BERRIEW travel to Newtown on Saturday with the Rhiewsiders bidding to complete a JD Welsh Cup upset.

The Ardal North East League make the short trip down the A483 with the aim of bridging a two tier divide against a Newtown side which represented Wales in Europe during the summer.

Manager David Jones accepted his side would be underdogs.

He said: "All the players, staff and committee are looking forward to Saturday’s game.

"It is a fantastic occasion for the club to have the opportunity to play in a competitive fixture against a JD Cymru Premier side, made even better by the fact it’s a local derby against Newtown and in front of hopefully a large crowd.

"Newtown obviously go into the game as overwhelming favourites, however I am confident that the lads will give a good account of themselves and make things as difficult as possible for Newtown."

New signing Ed Baker is unavailable following his switch from JD Cymru North side Guilsfield.

However Berriew will not be the attempting the biggest giant killing with MMP-NL Mid Wales League East side Brecon Corries travelling to JD Cymru Premier side Haverfordwest County.

The Corries will look to complete one of the greatest upsets in Welsh Cup history with three tiers dividing the premier league hosts and fourth division Corries.

JD Welsh Cup, second round (mid Wales clubs only) (2pm): Haverfordwest County v Brecon Corries; Penrhyncoch v Ynyshir Albions; Aberystwyth Town v Aber Valley; Llandudno Albion v Guilsfield; Llanrhaeadr v Saltney Town; TNS v Llanwrst Utd; Llanidloes Town v Bangor City; Newtown v Berriew
