FAW Welsh Cup Round 2
Abertillery Bluebirds 4 Llanidloes Town 3
Admission (inc. 16-page programme) 3 Attendance h/c 97

Another soaking wet Saturday morning in South Wales and with snow falling further north in the Principality it seemed like a day for staying local and finding something definitely on. This one certainly fitted the bill, and with it being a 'south' v 'mid' encounter and step 4 against the clear leaders of a step 3 league, on paper it looked attractive too. It didn't disappoint either with the home side never going behind against the visitors who were probably technically superior.

Bluebirds led 1-0 and 2-1 before going in 2-2 at half time. It became clear as the second half progressed that the next goal would be key, and the home side got it thanks to a wicked deflection. Before Llanidloes could get their third equaliser of the day the home side had scored again, and though the mid Wales side scored from the penalty spot in the last minute, it was too late.

This is the last season that Bluebirds will be at the Sports Centre 3G, next season returning to their picturesque base at Cwm Nantygroes. It is doubtful however that today's match would have survived if had been scheduled for there.

Good company for the afternoon in the person of Les from Caldicot, and there were a few other familiar faces among the attendance which included a good sized contingent who had apparently dug themselves out of the mid-Wales snow to get there.
