In the second semi-final The New Saints will play Cardiff Met or Llandudno, whose scheduled match was postponed because of bad weather.

Both semis will be played on Sunday, March 10.

Dan Griffiths (4), Sion Spence (2), Dan Martin, Laurence Wootton, Niazana Mayembe and Kieron Evans were the scorers for Cardiff, who led by four goals at half-time.

Wotton also hit a post, while Llanelli had Jamie Owen sent off after 68 minutes for a second bookable offence.

Swansea City booked their place in the semi-finals with a 5-1 win against Merthyr Town at Landore.

Young Swans, looking to win the trophy for a 10th year in succession, found the net through Owen Evans, Mason Jones-Thomas, Jayden Reid, Bradley Gibbings and an own goal, despite losing Dan Williams to a red card in the second half.

The final score of 5-1 was harsh on Merthyr Town, who played far better than that suggests.

Cavan Williams scored their goal and hit the bar from a free-kick.

The New Saints won 5-1 against Cefn Druids, who had their goalkeeper sent off inside the opening 10 minutes. James Parry and Ethan Short scored to put TNS two goals ahead at half-time, while Parry, Owen Jones and Tai Jones completed the scoring.

Druids scored a late consolation via a deflection.
