The draw for the 4th Round of the Welsh Cup was made in Aberystwyth in front of the live S4C cameras on Saturday evening.
Former Aber Town legends Aneurin Thomas and Mike Davies made the draw, which sees Huws Gray Alliance leaders Rhyl face another tough test at Champions TNS.

There is sure to be three non-Welsh Premier League clubs in the last eight, whilst there are also three all top-flight matches.

Nev Powell returns to his former club Connah’s Quay, Newtown host Airbus, whilst Carmarthen Town will be pleased with home advantage, but Bala Town are tough opponents.

Minnows Chepstow Town who play in Level 4 of the FAW Pyramid will be delighted with home advantage when they host Haverfordwest County who play two tiers above them. Flint Town will enjoy home advantage again when they host Caerau Ely and Barry Town are another club to enjoy home advantage again when they host fellow-Welsh League opponents from today's postponed clash between Pontardawe and Goytre.

The final game will be played at Bastion Gardens as Prestatyn Town host the impressive Swansea-based side West End.
