REST OF THE FAW TROPHY THIRD ROUND REPORTS
Rhayader Town 1 CPD Llannefydd 3
Llannefydd prevailed with a superb effort at Y Weirglodd against a team operating at a level higher in the Welsh pyramid.
The North Wales Coast East Premier Division side led 2-0 at half time through goals from Jac Davies and Luke Appleby.
Jamie Evans pulled one back for Rhayader on 75 minutes, but Ynyr Clwyd grabbed the decisive third goal for Llannefydd after 83.
Aberffraw 1 Berriew 4
Paul Bryant’s early goal was as good as it got for underdogs Aberffraw against their distinguished visitors from Powys.
Veteran Bryant put Berffro in front after just four minutes, but Richard Davies levelled and an Arwel Williams own goal made it 2-1 to the tier three travellers.
Davies and Drew Cook added further goals for Berriew in the second half.
Caersws 2 Rhostyllen 0
A first-half Glyn Coney penalty after Will Thomas was upended while rounding the keeper and a 70th minute Will Nevitt own goal from a Luke Mumford corner was enough to send the Bluebirds through.
Cefn Albion 2 Chirk AAA 1
This clash of the Trophy giants went the way of the Cefners.
Dion Gibbins gave Albion an early lead, Louie Middlehurst equalised on 15 minutes, but Jordan Jones put away the winner midway through the second half.
Llangollen Town 2 Welshpool Town 0
Goals from Kristian Jones and Rupeni Thorn sent Llangollen into the fourth round of the Trophy.
Meliden 1 Llandudno Albion 5
Meliden could not handle the high pressing and organisation of a Llandudno Albion side that coasted through to the next stage.
Albion had the perfect start after a jumble at the back for the hosts allowed Liam Jones to pounce for a first-minute goal.
Meliden missed chances to get back into the game before after 17 minutes Jordan Kane made it 2-0 from a free kick.
Chris Wright in the home goal pulled off some remarkable stops to deny the visitors further reward before half time.
The second half saw pretty much the same story, although the Miners were more brave on the ball, but Albion remained organised and ruthless, getting themselves a third goal through Adam Hold after 52 minutes.
A comeback seemed to be on for Meliden after Joe Roberts looped the ball into the net to get a goal back, but that was as good as it got as injuries started to play a factor for the home side.
David Maddock and Hold’s second goal completed a 5-1 away victory.
Mold Alexandra 4 FC Queen’s Park 0
Connor Kendrick, Rhys Nash, Tom Edwards and Dan Lloyd all found the target for a Mold side who proved too strong for their Wrexham visitors.
Mynydd Llandegai 2 Bontnewydd 1
Although Bontnewydd led through a Cai Jones goal at the interval, Mynydd Llandegai fought back after the break to win this tie through net-finders from Tomos Williams and Sion Parry.
New Brighton Villa 0 Bodedern Athletic 7
Unstoppable Bodedern made it 10 straight wins with a seven-goal demolition of a New Brighton side which plays at the equivalent level of the Anglesey side in North East Wales.
Boded were in scintillating form, leading 4-0 at half time though Asa Thomas, Jordan Taylor and a Marc Evans double.
In the second half, Thomas added another and Ryan Lees delivered a pair to make it a magnificent seven.
Porthmadog 4 Tywyn Bryncrug 1
A Rhys Alun Williams double helped Porthmadog to an emphatic Trophy triumph at Y Traeth on Friday night.
Dewi Thomas and Jamie McDaid were also on the mark for the tier 3 hosts, Nick Williams responding for Tywyn Bryncrug.
Radnor Valley 2 Llay Welfare 1
Exit time for Llay at Radnor Valley, who progressed thanks to first-half strikes from Ewan Davies and Joe Price.
Liam Hughes hit back on 75 minutes for Llay, who had Jon Taylor red carded in the closing stages.
