-1 aggregate humbling against FC Prishtina and the Kosovan runners-up could provide difficult adversaries for the Town, if paired together.

Among the more travel-friendly options are Luxembourg's Progrès Niederkorn, a club celebrating their centenary year, with a European history stretching back to the 1970s.

Notorious aggregate winners over Pedro Caixinha's Glasgow Rangers in the 2017-18 qualifiers, Progrès then ended the chances of Hungary's Honved in last season's edition.

Before then, their most notable appearances in Europe came against the likes of Grasshoppers of Zurich, as well as a glamour tie with Real Madrid in the then-European Cup.

Flying the flag for Northern Ireland, Cliftonville would be the closest trip, yet the Belfast outfit are experienced European campaigners, with no fewer than 32 previous outings.

Finally, La Fiorita could offer the strongest chance for Barry to advance, with the representatives of San Marino beaten in 14 of their 15 competitive European matches to date.

With their two-legged preliminary round tie to be played on 27th June and 4th July respectively, Tuesday's draw will reveal which of these seven names stands in Barry's way.

Should the club win through, then a spot awaits in the first qualifying round, where potential opponents include the likes of Malmo, Molde, Brondby, Kilmarnock and Rangers.

Romantically, former European foes Aberdeen will also start their Europa League campaign at this stage.

First though, Barry will prepare for the preliminary round with a hat-trick of June friendlies.

After tackling Cardiff Met behind closed doors on Saturday 8th June, Barry welcome a Panjab representative side to Jenner Park on Saturday 15th June (3pm kick-off).

Then, Chesterfield's men cross the Irish sea to take on Ballymena United on Saturday 22nd June (1pm), with the Sky Blues set to embark on a European tour themselves.

In other news, the club was delighted to see Mo Touray named the JD Welsh Premier League's Young Player of the Season at Saturday evening's awards.

Wing-backs Chris Hugh and the now-departed Macauley Southam-Hales were also selected as members of the Welsh top flight's team of the season.
