Felinheli are through to the second qualifying round of the Welsh Cup after a comfortable win at Parc Dwyfor.

The visitors from tier 3 Ardal North West would have been favourites to overcome tier 5 opponents, but nothing is ever certain in cup competitions.

Felin took the lead in the ninth minute with a very early contender for goal of the season.

Gruff John arrowed a shot in via the left from what looked like an impossible angle with the ball ending up in the right hand top corner.

Just before the half-hour mark, Rhys Parry gave the early domination of Y Felinheli a more deserving look score-wise.

Midway through the second period captain Aled Griffiths scrambled the ball home from close range to make it 3-0 to the all-reds.

And two minutes later, following the Llanystumdwy’s keeper’s clumsy trip on Gruff John in the box, Euron Davies’ side had a chance to go four-up.

Gruff John obliged from the penalty spot with his second goal of the tie.

With the game in the bag for Y Felinheli, Llanystumdwy substitute Rhodri Wyn Jones notched a consolation late on following a scramble in the box.
