We’ve tried to list every scorer but are often in the hands of the Cymru Football App where many names have been incorrect so far (as well as scores).

We do realise it’s early days and everyone is getting used to something new. If you spot any wrong names for scorers or any other errors, please let us know on Twitter and we’ll gladly correct them. @NWSportDave

Amlwch Town 4 Pentraeth 0

Two goals apiece from Jac Thomas and Rhys Roberts saw Chris Byast’s Amlwch side safely through to the second round of the Welsh Cup.
It was a performance full of character and determination from the hosts, having been reduced to 10 men on the half-hour after Liam Billington was shown a red card.
Dan Jones also missed a penalty for the all-blues, but this was very much their day.

Bangor 1876 8 Menai Bridge Tigers 2

Chris Jones was a four-goal hero for an 1876 outfit which thrashed a team expected to be one of their chief rivals in the North Wales Coast West Premier Division this season.
Jones has a great history in the Welsh Cup from his days as a Bangor City player, but today he proved capable of being a crucial weapon in 1876’s bid for glory this term.
The hosts got off to a flyer with two goals from Cameron Barry before Sion Hogan replied from the penalty spot.
Chris Jones delivered a double and Les Davies was also on target, Dean Redmond responding for Bridge to make it 5-2 at the break.
Early in the second half, Jones completed his hat-trick and added a fourth via a penalty before Gethin Thomas made it eight.

Blaenau Amateurs 0 Meliden 3

Fantastic action shot of Meliden’s Ashley Lally taken by DAMON MEAD

Meliden put on a spellbinding display at Cae Clyd, scoring all three goals in the first half.
The visitors struck first on 11 minutes when a defensive error for Blaenau caught keeper Cian Williams off guard while trying to keep Sam Haddon at bay, only for the ball to go loose and Ashley Lally found an empty net.
In the 19th minute Dan Beattie looped the ball into the box from the left and found James Cairns, who slotted into the bottom left corner to make it 2-0.
Two minutes before the break, Meliden were awarded a dubious penalty which Cairns stepped up and converted.
There was some concern for the visitors around 15 minutes from the end as they went down to 10 men following an injury to Paul Welburn, with all subs having been used, but it did not affect the result.

Bodorgan 0 Bodedern Athletic 11

Marc Evans and Sam Gregson both notched hat-tricks as Boded ran riot at their Anglesey neighbours.
New signing Asa Thomas bagged a brace for the second game on the bounce, Ryan Taylor, Casey Boylan (pen) and Tom Wood with the rest.

Caerwys 3 Llanelwy Athletic 5

Dan Price helped guide Llanelwy through to the next stage with a hat-trick at Caerwys.
Dan Porter and Ste Kirk were also on the mark for the visitors, Keion Davies, Ethan Farren and Callum Pritchard for the hosts.

Castell Alun Colts 1 Brickfield Rangers 2

A tough encounter for Brickie but they edged through thanks to goals from Andy Vale and match-winner Ben Pritchard.
Castell had earlier taken the lead through Nathan Davies.

Coedpoeth United 1 FC Queen’s Park 4

The Park recovered from going a goal down to register an emphatic win over Coedy.
Although the visitors began well, it was United who struck first with a smart chip over the keeper from debutant Harry Jones on 14 minutes.
Curtis Neary equalised from the penalty spot before half time.
After the break, the Park were outstanding, Barry Torrence heading home twice in clinical fashion before 16-year-old Liam Lawrence fired an absolute beauty into the top corner on his adult football debut.

CPD Cefni 2 Caergybi 4

How about this photo of Gary-Jo Owen scoring for Caergybi with an overhead kick? Great work from Trevor Owen – thanks Trevor

Two goals each from Gary-Jo Owen and Louis Chapman secured Caergybi’s safe passage to the next round.
Owen’s first was an early contender for goal of the season – a classic overhead kick.
Craig Evans and Marc Parry hit back for Cefni, who were reduced to 10 men early in the second half.

CPD Y Felinheli 4 CPD Mynydd Llandegai 0

After taking a 3-0 lead into the break this Welsh Cup tie was heading only one way.
Gruff John (2), Caio Hughes and Gavin Lloyd-Jones provided the home goals.

Gaerwen 1 Glantraeth 4

Tudur Williams put Glantraeth firmly in command of this Welsh Cup tie with two superb first-half goals.
The prolific Scott Hughes added a third for the visitors before the break.
Battling Gaerwen hit back through Tom Wilkes in the second half, but Aled Steele clinched it for the away tea by blasting in their fourth late on.

Greenfield 1 Rhydymwyn 4

According to Rhydymwyn’s social media page this was their first competitive match in 487 days.
The Flintshire villagers showed no signs of rustiness as Owen Manley, Charlie Bradley (2) and Adam Woosey (pen) earned them a great win at Greenfield, for whom the only highlight of a below-par performance was a Danny Calvert goal.

