Thirteen teams to contest two cups
Thirteen teams will take part in Presteigne St Andrews two cup competitions for the 2009-10 season with four clubs contesting the senior Otway Cup, while nine will harbour hopes of winning the junior Alfred Sparey Cup.
The draw for both competitions was made at the committee meeting on Wednesday 30 September and the Otway Cup semi-finals will see another meeting between Presteigne St Andrews and Hay St Marys.
The holders, Newbridge, will play Leominster Town with both semi-finals due to be played in either March or early April, with the final being staged in May. The dates will be confirmed when the picture is clearer with regard to the league fixtures of competing clubs.
CP Llanandras will make their debut in the Sparey Cup with a first-round tie against Leominster Reserves with the winners then hosting Shobdon in the quarter-finals.
Presteigne Reserves were also drawn at home in their quarter-final tie – they will host Radnor Valley. The holders, Talgarth Town – although they were known as Gwernyfed when lifting the cup last May – will open their defence with a home tie against Rhosgoch Rangers.
