It was an exciting weekend in the Genero Adran Trophy, with five teams booking their place in the quarter-finals.

The New Saints of the Adran Premier showed their quality, securing an impressive 4-0 victory over Connah’s Quay Nomads at Park Hall. 

Andy Williams’ side took the lead through Lexie Harrison’s emphatic penalty, before Lucie Platt added a second before the break. 

With Caitlin Chapman and Georgia Griffiths both getting on the scoresheet in the second period, the Saints finished 2021 in style. 

Wrexham faced a difficult task as they welcomed back-to-back Genero Adran Premier champions Swansea City. 

The Swans were rampant from the off, with Chloe Chivers’ goal and Kathryn Carter’s brace putting them in the ascendancy. 

There was no let-up from Chris Church’s side, as Laura Davies and Ellie Lake netted, before Carter added her third to secure a resounding 6-0 victory. 

An intriguing battle unfolded between Caldicot Town and Barry Town United, with the latter recording a 3-1 win. 

Holly Jenkins put the visitors in front, but Caldicot responded admirably, with Lucy McDonough finding the equaliser. 

Having been pushed all the way, Sian Rees’ late brace was enough to see Barry through to the next round. 

It has been a brilliant few weeks for Aberystwyth after securing their place in the Genero Adran Premier top four. 

As attention turned to the Genero Adran Trophy, the Seasiders’ high standards did not drop, as they secured a 2-0 victory over Briton Ferry Llansawel. 

Goals either side of the break from Hannah Pusey and Carys Davies saw Gavin Allen’s side impress once more. 

There was a tight affair at Victoria Road between Port Talbot and Cascade. 

Despite the Adran South high-flyers pushing the Steelwomenall the way, Victoria Beddows’ late strike was enough to see Port Talbot claim a 1-0 victory. 

Although the Genero Adran North and Genero Adran South sides battled well, five Genero Adran Premier sides booked their place in the hat for the next round.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the competition will be shared on the Genero Adran Leagues' Twitter and Instagram cat 6pm on Monday 20th December.
