More shocks at stake in FAW Trophy third round draw

We already know there’ll be a new name on this season’s FAW Trophy after holders Cefn Albion suffered a shock exit last Friday night.

Their conquerers, Lex XI of the Welsh National League, have been drawn at home to Menai Bridge Tigers as East meets West for the third round.

The reigning Gwynedd League champions claimed a Welsh Alliance scalp after beating Mynydd Llandegai 3-2 on Saturday – with two goals from Callum Davidson.

Meanwhile, high flyers Bangor 1876 dispatched Pwllheli 3-1 as they retained their unbeaten record in all competition.

Jos Lloyd’s brace earned the fan-owned Treborth upstarts a visit to Gwydir Park – and another potential upset – against Llanrwst United.

Nefyn United could also do the double over fourth tier clubs, after their second round victory at Penmaenmawr Phoenix. Off the back of a 3-2 win at Cae Sling, they’ve been drawn at home to pacesetters Llannefydd.

Holyhead Hotspur, who needed extra time to see off Aberffraw 2-1, will visit a Penrhyndeudraeth side who beat Dolgellau Athletic 4-2 – Jack Jones scored twice for the Cockles, including a penalty.

The other Anglesey derby of the second round saw two goals for Bodedern Athletic’s key marksman, Dean Redmond, in their 3-0 win over Glantraeth.

Their reward is a clash with Llanberis, who were taken all the way by another Gwynedd League club, Waunfawr, following a 2-2 draw. The Darians eventually triumphed 4-3 on penalties.

The other all-North West clash in the third round will see Llanuwchllyn play host to Llanrug United, who were 4-2 winners at Y Felinheli on Saturday, with two goals coming from Alan Mark Owen.
