BERRIEW marked the opening of their new stand with a penalty shoot out victory over Builth Wells in the second round of the Spar Mid Wales League Cup.

The new 100 seater stand was part funded through the Football Association of Wales (FAW) ground improvement scheme and will be sponsored by Ian and Gail Williams of Newtown’s Elephant and Castle Hotel.

Goals from Will Gittins and Jake Mann for the hosts were cancelled out by Jonny Samuel and Joel Metcalf in a 2-2 draw before the Rhiewsiders held their nerve to win the shoot-out 4-3.

Meanwhile Llanfair United made light work of Churchstoke with Toby Evans starring with a brace in a 5-0 win at Mount Field.

Further goals from Josh Astley, Phil Hughes and Ashley Davies ensured a comfortable afternoon for Rhys Stephens’ men.

Radnor Valley proved too good for Llanidloes Town as Paul Morgan’s side ran out 3-0 winners at Victoria Avenue.

The match was goalless until the hour when Liam Jones curled home a free-kick from the edge of the area to give Valley the lead.

Five minutes later a poor clearance from Daffodils goalkeeper Aaron Warwick fell kindly for Joey Price to blast home from 30 yards.

Valley settled the contest with 15 minutes remaining with Elliot Morris linking with brother Lewis Morris to release Callum Matthews to fire home.

Carno hit back to prevail 2-1 winners at Llanrhaeadr who led through Iwan Matthews before Peter Rees and Scott Williams replies won the day for the Greens.

Elsewhere Bow Street were made to sweat for a 2-1 win at Abermule with goals from Tomos Williams and Llion Jenkins cancelling a Steff Rowlands reply.

The final tie between Welshpool Town and Brecon Northcote was abandoned midway through the first-half due to a serious injury to Stags player Luke Bowen.

Bowen was airlifted to Shrewsbury hospital by Wales Air Ambulance after being treated on the pitch for 40 minutes having sustained a double leg break.

Welshpool led 1-0 through Adam Davies’ early strike before the injury with league secretary Phil Woosnam confirming it likely the result would stand after dialogue with Northcote officials this week.

Northcote manager Anthony Thornley praised the efforts of the medical staff on behalf of the club.
