Two WPL clashes in Welsh Cup Draw

The draw for Round 3 of the FAW Welsh Cup was made in Cardiff on Modnay afternoon and there will be two all-Welsh Premier League clashes to look forward to.

Arguably the tie of the Round will be played at Belle Vue, where Rhyl FC will host Bangor City in a repeat of the 2005/06 final, which Rhyl won 2-0 at Wrexham. The clubs will go head-to-head in a dress rehearsal the previous week in the League.

Another great tie will be played at Richmond Park as Carmarthen Town host Port Talbot Town.

The only two other Welsh Premier League sides to be drawn at home are Newtown who will host the winner of Haverfordwest County or Cardiff Met and Afan Lido who host Rhydymwyn of the Huws Gray Alliance.

Holders Prestatyn Town will make the long journey to the South Wales valleys as they face Aberdare Town in the first defence of their crown. Airbus UK Broughton will not find out their opponents until Saturday as their hosts will be the winner of the Caldicot Town v Penybont tie.

TNS face a difficult test at Conwy Borough, whilst gap Connah's Quay's visit to Caersws won't be easy either.

Although both away from home, Bala Town and Aberystwyth Town will be pleased with their draw as the Lakesiders travel to Barry to face Rhoose of Welsh League division 3 and Ian Hughes' Seasiders will make a trip across Mid Wales to face Llanfair Utd of the Spar Mid Wales League.
