THE autumn showers which swept across Powys and the rest of mid Wales has claimed its first victims with a host of football matches postponed throughout the region.

Borth United's Uppingham Park was left underwater on Friday afternoon with tomorrow's Cambrian Tyres Aberystwyth League clash with Tywyn Bryncrug Reserves postponed.

Brecon Corries visit to Abercarn United in the Ardal South East League has also fallen victim to the weather.

Penparcau's Central Wales League clash at home to Aberystwyth University has also been postponed along with Builth Wells Reserves against Bow Street Reserves in the FAW Central Reserve League.


Several matches survived the downpour tonight.

Managerless Llanidloes Town bowed out of the JD Welsh Cup with a 3-1 defeat at home to Gresford Athletic.

Tobu Gallagher-Keenan fired the Wrexham visitors into an interval lead before doubling his tally with 20 minutes remaining and Sam Spridgeon added a third to seal a third round place.

Nathan Williams saw red for Gresford before Jamie Breese snatched a late consolation for the hosts.
