AIRBUS cruised into the third round of the Welsh Cup with a crushing 9-1 demolition of Llay Welfare at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium.

The Welsh National League visitors were simply outclassed all over the pitch by the fluent and clinical Wingmakers who dominated from the second minute when Curtis Strong cut into the box from the left before firing past keeper Kyle Flower.

A Joe Chaplin effort was well saved and Asa Hamilton was denied by an offside flag after netting from a Brady McGilloway cross, but the floodgates opened when a ball over the top found Chaplin who lobbed over the advancing Flower.

Matty McGinn fired a shot into the corner from 25 yards before Lewis Buckley hammered a shot against the crossbar and the ball dropped down over the line. The same player added another just before the break and, although Llay went close from a free-kick just after the break, it was Airbus who scored again when McGinn spotted Flower off his line and looped a 30-yarder into the net.

Nathan Quirk hit the bar and James Hooper was narrowly wide before converting at close range from a Strong cross. A poor back pass caught keeper Dave Roberts in no mans' land and Alister Gibson took advantage to score a consolation goal for the visitors.

But Chaplin added the eighth, Buckley was again denied by the woodwork and a diving Flower save before Quirk rounded off the scoring.
