Welsh Premier & non-League round-up


Dafabet Welsh Premier League

Friday, 23 October

Rhyl 1-0 Airbus UK Broughton: Gareth Owen's Rhyl moved off the bottom of the table with their second win in succession. Connor Bell's 12th minute goal was enough to secure all three points against Airbus at the Belle Vue.

Aberystwyth Town 0-4 The New Saints: Champions The New Saints maintained their unbeaten record to stay top of the table with victory at third-placed Aberystwyth. Scott Quigley scored twice for the visitors but was sent-off late in the game following and off the ball incident. Alex Darlington and Adrian Cieslewicz also scored for Craig Harrison's team.

Haverfordwest County 0-2 Bala Town: Mark Connolly scored twice in five first-half minutes to maintain Bala's unbeaten away record this season. The win keeps them within five points of leaders TNS.

MBi Llandudno 1-2 Carmarthen Town: Carmarthen ended Llandudno's six-match unbeaten record in an ill-tempered match that saw both teams end with 10 men. Llandudno's Gareth Evans was the first to see red for a high challenge, but Dwaine Bailey followed him to the changing rooms after receiving a second yellow for shoving Evans in the face.

Carmarthen had missed a penalty before the red cards, but they took the lead shortly after the break when Liam Thomas bundled the ball in. Sacha Walters found the top corner to double the lead and the visitors held on despite an 85th-minute penalty from James Joyce that gave the home team late impetus.

Newtown AFC 0-3 Bangor City: A Damian Allen goal in the first minute set Bangor on their way to a comprehensive win at Newtown, who have won only once at home this season. Porya Ahmadi and Adam Cummins scored either side of half-time to secure the points.

Sunday, 25 October

Port Talbot Town 0-4 Gap Connah's Quay: Jay Catton and Neil Ebbrell were in caretaker charge of Connah's Quay, who sacked manager Allan Bickerstaff following a disappointing start to the season, and saw their new charges jump of the bottom of the table with a thumping victory over fellow strugglers Port Talbot, who they now trail by a point. Nick Rushton, Sean Miller, and Ashley Ruane - twice including a penalty - were on target for the visitors.
