Welsh Cup: Met and Bont learn last 16 opponents

27th September 2021

The Welsh Cup run has ended for Vale clubs, leaving them to wonder what could have been in the fourth round.

Cardiff Met, who ran out 3-0 winners over Barry Town United, have been drawn away at Colwyn Bay.

The Archers took bragging rights in the first meeting of the season against their Cymru Premier neighbours, thanks to two goals from Adam Roscrow.

Colwyn Bay, who switched from the English to the Welsh football pyramid two years ago, are poised to face top-flight opposition after seeing off Cymru North rivals Gresford Athletic (2-1) and Ruthin Town (5-1).

Meanwhile, Caernarfon Town will stand in the way of Penybont and a place in the quarter finals.

The Bridgend club, under player-manager Rhys Griffiths, were among the first to progress in the fourth round. They beat Cambrian and Clydach Vale 3-1 on Friday, with a brace from Nathan Wood.

The Cofis, who boast arguably the biggest support in domestic Welsh club football, will travel to the SDM Glass Stadium off the back of cup wins over Denbigh Town (4-0) and Prestatyn Town (3-0).

Taffs Well, who conquered Cymru South leaders Llantwit Major, will head north to face another second tier club, Buckley. And Guilsfield, who ended Dinas Powys' heroic cup run, will go south again - this time to meet Swansea University.

There's also an all-Flintshire needle match in the draw with reigning league champions Connah's Quay - whose form has been stuttering of late - drawn away at pacesetting Flint Town United.

As for the holders, The New Saints will travel to Carmarthen, who claimed one of the scalps of the third round, by knocking out Newtown on penalties.
