TRIPS to South Wales are becoming the norm during Brymbo's quest for national glory.

Brymbo's reward for a superb eight-wicket triumph over Ammanford on Sunday is a trip to holders Swansea in the semi-finals of this season's Welsh Cup.

It was the bowlers who set up the success, with Ammanford being restricted to 133 for eight from their 35 overs.

Mohamed Nilam Jayman (4-18) impressing with the ball, before Brymbo responded with a winning 134 for two with time to spare.

Chris Taylor (57 not out) and James Claybrook (25) compiled an opening stand of 82 to settle any visiting nerves.

Brymbo chairman Nigel Roberts said: "The lads bowling did an excellent job to keep it down to 133.

"It was a heck of a good effort.

"The batters also did well not losing wickets."

The date of the semi-final will be confirmed after discussions between the clubs.

Swansea lifted the cup last summer thanks to a seven-wicket success versus Port Talbot Town.

This season's other last-four clash sees Colwyn Bay hosting Cardiff.
