FOOTBALL history was made across Powys last week.

On Wednesday night Llanrhaeadr lifted the MP Foulkes Montgomeryshire Cup for the first time in their history with a 3-2 final victory over Berriew in Welshpool.

At the same time Bishops Castle Town clinched the Tanners Town Cup with an 8-0 final thrashing of Waterloo Rovers Reserves.

The champagne corks continued to pop with Four Crosses lifting the ER Jenkins Cup with a 3-0 win over Rhayader Town in Llanidloes on Friday while Aberystwyth Town stormed to Central Wales Women’s Cup glory with an 8-0 derby thrashing of Aberystwyth University.

Meanwhile it was the turn of Berriew to etch a new chapter in their history on Saturday when David Jones’ side avenged defeat in the final of the MP Foulkes Montgomeryshire Cup three days earlier by defeating Llanrhaeadr on penalties following a a 3-3 draw in Caersws to be crowned Central Wales Cup winners for the first time.

Builth Wells also enjoyed a weekend to remember with MMP-NL Mid Wales League Cup final victory over Caersws in Rhayader while Penybont United toasted Pip Samuel Electrical Mid Wales League South Cup glory with a final victory over Llanidloes Town Reserves in Builth Wells.

However the weekend limelight belonged to Powys Schools Girls who overcome Rhondda Cynon Taff to be crowned Welsh Schools Girls Under 15s champions.

Powys Schools coach Rhys Stephens said: “The girls have shown they have the talent and commitment this season and thoroughly deserved to win the cup on Saturday.”

Llanrhaeadr manager Marc Griffiths said: “We are delighted to have won the Montgomeryshire Cup for the first time in our history.”

Berriew manager David Jones was equally ecstatic as he became the first ever Berriew manager to drink out of the Central Wales Cup.

“We came back well against a very good Llanrhaeadr side and held our nerve in the shoot-out. I felt we deserved to win it and to lose two cup finals in a week would have been harsh on our lads.”

Bishops Castle Town spokesman Lee Davies hoped the Tanners Town Cup would be joined by the Boys and Boden Montgomeryshire League Cup by the end of the season.

“Of course we missed out on the Emrys Morgan Cup this season but we are entering a side in the Mid Wales U19s League next season so the club is going in the right direction.”

Builth Wells manager Dylan McPhee added: “I’ m so pleased for the players, staff, committee and supporters who have worked so hard this season and winning the league cup was the icing on the cake.

“I felt we deserved it and were the better team.”
