Newtown won at Park Hall ? !!!

Newtown won at Park Hall ? !!!

THE NEW SAINTS 0 NEWTOWN 1

A Craig Williams goal after 71 minutes caused the biggest upset in a long time in the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League.
Bernie McNally's men have been leaking goals in recent weeks so this unlikely victory and clean sheet will please the manager no end.
Newtown's last victory at The New Saints came back in December 1997.


BANGOR CITY 1 LLANELLI 2

Bangor failed to capitalise on TNS's shock home defeat. The Citizens took the lead through a Chris Simm strike after 14 minutes but Martin Rose finished an excellent move after half an hour to pull the visitors level. After 81 minutes Luke Bowen pounced to score the crucial goal which gave the Reds a morale boosting victory and left Bangor cursing their missed opportunity.


AFAN LIDO 1 AIRBUS UK 5

Over a hundred Scottish fans witnessed a comfortable victory for the 'Wingmakers' at the Marston's Stadium. Jordan Johnson scored two first half goals. Further first half efforts by Steve Abbott and a Jack Lewis screamer gave the visitors a 4-0 lead at the break.
Although Chris Hartland struck after 6 minutes of the second half, Mike Hayes restored Airbus's four goal advantage in the closing minutes.

CARMARTHEN TOWN 2 Gap CONNAH'S QUAY 4

Carmarthen's recent poor run of form in the league continued at Richmond Park with Gap securing a deserved 3 points.
Mark McGregor lead by example as the player / manager opened the scoring after 34 minutes.
Liam Thomas scored his third goal in five days following his brace against Bryntirion in the Word Cup midweek 2 minutes after the break and Jonathan Hood gave the Old Gold the lead 6 minutes later.
However Ryan Healey - the young man with a bright future ahead of him - gave the visitors parity immediately before Ricky Evans and Jamie Petrie secured the victory for Gap.
To rub salt into Carmarthen wounds - Liam McCreesh was given his marching orders in the closing minutes.

PRESTATYN 2 ABERYSTWYTH 2

Glyndwr Hughes's 104th goal for Aberystwyth secured a valuable point for Tomi Morgan's men at Bastion Gardens.
Ross Stephens had given the home side an early 6th minute lead from the penalty spot before Matty Collins' lovely free kick on the half hour mark drew the Seasiders level for the first time.
Gareth Wilson regained the lead for Neil Gibson's men at the end of the opening period before Hughes headed a late equaliser for Aber.
