FAW Premier Cup guide
EIGHT sides set-out in search of FAW Premier Cup glory and more than £300,000 in prize money on Tuesday night.
Airbus make their debut in the BBC-sponsored competition, but face a daunting trip to Haverfordwest - the long journey to West Wales will require the Wingmakers to leave at one o'clock only to arrive back in Broughton in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Player/boss Gareth Owen is grateful that the factory, where many of his players work, has re-arranged their shifts, enabling him to field a full-strength squad.
"It's a long, long way to go in midweek but we'll be up for it - it's the first time we've qualified for the competition and none of us want it to be the last," says Owen.
After missing out last season because the lights at their temporary Flint home failed to make the grade, Connah's Quay Nomads face a tough task at home to high-flying Carmarthen, who have only lost out in the last two seasons through extra-time defeats at the hands of Cardiff and Swansea.
Last season's destroyer was the Bluebirds' Curtis MacDonald with two late goals, but he now finds himself wearing Old Gold for the visit to Deeside.
Porthmadog progressed to the last eight a year ago with victories over Aberystwyth and Llanelli, and face one of last term's semi-finalists, Port Talbot, who recall midfielder Dylan Blain for their visit to The Traeth.
Port boss Clayton Blackmore is looking for an improvement on Saturday's home defeat to NEWI Cefn Druids: "We are a small town club, with limited funding resources, and the cash rewards from this cup would be really appreciated. The players must recognise that situation," he says.
Bangor City will hope to put two disappointing Welsh Premier results behind them and avenge last week's 2-1 defeat at Park Avenue when they host Aberystwyth Town at Farrar Road.
Clubs reaching the second round are guaranteed £7,500 when the remaining qualifiers from the Welsh Premier enter the competition, with the exception of cup holders The New Saints, who are seeded into the quarter-finals with the Welsh 'big three'.
