Welsh Premier & non-League round-up

WPL

JD Welsh Premier League

Friday, 11 August

Bala 3-0 Newtown: Chris Venables and Evan Horwood put Welsh Cup holders Bala 2-0 up by the break and Mike Hayes added to Newtown's misery in the second half.

Bangor City 5-2 The New Saints: Brayden Shaw and Gary Taylor-Fletcher each scored a brace as much-strengthened Bangor City proved too strong and sent a signal to reigning champions The New Saints.

Connell Rawlinson and Jamie Mullan levelled in turn after Shaw and Taylor-Fletcher put the hosts ahead.

The duo struck again after the break and Anderson Cayola finished off the hosts' work from the penalty spot late on.

Prestatyn Town 0-4 Gap Connah's Quay: Michael Wilde scored a brace and Callum Morris and Mark Pearson also hit the back of the net as the visitors comfortably began their campaign with a win at newly-promoted Prestatyn.

Saturday 12 August

Cefn Druids 0-3 Cardiff Met: Chris Baker struck twice, with Eliot Evans adding a late third goal, as Cardiff Met eased to victory over hosts Cefn Druids.

Llandudno 3-0 Carmarthen Town: Llandudno left it late to seal victory over Carmarthen Town. Sam Hart put the home side ahead on 74 minutes, but the result was still in the balance until sub Shaun Cavanagh doubled their lead on 89 minutes. A second Hart goal, from the penalty spot, deep in time added on gave the scoreline a lop-sided look.

Sunday 13 August

Barry Town 1-1 Aberystwyth Town: Ryan Newman scored Barry's first goal following their return to Welsh football's top flight, but their celebrations were denied by Jonny Spittle's late equaliser.
