Some players in the current St Dogmaels squad were not even born when Saints of the Costcutter League lifted the J Emrys Morgan Cup for the only time in their history.

That success was in season 1994-95 and it could prove imprudent to wager against the Teifi Estuary villagers going all the way again this time around.

Jason Williams and Co faced a potentially tricky round two away assignment against Aberaeron Reserves at Square Field, but in the event the Division One runaway leaders turned on the style with some exquisite one-touch football, and but for a hatful of missed opportunities and some stunning stops by the home goalkeeper could have left their opponents at the end of an embarrassing scoreline.

The visitors led 2-0 after the opening 45 minutes, both goals claimed by dangerous front-runner Peter Almond, and after the break Louis Harding and Chris Morgan doubled their side’s advantage before Aeron sprang a late consolation goal but by then it was done and dusted.

Saints followers were initially stunned by social media reports of their favourites going down 4-1 before the true result came through.

Champions Lampeter Town had suffered two defeats at the hands of Llandysul before the Emrys Morgan clash at Llandysul Park, but it was an entirely different story this time as the champs, who have brought back into the side manager Terry Witts and Christian Potter, produced a tremendous work rate to outplay their opponents who were unbeaten in all competitions since September 1.

Llandysul central defender Dean Jones missed a penalty but his side were second best on the day and rather fortunate not to concede further goals.

Gethin Edwards headed the visitors in front after good work by Llyr Jones and Jason Jones and Gethin Hunter doubled the advantage.

As Lampeter showed the type of form that won them the title last term Edwards blasted a 25-yarder into the top corner for his second and Saints’ third goal with the fourth netted by Scott Davies.

Visitors Llanboidy turned in a confident second half performance to reach round three at the expense of Ffostrasol at Troedyrhiw Park.

As the west Carmarthenshire visitors rose to the task Jack Griffiths and all-action striker Bartos Koperski were on target, while super sub Ifan Phillips, normally a centre with Crymych in the oval ball code, came off the bench to grab two goals in the 4-1 win.

Crannog recovered from a midweek 3-1 league defeat at Newcastle Emlyn to spring a 5-2 win over Powys visitors Newcastle while Cardigan Town of the Costcutter slumped to a 5-0 defeat against Padarn United in Aberystwyth.

In the same competition holders Newcastle Emlyn could not make the long journey into Shropshire pay dividends as they went down 4-1 against Trefonen of the Montgomeryshire Amateur League.

On the league front bottom of the pile Bargod Rangers lurched further towards the trapdoor after being thrashed 9-1 by visitors Felinfach at Parc Puw while in a midweek game Crannog lost 3-1 at Newcastle Emlyn.