Halkyn and Flint Mountain 1 Connah’s Quay Town 1 (Town won 4-2 on pens)

Pete Martin’s headed late equaliser was in vain as Mountain crashed out of the Welsh Cup on penalties.
John Coady had earlier given Town a 56th minute lead.

Hawarden Rangers 4 Mynydd Isa Spartans 2

Ryan Tierney, Josh Williams (2) and an own goal clinched victory for Hawarden, Jack Aitken and Tim Samuel hitting back for the visitors.

Henllan 0 Bro Cernyw 3

Rhidian Williams, Harry Kirkham and Stephen Parry got the goals which mattered in this all North West Coast East encounter.

Elliot Croston levelled, then Jamie Haggas and Dan Hughes struck late to secure the victory.

Llannerchymedd 2 Aberffraw 2 (Llannerchymedd won 3-0 on pens)

I’m going to guess and say this is Bambi’s goal for Llannerchymedd (No 4). If I am wrong I will gladly change it. One thing for certain – this is another cracker from the camera of JOHN ELFRYN OWEN

Aberffraw’s failings from the penalty spot cost them in this all-island derby at Tan Parc.
Nathan Moore put the visitors ahead, but James Burgess and Dan Thomas replied to give the hosts the lead.
However, Moore levelled and spot kicks were eventually needed to settle tie, Berffro missing their first three, while Medd converted theirs to seal success.

Llannefydd 2 Llansannan 3

What a result for Llansannan in this much-awaited local derby.
Ifan Jones, Gruff Roberts and Gwion Bibby grabbed the goals which clinched the win, Jared Roberts and Luke Appleby on target for Llannefydd, who were 3-0 down at the break.

Mountain Rangers 1 Nefyn United 3

Ifan Jones, a Simon Kay own goal and a late decider from Carl Jones ensured Nefyn advanced.
Kay also scored for his own team from a penalty.

New Brighton Villa 1 Chirk AAA 3

A great effort and performance from the Yellers, Chris Stanton scoring their goal, but unfortunately they came up just short.
Five-times cup winners Chirk took the lead when a Matty Williams 20 yard free kick set them on the way in the 12th minute.
Villa equalised in the 20th minute but soon after Dale Davies put the Colliers back ahead.
Louie Middlehurst secured the win in the 72nd minute to put Chirk in the hat for the next round, which will be played in a fortnight.

Penmaenmawr Phoenix 3 Llandyrnog United 5

Danny Roberts marked the start of his 21st season at Llandyrnog with an unexpected goalkeeping appearance!

Sean James (2), Sam Crompton, Nathan Rose and Tom Sharples bagged the goals that put Llandyrnog through.
Dyrny goalkeeper Dylan Jones came off injured in the first half and Danny Roberts picked up the gloves in a game that marks his 21st season at the club. Probably not how he expected things to go.
Ten-man Phoenix responded via Alfie Caldicott (2) and Will Bibby.

Penrhyndeudraeth 3 Talysarn Celts 1

Iwan Williams reached the semi-finals of the Welsh Cup in 2016-17 when he was manager of Caernarfon Town.
How far can he get in 2021-22 as boss of Penrhyndeudraeth? Well he has certainly progressed a round after today’s win over Talysarn.
Jac Jones put Celts in front from a penalty at Maes-y-Parc, but Richard Jones and Steven Jones turned things around with goals for Penrhyn before the interval.
Cai Henshaw made it 3-1 early in the second half and 3-1 is how it stayed.

Penycae 4 Lex XI 2

Visitors Lex led twice in the second half through George Baxter and a Josh Thompson penalty, but Penycae prevailed in the end.
Alex Rowlands’ excellent free kick was the pick of their goals, Oliver Johnson, Josh Hughes and Zac Davies with the rest.

Rhos Aelwyd 2 Cefn Mawr Rangers 0

Tom Smith notched both goals for Rhos Aelwyd in their clash with Cefn Mawr Rangers at Ponciau Banks.

Ruabon Rovers 2 Saltney Town 7

A hat-trick for Tommy Booth, brace for Addie Callaghan, a goal from Carl Pleavin plus a Corey Mason strike on debut sent Saltney roaring into the next round.
The Bordermen led 5-0 at half time, but the second period was much closer with newcomers Ruabon hitting back through Michael Jones and Chris Bennion.

St Asaph City 2 Rhuddlan Town 2 (Rhuddlan won 4-2 on pens)

Check out the skill of the young lady in the background, who despite carrying a toddler is able to pass the ball back to the waiting players. Looks like a slide rule pass too! Picture: RICHARD BATES (many thanks Richard)

Rhuddlan were delighted to come away with a penalty shoot-out victory in this hard-fought cup tie.
Having so many players missing, Town had to fast-track Marcus Scott, who had only signed earlier in the week, into the starting line-up, while manager Keiran Evans was forced into playing again after no action at all in pre-season.
Former manager Wayne Hughes was back on the sidelines helping run the show.
Ellis Blench put Saints ahead in the 31st minute, but Ryan Potts equalised before half time.
Town were the better team for most of the second half, hitting the bar before Potts headed in his second from a great cross.
