Swansea City have been handed an away tie against Newport County in the Quarter final of the FAW Premier cup.

The draw was made today and has offered a possible mouth watering Semi Final tie.

Should Swansea City win against Newport County and Cardiff City beat Welshpool Town; both sides will meet at Ninian Park in the Semi final stage.

The last time Newport and Swansea faced each other in competitive competition was marred with controversy after a fan threw a coin at 4th official Alan Sheffield .

The incident left the Walsall official needing an operation to repair a split artery.

The game concerned was brought further into disrepute when County manager Peter Beadle was sent to the stands after arguing with referee Tony Bates.

The club will receive £15,000 even if they are unsuccessful in reaching the semi final.

the eventual winners of the Welsh club football’s show-piece tournament will net £100,000.

There is no further information to when the tie will be played.
