Welsh Premier League & non-league round up

WPL

JD Welsh Premier League

Thursday, 8 February

Bala Town 1-0 Cefn Druids: Bala Town moved up to second place in the Welsh Premier League courtesy of a last-minute Mike Haynes goal.

The win saw the Lakesiders leapfrog both Bangor City and Connah's Quay Nomads in the table.

Cefn Druids dominated for long spells and will feel unlucky not to have come away from Maes Tegid with at least a point.

Druids remain in sixth place, just two points ahead of Newtown and Barry Town United, both of whom play on Saturday.

Friday, 9 February

The New Saints 3-0 Bangor City: The New Saints extended their lead at the top of the Welsh Premier League with a comfortable wino over challengers Bangor City.

Bangor started Phase Two of their season with a convincing 3-0 win over Cardiff Metropolitan, but had no response to Aeron Edwards' brace and Ryan Brobbel's effort.

Aberystwyth Town 3-1 Llandudno FC: Aberystwyth boosted their survival chances as they saw off fellow strugglers Llandudno.

John Owen and Declan Walker, from the penalty spot, put the hosts ahead before Marc Williams replied. Craig Hobson struck in added time to ensure the home win.

Saturday, 10 February

Prestatyn Town P-P Barry Town United

Carmarthen Town 3-2 Newtown: Carmarthen Town made it three straight wins despite a spirited comeback from visitors Newtown.

Carmarthen lead 3-0 at halftime, two goals from Liam Thomas and a long-range effort from Aidan O'Kelly giving the hosts the best possible start.

However, with 20 minutes to go, Nick Rushton pulled one back for the Robins and Kieran Mills-Evans scored to set up a frantic finish at Richmond Park.

Despite all their efforts, Newtown could not find the equaliser, and Carmarthen's resurgence continues.

Sunday, 11 February

Cardiff Metropolitan 0-2 Connah's Quay Nomads: Connah's Quay Nomads moved up to second with a convincing 2-0 win over the Students at Cyncoed Campus.

Goals from Michael Bakare and Jay Owen were enough for the visitors, who were rarely threatened until the final stages of the game.

Adam Roscrow of the Students was shown red late on by referee Richard Harrington and despite several dangerous deliveries into the Nomads' area, the home side failed to convert.

Cardiff Metropolitan remain in fifth, but now find themselves seven points behind second-place Nomads.
