Brickfield Rangers the current Premier Division League Cup holders had their plans of retaining the trophy scuppered by FC Nomads who took their hosts to extra time to win 3-1. It was an even opening half with Brickfield slightly shading things but Nomads having the best chances. Gary McConnell who had come as a second half sub got Nomads noses in front but with 10 minutes left Danny Holland equalised with a low drive to take the tie into extra time. Mamudo Dabo restored the visitors lead in the 108th minute which then saw Brickfield throw everyone forward in an attempt to equalise and almost did on 114 mins when Nick Wards freekick was excellently saved by the Nomads keeper. With minutes left, Nomads striker Ross Sumner lobbed keeper Andrew Ruscoe to take Nomads into the next round.

The second half again was a tight even affair with no side really testing each other’s keeper but on 65 mins Ellir Edwards was shown a second yellow for a head butt and this would give Mold the encouragement needed to take control of the game. Man of the match Tom Burrows bulldozed his way through the Corwen defence to see his lay of well saved only for the rebound ricochet in. Mold sealed their passage into the semis when super sub Lee Jones rounded the keeper and slotted home. Their confidence grew and late efforts through an own goal and Lee Jones saw them over the line.
