The Spar League Cup takes centre stage this weekend and the area’s top clubs from the two divisions are all involved.
The tie of the round will see Division Two’s Llanfair United take on Dyffryn Banw, from Division One, with the manager in buoyant mood.
“It is always a big game between us when form and quality of players goes out of the window, it’s all about who wants it more,” said Llanfair boss Daryl Griffiths. “Banw are a quality side and played us off the park at the start of the season 3-0 in a cup final so we would really like to improve on that come Saturday.”

Llanfair slipped to a defeat at Montgomery last week and the boss believes Clive McNamee’s men are now favourites for the title. He still believes that Llanfair are a match for anyone on their day but admits to being interested in one or two signings to generate more competition for places.
Montgomery will again enjoy home comforts when Division One Newbridge visit and while McNamee maintains that the league remains a priority, he still fancies a good run in the cup.
“We are very much looking forward to the game as it gives us another chance to size up Leagie One opposition,” he said: We hope ground advantage will be of some significance and feel confident we can go through. We are on an unbeaten roll of 10 games and the lads are looking forward to the tie. Geraint Windsor is set to make his first start for the club whilst Shane Kirkham slotted straight in last week and has given the club a real boost with his timely return.”
Berriew still sit atop Division One but their focus returns to a competition they won two seasons back.
Manager Neil Pryce may start himself on the troubled left side at in-form Llanfyllin as the Rhiewsiders target a league and cup double.
“They’ve won their last two league games by convincing scorelines so it will be a tough game for us,” said Pryce. “I have the same squad to choose from and when everyone is available we have squad of 18 who I'm very happy with, so unlikely to be any new arrivals.”
Waterloo Rovers will travel to Bont while Meifod face a tough match with Bow Street. Llanrhaeadr take on Kerry in what could be one of the most intriguing ties of the round and Abermule hope to hand Barry Bellis a debut when they host Llandrindod Wells. Carno go to Presteigne.
Huws Gray Alliance
There’s a big weekend of action from the Huws Gray Alliance. New signing Matty Davies could well make his long awaited debut for Caersws since his November switch from Penparcau. Chris Herbert has 21 players to choose from when Technogroup Welshpool go to Llangefni and Guilsfield have a late check on midfielder John Harris before naming their squad to play Flint
