Llanelli AFC finally brought the domination of Bangor City FC over the Welsh Cup by winning it. The victory brought to an end their opponents' superb run in the competition, Bangor having lifted the trophy in each of the last three seasons thanks to a run of 23 Welsh Cup ties without defeat. The side coached by Neville Powell were also been crowned Welsh Premier League champions last week, but they were always on the back foot at Parc Y Scarlets, falling behind to well-placed headers from Rhys Griffiths and Craig Moses in the first half.

Three Hakin United footballers have been named in the West Wales Football Association 18-man squad.

Ewan Findlay, Ashley Bevan and James Stanmore, are the first from Hakin United to gain selection at this level.

They took part in a tough trial at Stebonheath, the ground of Llanelli AFC, and the Vikings trio’s quality displays impressed West Wales manager John Cornelius and assistant David Jones.

The Llanelli home game against Haverfordwest County has been re arranged for Tuesday 14th December. KO 7.30pm. When it comes to ootball betting Paddy Power doesn't offer betting on the Welsh Premier League. If it did, you wouldn't want to bet on the Reds with them mired in the lower half of the table. Still you could have bet on Llanelli on their Europa League game against the Greek side, Paniliakos. Sadly they were knocked out in extra time.

A superb Wyn Thomas, reminiscent of one by Cristiano Ronaldo, free kick thirteen minutes into the first period of extra time proved in the end to be enough to secure the Reds place in the next round of the competition where they will face a tricky away trip to Cymru Alliance side Cefn Druids at the end of January.
