WORD Cup holders The New Saints have been handed a home tie with Holywell Town of the Huws Gray Alliance in the second round.
And there are some tough draws for some of the other lower-tier clubs in the next stage with Penrhyncoch of the Mid Wales League drawn away to Airbus UK Broughton. The sides last met in the competition three years ago when a Chris Budrys goal saw the Wingmakers through away at Cae Baker.
Caernarfon are rewarded for their victory over Bangor City with a home tie against Bala Town, while Pontypridd Town have a difficult away task at Carmarthen Town, who were given a fright by Briton Ferry Llansawel on Tuesday night before going through 5-4 on penalties.
Welsh League Ton Pentre may fancy their chances at home to Port Talbot Town, while an Alliance side is guaranteed a place in the last eight after Holyhead Hotspur were paired with Denbigh Town, both clubs knocking-out Welsh Premier opposition in the first round.
The draw in full, with ties scheduled to be played on September 29, is:
- Airbus UK v Penrhyncoch
- Caernarfon Town v Bala Town
- Carmarthen Town v Pontypridd Town
- Haverfordwest County v Aberystwyth Town
- Holyhead Hotspur v Denbigh Town
- Prestatyn Town v Gap Connah’s Quay
- The New Saints v Holywell Town
- Ton Pentre v Port Talbot Town
