THE Welsh Cup dream came to an end for Llanuwchllyn – but they gave Buckley Town a fright.

Playing at home to a side from the division above them, Llanuwchllyn were determined to make this a day to remember.

Captain Garmon Hafal gave the hosts the lead after 41 minutes, but Buckley responded before the break.

Josh Dunroe slotted in the equaliser, before Aled Bellis set up Callum Humphries for the decisive strike midway through the second period.

But neighbours Bala Town’s Welsh Cup adventure continued following a 1-0 win at Aberystwyth Town.

Iwan Roberts scored the only goal in the closing stages of the game to give the Lakesiders victory in this all-Cymru Premier clash.

The same fixture takes place on Friday in the league (8pm).

Elsewhere it was to be a quiet weekend for Denbigh Town and Ruthin Town, who both had no game.

But their home grounds were in use last week, staging matches in the Victory Shield.

Denbigh’s Central Park ground hosted two Wales matches against Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in the under-16s tournament, attracting a total of more than 1,200 spectators.

A Denbigh Town spokesperson said: “Denbigh Town Football Club were delighted with the support from the three nations who played at Central Park and would like to thank the FAW, FAI and IFA for their efforts in ensuring a pair of competitive and enjoyable matches.

“We would also like to thank the incredible work out the club’s volunteers who without their hard work and dedication we would be unable to host these matches.”

Denbigh make the short trip to Prestatyn Town on Friday, while Ruthin host Llandudno (both 7.30pm).
