Matthew Gilsenan (2) and Scott Nelson shared the goals for the away side, Andrew Swarbrick and Joe Matthews responding for Ruabon, who led 2-1 at the break.

Saltney Ferry 4 FC United of Wrexham 1
Josh Fennell, Alfie Gilmartin and Dean Disley (2) put Ferry 3-0 to the good before Daniel Riley pulled one back for the away side.
