The last two local clubs in the FAW Trophy have gone out at the second round stage after Montgomery and Berriew returned home empty handed.

Trailing 2-0 at the break, Montgomery still had their chances at Blanau Ffestiniog but were reduced to 10 men on the hour after Lee Jones was dismissed and couldn’t find the breakthrough they needed.

Berriew faced a tough journey to reigning champions Glan Conwy and only just missed out in a five-goal thriller. Strikers Martyn Zieman and Will Thomas gave Berriew a 2-1 half time advantage but two in the opening five minutes of the second half saw the holders through despite relentless Berriew pressure to equalise.

Huws Gray Alliance Cup

There were mixed fortunes for the local clubs in the Huws Gray Alliance Cup.

Action from Buckley v Technogroup Welshpool (courtesy of Buckley FC web site)Technogroup Welshpool’s woes continued at Buckley where they were on the wrong end of a 4-1 verdict. A pair second half goals from Terry Pugh, along with a 25th minute own goal from George Clifton and a late fourth from Gary McConnell condemned town who replied in the 81st minute through Scott Bright.

Winger Stuart Buckley-Robins was on hand to score a second-half winner as Guilsfield overcame Mid Wales rivals Rhayader 2-1. Wayne Farmer’s own goal after 21 minutes put Guilsfield ahead before Joe Price brought Rhayader level five minutes before the break. Buckley-Robins, who has a habit of scoring crucial goals, popped up on the hour to send the villagers through.

Spar Mid Wales League

Llanrhaeadr made it five wins from five and doubled their goals tally for the season in a 4-1 win over defending champions Penparcau. Alun Jones bagged a hat-trick and a cracking Ben White strike made it four before the visitors had two penalties saved by Darren Powell in the Llanrhaeadr goal. They pulled one back – the first conceded in the league by Llanrhaeadr this season – but it didn’t prevent the villagers going three points clear at the top. 

Dyffryn Banw’s mixed season continued following their shock 5-0 home defeat to Dolgellau while Bow Street kept in touch at the top with a 4-1 win over Carno. Waterloo Rovers returned from Builth Wells with a point following a 2-2 draw while Tywyn Bryncrug beat Presteigne 3-1.

In Division Two, Llanfyllin are climbing the table after beating Abermule 2-1, and Llanfair recorded their first victory since stepping up from the Amatuer League by overcoming Tragron Turfs 2-0 with goals from Elliot Jones and Paul Griffiths. Four Crosses’ inconsistency continued with a 1-0 home reverse against Rhosgoch while Kerry stayed top with a 1-0 with at Talgarth.
