Coach Anthony Wright: “We’re looking forward to competing in the second round, especially in this new competition.

“The boys are well up for it, and we’ve said that we’d like to go as far as we can and show our quality against these senior teams.”

Striker Iwan Morgan: “This a cup we’d love to win, and I think we showed what we can do against Carmarthen.

“We’ve never come up against Caerau Ely before, so it’ll be a big test, and they’ll also be up for going as far in the competition as they can.”
