Four home sides all through to Nathaniel MG Cup quarters as Aber shocked at Cam
In tonight’s Nathaniel MG Cup round two action, Aberystwyth Town were the biggest casualty as they bowed out of the Cup to Division One side Cambrian & Clydach Vale BGC.
It’s the first time that the Rhondda club have reached this stage of the competition.
They had already knocked out Barry Town United on penalties in the previous round.
The result made it four home wins out of four, for the home sides this evening.
Sam Jones scored a first-half brace for Dane Williams’s side, before Geoff Kellaway pulled one back for the Green and Whites. David Thomas’ penalty in the last few moments of normal time confirmed their place in the next round of the tournament.
It wasn’t to be for Penybont and Rhys Griffiths, as they narrowly lost to Newtown at Latham Park. Ethan Jones missed a penalty, but followed it up on the rebound, after Wilson saved.
Last year’s finalists Cardiff Metropolitan progressed to the next round, after receiving a bye in the previous round.
The Archers fell behind early on when Luke Bowen scored for Carmarthen Town. That was cancelled out quickly when Rhys Thomas levelled things up.
As the fourth official indicated the additional time, Chris Baker scored with a low finish into the bottom left corner.
Adam Roscrow, on his return to the side after recovering from injury, missed a penalty but set up Tim Parker to ensure the Met would be in the hat for the next round.
In the all-Division One tie between Haverfordwest County and Goytre United, it was the Bluebirds who progressed to the next round.
A total of eight goals were scored at the Bridge Meadow Stadium, as Wayne Jones’ side turned on the style.
Danny Williams was a man on a mission as he scored four goals for the Bluebirds. The young forward is already the top goal scorer in Division One this season.
Lee Trundle and Ashley Bevan were also on the scoresheet, whilst Corey Francis and Sam Johnstone scored for visitors.
The draw for the next round of the tournament will take place after the conclusion of the Northern fixtures next week.
