LLANIDLOES Town strolled to an emphatic 7-2 win at Montgomery Town to book their progress to the fourth round of the Central Wales Cup.

Ashley Owen began the road to a hat-trick with a 14th minute volley after Drew Reynolds headed Gareth Owen’s cross into his path.

Despite Monty levelling through Robbie Hartshorn the Daffodils were firmly in the driving seat as Ed Clarke headed Josh Evans’ cross to restore their advantage before Joe Evans added a third.

The second-half began with Ashley Owen once more on target before Huw Wainwright replied for Montgomery.

However Llanidloes were not to be denied and a strong end to the tie saw Owen complete his hat-trick before Evans added his second of the day and Gareth Owen complete the scoring.

Meanwhile  Carroll marked his debut with a brace as Kerry prevailed 3-1 winners over Forden United at Newtown’s Latham Park in the third round of the Central Wales Cup.
