Welsh Premier & non-league round-up


JD Welsh Premier League

Friday, 25 August

Bangor City 1-0 Prestatyn Town: Danny Holmes gave Bangor their second win of the season with his first-half effort. Having started their season with a memorable win over The New Saints and then a defeat against Cardiff Met, Bangor hosted a Prestatyn side who recovered from an opening 4-0 loss to Connah's Quay by beating Barry Town United.

Prestatyn's James Stead was sent off for deliberate handball midway through the second period.

Barry Town United 0-1 The New Saints: Wes Fletcher denied newly promoted Barry their first win of the season as reigning champions The New Saints went home victorious. The visitors had recovered from their shock 5-2 defeat to Bangor on the opening weekend with a comfortable win over Bala Town last time out.

Cefn Druids 2-0 Aberystwyth Town: Cefn Druids had Michael Pritchard and an own goal by Declan Carroll to thank for their first victory of the campaign, leaving opponents Aberystwyth Town winless. Both teams had a draw and a defeat going into this encounter.

Bala Town 2-1 Cardiff Met: Bala halted the Students' progress at Maes Tegid. The Lakesiders went ahead through Nathan Burke, before the in-form Adam Roscrow scored an equaliser just before the hour. However, Chris Venables won it with five minutes remaining, scoring the winner with a rebound from his own penalty, past the unlucky Will Fuller.

Llandudno 1-0 Connah's Quay: This top-of-the-table clash saw leaders Llandudno maintain their 100% record at the expense of Connah's Quay Nomads. The Seasiders and The Nomads battled hard on a hot day at Maesdu Park but struggled at times to find their rhythm in the fixture before Toby Jones' 70th minute winner for the hosts. It might have been more comfortable, but Sam Hart missed a first half penalty in an incident that saw Mike Pearson sent off.

Newtown 4-1 Carmarthen Town: Carmarthen Town's unwelcome 100% losing record continued as Newtown recorded a first win of the season at Latham Park. Lewis Harling put the visitors on six minutes, but the hosts roared back thanks to goals from Jamie Price, Neil Mitchell, Nick Rushton and Jamie Reed, scoring twice either side of the interval.
