Tomorrow: The Welsh Cup

Barry v Porthcawl Town Athletic

Barry host Porthcawl tomorrow at Jenner Park at 2pm in a Welsh Cup 2nd Round fixture in what is the first ever meeting in any competition between the two clubs.

Barry have had some recent success in the Welsh Cup, being Semi Finalists in 2012-13, and again in 2018-19. We’re also 6 times winners of the competition, having won it in 1954-55, 1993-94, 1996-97, and a famous treble of wins in 2000-01, 2001-02 and 2002-03.

This season also marks the 30th anniversary of the fabulous 1993-94 Welsh Cup campaign which took us all the way to Cup Final glory at the National Stadium in Cardiff, beating much-fancied Cardiff City 2-1 in the process.

We’ve a long way to go to emulate that success, and Porthcawl Town will almost certainly prove stiff opposition for us tomorrow. It’s the magic of the Cup. Anything can happen!
