There are three all Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League ties in the Third Round of the FAW Welsh Cup, following Tuesday’s draw.
Wales team manager Chris Coleman and former Wales International Matthew Jones made the draw at the FAW Headquarters in Cardiff and the ex-Llanelli midfielder drew his hometown former club away at gap Connah’s Quay, which is the last draw the 2010/11 Champions would have wanted after suffering a 6-1 home defeat to Nomads on Sunday.
Beaten semi-finalists last year, Airbus UK Broughton will be pleased with home advantage, but in Mark Jones’ Port Talbot Town, they will face a difficult test. The other top-flight tie sees current Welsh Premier League leaders Prestatyn Town travel south to the League’s bottom club Afan Lido.
Current Champions TNS will be delighted with home advantage and they will host Chris Herbert’s Conwy Borough at Park Hall, whilst last season’s Runners Up Cefn Druids will be aiming for another Welsh Premier League scalp when they travel to Newtown.
Aberystwyth Town will be another club grateful for home advantage, but they would have preferred other opponents than the in-form Rhyl who top the Huws Gray Alliance currently.
Bala Town travel to Monmouth Town and Carmarthen Town visit Holyhead Hotspur with both matches a potential banana skin.
