Saturday 22nd February
Newtown’s Latham Park once again proving its value by managing to stage the club’s JD Cymru Premier encounter with Bala.
But it wasn’t the outcome that the Robins hoped for, with former Caersws talisman Chris Venables striking his side’s second goal to secure a 2-1 win.
Newtown rue two soft goals. A good display by the Robins failed to add to their points tally. Sponsors for the day were Newtown AFC President Richard Edwards and friends they awarded the home man of the match award to Alex Fletcher.
Newtown proceed to the next round of the Welsh Cup
Rhyl proved to be formidable advisories as Newtown went one up within two minutes through Nicky Rushton only for Rhyl to equalize with a goal from Thomas Creamer 15 minutes . Rhyl should have ended the first half ahead only for Piskorski to see his chip over advancing keeper Jones pas the upright. Newtown started the second half on top and continued to dominate throught the second half with goals from Ian Sheridan 65 minutes, Craig Williams 74 minutes and George Harry with a run from the half way line to secure victory on 78minute
