Brecon Corries of the Highadmit Projects South Wales Alliance League host Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Division One outfit Aberbargoed Buds to the Rich Field on Saturday (31 October) hoping that they can spring a surprise on John Lewis’ men, who have former Wales international defender Darcy Blake in their squad.
Blake made his debut for the Buds in a 3-1 win at Ton Pentre last weekend meaning that they will be full of confidence going into the match. Meanwhile, Brecon Corries manager Damien Daniels told FAWTV: “You don’t really understand the size of this Cup, or the prestige of it, until you either win it or get to the latter rounds, or your a club of this size getting this sort of exposure.
“This could be the biggest highlight for some of these players in their careers.”
Brecon Corries also have a former JD Welsh Cup winner amongst their ranks in Paul Keddle, who lifted the trophy with Carmarthen Town in 2007. The former winner is enjoying new challenges in the competition this season and commented: “It’s the first time this club has come this far. It’s all good publicity for this club and it’s what small clubs like us need. There’s not going to be many times that players are going to play in games like this.
