Wales round-up: Rain disrupts weekend programme

Only one game was played all weekend as heavy rain meant most scheduled fixtures were postponed.

There was no change at the top of the League of Wales after torrential rain led to the postponement of the scheduled games between Newtown AFC and Haverfordwest County AFC and TNS Llansantffraid FC and Carmarthen Town AFC.
 
Single-goal success
The reduced programme was due to the involvement of seven top-flight clubs in the Welsh Cup quarter-finals. However, the rain again caused havoc with these fixtures, as Rhyl FC's game with Connah’s Quay Nomads FC was the only tie to escape the weather, with Rhyl moving through to the semi-finals with a 1-0 win.

Matches rained off
Elsewhere, the ties between Aberystwyth Town FC and Barry Town AFC, Bangor City FC and Cwmbran Town FC, and Ton Pentre FC and Oswestry Town FC were all postponed.
