THE third round of the FAW Trophy gets underway on Saturday (Aug 21) with a number of exciting fixtures to look forward too.

Mumbles Rangers are looking forward to welcoming in form Pontardawe Town to Underhill.

Mike Parkin and Gary Thomas will be looking on with pride this Saturday as both Chairmen of Mumbles Rangers and Pontardawe respectively have reasons to smile in this early part of the season.

Pontardawe Town, who compete in the Ardal South West league, have made an excellent start to their league campaign and are clear favourites at Underhill on Saturday.

However, the Rangers are hoping to match their opponents in this FAW Trophy encounter.

A good crowd is expected at Underhill Park, Mumbles, with a 2pm kick off.

It is one of a number of ties in the southern section of the draw that are taking place this weekend.

On Friday night (Aug 20), Canton Liberal host Cardiff Corinthians while Penydarren BGC take on Abertillery Bluebirds.

Another stand out tie from Saturday sees Pembrokeshire League side Hakin United travel to Garden Village.

The Village also play in the Ardal South West League and have started their season with three wins from three games.

Hakin though will not be fazed by their opponents having knocked out Cwmamman United in the previous round.
