Caersws’ progress through The Cup so far has seen a 2-0 victory over Denbigh Town in the first round, which led to a second round tie with Nefyn United on 9th November. The game finished 1-1 at full time, but two extra time goals saw Caersws progress.

The Nomads, along with other Welsh Premier League teams are introduced at the third round phase, with two of all WPL ties being drawn including Carmarthen Town vs Port Talbot Town and Rhyl vs Bangor City.

The last time that we met Caersws at The Recreation Ground saw a Gary O’Toole hat-trick along with goals from Ben Collins, Jamie Petrie and James McIntosh secure a 6-1 victory as The Nomads marched towards the Huws Gray Alliance title. Our record against Caersws, who currently sit fourth in the Huws Gray Alliance is a good one, having only dropped points on two occassions in the past eleven games, one a 0-0 draw, and the other a 1-0 defeat. The other nine games have seen The Nomads score 44 goals – an average of 4.8 goals per game! We’ll be looking for more of the same this time round.

Last season’s Welsh Cup saw The Nomads pick up a dramatic victory over the now-defunct Llanelli AFC. A spirited display by The Nomads saw them recover from a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2. Goals from Craig Moses and Lloyd Grist put Llanelli 2-0 up after just 27 minutes, but a strong second half showing from two Nomads’ youngsters in the shape of Jamie Wynne and Rhys Healey saw a double for Rhys, and a first senior goal for Jamie, accompanied with a strike from Jamie Petrie turn the game on it’s head.

The fourth round saw a similarly dramatic game – if for different circumstances. There was a very good chance that the game wasn’t to go ahead due to heavy snow, but a great effort from both sets of fans saw them turn up at 9am to help clear the Deeside Stadium pitch and allow the game to go ahead. It was however a game that saw Gary O’Toole return to the stadium to haunt The Nomads. During a brief spell away from The Nomads, Gary signed for Bangor and with his first touch after being introduced as a second half substitute, secured a 2-0 victory for The Citizens.

The Nomads will be looking for a slightly better Welsh Cup run this time round – something similar to our 2010/11 campaign, which again saw Bangor City end our hopes, but this time at the semi-final stage as a late Chris Jones strike sent the team from Nantporth through to the final.
