FC Queens Park have an eye on a league and league cup double and after claiming the scalp of Llanuwchllyn that might just be more than a dream. It was a vintage display by Queens Park who won with time to spare 5-1. They got off the mark in the 1st minute with a goal of sheer class from Nathan Buckley but after the break, the floodgates opened. Straight after the restart, the hosts scored two goals in the space of a minute through Helda Ramos and Edgar Lima before Levi Roberts grabbed the best goal of the match with a spectacular shot from distance. John Rhys Edwards got his first goal for the club with a close range header after the keeper failed to hold a scorching shot from Lima.

Unbeaten Hawarden Rangers failed at the first hurdle when they were beaten on penalties by cup warriors Corwen who seemed to be coasting 2-0 with 7 minutes to go with strikes from Iorweth Jones and Tomos Williams but although Dominic Auty and Jason Wright threw them a lifeline to take the game into a barren spell of extra time, Corwen kept their nerve to win 8-7 in a dramatic sudden death penalty shoot out.

There were plenty of goals in the Brymbo and Penycae game, in fact 9 in all. It was all square after extra time at 4-4 but Penycae progressed with a stoppage time winner through Connor Kendrick. It was a crazy tie, Brymbo were coasting 3-1 with 30 minutes gone, but a hat-trick and a Jimmy Jones goal had the match evenly poised at 4-4 in extra time with Kendrick adding to his personal tally to take the visitors through.

Chirk AAA’s showed why they are strongly tipped to have a good cup run as they defeated Llay Welfare 2-0. To be fair, Llay gave their hosts a real run for their money and thoroughly deserved more from the trip. Matty Thomas gave Chirk an early lead with a powerful low drive and Marcus Davies doubled their tally in the second half.

Struggling Overton came a cropper and they were polished off by Cefn Albion who ended a barren spell to win 5-0. Albion cruised into the next round with a comfortable win after prolific Alex Williams grabbed himself a brace, 17 year old Andrew Jones continued his fine scoring form and Nic Jones and Callum Mannion completed a good performance. New signing goal keeper Nathan Aldridge made a real impact on his debut and also kept a clean sheet.

The Saltney Town versus FC Nomads game was another pulsating affair which require extra time to resolve matters. A relieved Nomads manager Andy Dutton enthused “We won 5-4 on pens in the end after the game ended 1-1. We took a 34th minute lead through Warren Kelly but Saltney got a deserved late leveller through Lewis Burgess in the 4th minute of stoppage time. They played some good football at times and they never stopped working so we had to dig deep and although we bossed extra time we just couldn't get the winner but we kept our nerve to sneak through on spot-kicks but special mention today to man of the match Ryan McCleary who ran the show and was on a different level all game, he done everything but score, but to be fair, we deserved the win and also have Josh Aitken to thank for that penalty save in the shoot out.”

There was just the one Premier Division game and that was at the Adwy where Coedpoeth United met Brickfield Rangers. Rangers ran out 4-0 winners in the end to get within 3 points of the leaders and a game in hand. Things might have turned out slightly differently had ‘Coedy taken their chances through Nathan Jones and Mike Taylor but two goals apiece from Sam Molyneux and Dale Davies settled the clash in Brickfield’s favour.

Division One was devoted to the League Cup also Castell Alun made a sufficient impression against Maesgwyn to capture a 3-1 verdict courtesy of strikes from Matty Holmes(2) and Mark Gallagher with Michael Jones replying.

The Johnstown Youth game against Penley failed to go ahead due to no referee being available.

Rhos Aelwyd booked a safe passage into the next round after securing a 6-2 success against Point of Ayr whose marksmen were Dafydd Robertson, James Haynes, Aled Dodd, Josh Rush(2) and Danny Roberts with Danny Chamberlain and Rob Brown reducing the deficit.

Rhydymwyn took a 1st half lead against Lex Glyndwr through Joshua Cooke who turned the tie on its head after the break. Stimulating the revival was player boss Ricky Evans who opted to come on after the break and he converted a penalty after man of the match Aled Powell had been impeded. In a frantic finish, Powell who was the LEX jewel in the crown grabbed a last gasp winner.

There was limited Division One action but there was time for Llangollen Town to polish off Acrefair 3-1 with strikes from Sam Gostage, Josh Roberts and Liam Marshall and reducing the arrears was Jack Goulbourne.

In the Reserves Division League Cup, Castell Alun crashed out 3-1 against Cefn Druids who had man of the match Alix Godfrey bagging all three of the Druids goals. Reducing the deficit was Nathan Davies.

Nathan Williams and Tegid Wandless had netted for the Wellmen with Jack Kelsall and Liam Jones had got Brymbo within touching distance.
