Football: Flintshire clubs eliminated from Welsh Cup at quarter final stage

BOTH Flintshire clubs crashed out of the Welsh Cup at the quarter final stage.

Flint Town United lost 2-0 to Barry Town at Cae-y-Castell in front of 453 supporters including a strong and vocal away contingent.

But the Silkmen could not find a way to break down their opponents Barry Town. Matty Harvey had a chance to give the hosts an early lead but he failed to connect.

Barry took the lead with their first effort on goal, a free kick on the edge of the box from Ryan Evans on 27 minutes.

In the second half there was one shot, on 54 minutes, when Nathan Peate miskicked allowing Evans to score again.

Airbus UK Broughton also bowed with a narrow 1-0 defeat against Bangor.

Former Chester FC striker Chris Simm bagged his 20th goal of the season despite Airbus’ tough approach.

The Wingmakers almost had a nightmare start when defender Steve Tomassen almost sliced into his own net after just three minutes.

Andy Preece’s men fought hard before and after Simm’s 23rd-minute strike, but Nev Powell’s side refused to yield.

Tom Field came closest to equalising for Airbus, but his 25-yard effort hit the post.
