* Aberystwyth Town were drawn to play Llanfyllin in the First Round. That was stated in a meeting of the Town club held sometime in September. The match was due to take place at Llanfyllin on Saturday 16th October.
In the 23rd October edition of the Aberystwyth Observer, Aled came across the following report which should by all account, explain that Aberystwyth 'probably' scratched to Llanfyllin.
"Saturday, October the 16th, 1886, will be a day long remembered in the history of North Cardiganshire, and Abersytwyth in particular. A storm of peculiar violence, accompanied by excessively heavy rains, raged the whole of Friday, but as the day advanced and evening and night drew on the wind increased in power and violence, so that it became dangerous for parties to be abroad."
The report later stated that no trains ran on the Saturday, and we can only assume that the team were unable to travel and therefore scratched. Later issues have Aber Town playing regularly but there was no mention of any match with Llanfyllin.
