Welsh Cup Second Round Review

Splott Albion caused an upset in the Southern section of the Welsh Cup second round by beating Croesyciliog 1-0 over the weekend.

The South Wales Amateur League side are currently bottom of Division One thanks to one draw from their five league games this season.

But a James Hexter goal ensured they would be in the draw for the next round at the expense of their opponents who have started brightly in Division Two of the Welsh League.

The result of the day goes to Trefelin BGC who netted 11 goals without reply against a hapless Caerau side.

Welsh League Division Two outfit Llantwit Major won comfortably at home to Trelewis 6-2 thanks to goals from Lee Pratt, Gethin Jennings, Stuart Lynsey, Paul Macgrath and a double from Luke Dawes. Paul Duncan scored a brace of his own for the visitors but it was not enough to help them progress.

A late Chris Vardon penalty helped AFC Llwydcoed to a dramatic 2-1 over Penrhiwceiber Rangers.

Stephen Thomas had put Llwydcoed ahead before Craig Mason equalised for the Rangers. But Vardon’s 87th minute winner sent his side through to round 3.

Fairfield United and Cefn Fforest played out a 12 goal thriller which hosts Fairfield won 8-4.

In the Central section, Llanfair United trounced Builth Wells 7-3.

Berriew were also big winners over Llansantffraid Village winning 5-1 whilst Llandridnod Wells and Aberaeron also booked their places in round 3 by defeating Waterloo Rovers and Bow Street respectively.

The Northern section brought about some crackers including Coedpoeth United’s penalty win over Gresford Athletic.

As extra time could not bring a winner after the game had finished 2-2, Coedpoeth held their nerve to win 4-2 on penalties.

Llanrug United thrashed St. Asaph 5-0 and Nefyn United conquered Blaenau Ffestiniog 7-3 to ensure a safe passage into round 3.
