Gap Connah's fifth placed finish in 2015-16 was their highest ever in the Welsh Premier League

Gap Connah's Quay played out a goalless draw with Norwegian side Stabaek in their Europa League first qualifying round first leg at Rhyl's Belle Vue.

The Nomads took the last Europa League spot in the Welsh Premier League with a play-off win over Airbus in May.

Stabaek and India international keeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu was forced into a fine save from Michael Wilde's shot.

Nicolai Naess came close for Stabaek late on with a wayward effort but Connah's Quay held on to seal a draw.

The two teams will play their reverse fixture in Norway on Thursday, 7 July 19:00 BST.
