TNS and cross-border rivals Guilsfield will go head-to-head in the quarter-finals of the JD Welsh Cup.

The JD Cymru Premier leaders will welcome the ambitious JD Cymru North side to Park Hall on the weekend of February 18/19 next year.

The tie is one of several outstanding clashes in the last eight which sees three second tier clubs travel to top flight opposition.

Elsewhere Colwyn Bay travel to Connah's Quay Nomads and Taffs Wells make the trip to Penybont.

Meanwhile Bala Town entertain Aberystwyth Town in the only all JD Cymru Premier encounter.

The Saints go into the tie as massive favourites having won the cup seven times with the last coming in 2019.

Manager Anthony Limbrick will be aiming to make the cup his first silverware at the Park Hall helm.

However the Saints can expect a tough test against the villagers who are managed by Oswestry-based Nathan Leonard and includes a large contingent of Shropshire-based players.

Leading the cast will be TNS' all-time leading goalscorer Greg Draper who made the move to Guilsfield in the summer and will now be challenged with leading the Guils line.

The match will represent Draper's first competitive return to his former stamping ground.

The Guils have also proven themselves to be capable of challenging the best this season with a strong start to the league as well as a resolute cup run.

Leonard’s side were 2-1 victors away at Swansea University this past weekend, and have also recorded wins against Dinas Powys and Llandudno Albion in previous rounds.

Guilsfield spokesman Martin Roberts said: "Obviously we were hoping for a home draw to give us a fighting chance.

"We've travelled up and down Wales to reach this stage and the reward of being drawn away to The New Saints is a daunting prospect.

"However, the players will love the challenge and we will give it our best shot."
