Welsh Cup round one (2 pm)

Division One

Rhyl v Denbigh Town (1 pm)
Great clash in prospect with fourth-place Rhyl hosting a Denbigh side lying second.
Both teams have six points from their three matches, each enduring a defeat at the hands of leaders Llanfair. Denbigh are above Rhyl only on goal difference.
The Lilywhites have a superb strike force of Natalie Harrison, Ceri Purvis, Sade Benjamin and Niomi Taylor in their armoury, while Denbigh possess the goal-getting talents of Rosie Hughes, who recorded a double hat-trick against Northop Hall in the Welsh Cup last weekend.

Division Two

Caernarfon Town v Connah’s Quay Nomads (1 pm)
Undefeated Nomads travel to Caernarfon, who have won one out of five so far.
The Quay are looking like potential title contenders, with lots of experience in the squad and numerous players capable of scoring goals.
Caernarfon are a young, developing side, who have shown snatches of good form this term, but have generally found things an uphill task.

Llanberis v NFA (1.30 pm)

Llanberis player-manager Sioned Phillips

Fifth hosts fourth in what could be a tremendous contest.
Llanberis will be aware that NFA caused a big upset in their last game, when they inflicted a first loss of the season on previous leaders Mountain Rangers.
Both teams have two wins apiece and each has also experienced what a heavy defeat feels like.
Lots of talent on both sides and could go either way.

Mountain Rangers v Amlwch Town (1 pm)

Mountain Rangers ladies will be going all out to end Amlwch’s unbeaten record

Match of the day in Division Two.
How will Rangers respond from their first defeat last time out having cruised to victory in their first three matches?
Will table-toppers Amlwch extend their unbeaten record to five games in the league?
This fixture brings together North Wales’ top-scorer in all competitions, 11-goal Lexi Crawley of Amlwch Town, and Rangers net-buster Katie Bowe, who has netted 10 times so far.
So many other players are capable of making a difference though.

Penrhyn Bay v Holywell Town (1 pm)

Penrhyn Bay ladies

Penrhyn will be targeting a second league win of the season at the expense of a Holywell side currently lying bottom, but improving all the time.
In their last game, the Wellwomen were 3-0 down to Caernarfon, but fought back to 3-2 and only just missed out on a first point.

Welsh Cup round one (2 pm)

Corwen v Llandudno
The winners of this tie will be home to Llanfair United in round two.
This was the only Welsh Cup northern section first round tie called off last weekend due to a waterlogged pitch.
Another attempt will be made to play the game on Sunday, but the current wet weather does not make for optimism.
