Hay comfortably overcame Presteigne Reserves 4-1 courtesy of a Rob McNamara hat-trick and Kevin Jones goal to cancel Ioan Hughes opener for the hosts.

Meanwhile Knighton edged a 1-0 win at Llandrindod Wells Reserves courtesy of a Chris Roff header before prevailing 2-1 derby winners at Presteigne last weekend.
