CHALK ENDS NINE YEAR WAIT
CAERNARFON reversed the result of their recent league defeat at the hands of Caersws and picked up a welcome cheque for £6,000 in the process, as they marched into the second round of the FAW Premier Cup.
Despite sharing plenty of possession, the mid-Wales Bluebirds were frustrated by the home side's physical tactics, which saw six Canaries booked.
The crucial goal came in first-half stoppage time from Martyn Chalk and, despite losing Craig Hogg to a red card from referee Andy Richards, the Oval side held on for a memorable win - their first over Caersws for nine years.
At Victoria Road, Port Talbot won a thrilling encounter after extra-time to move into the next round at the expense of Cwmbran Town.
The Steelmen raced into an early lead through Russell Wigley and Tony Wallis the doubled the advantage after 27 minutes.
But Cwmbran pulled a goal back before the break from Kristian Diamond and Kaid Mohamed notched another to ensure the game would go into an extra period.
Both sides went into the final 30 minutes with 10 men after the dismissal of Wallis and Dimond, but Carl Shaw came off the substitute's bench to notch the winner for Talbot in the 99th minute.
