Wales round-up: Llansantffraid back in charge

TNS Llansantffraid FC moved three points clear of Barry Town AFC with victory over Caersws FC.

TNS Llansantffraid FC moved three points clear of second-placed Barry Town AFC at the top of the League of Wales after a narrow 2-1 home win against Caersws FC on Saturday.

Evans opener
Barry had drawn level with their title rivals following a 2-0 win at Connah's Quay Nomads FC on Friday evening, but Llansantffraid edged ahead once more thanks to a hard-fought victory at Latham Park. Steve Evans fired the hosts ahead in the 33rd minute before midfield player Gary Brabin added a second four minutes after the restart. Sean Jehu pulled one back for the visitors on 65 minutes but the leaders held on to claim all three points.

Games in hand
Scott Morgan gave Barry a ninth-minute lead against Connah's Quay at the Halfway Ground before Gary Lloyd doubled his side's advantage with a 57th-minute penalty. Barry now have 41 points from 18 matches, while Llansantffraid have 44 points from only 16 games.

Aberystwyth march on
Fourth-placed Aberystwyth Town FC kept the heat on third-placed Bangor City FC with a convincing 3-0 win at Caernarfon Town FC. Goals from Anthony Wright (32), Gary Finlay (48) and Matthew Duckett (59) moved the visitors to within a point of Bangor, who ground out a goalless draw at Cwmbran Town FC.

Five-star Rhyl
Rhyl FC chalked up a crushing 5-1 win at struggling Haverfordwest County AFC. Mike Jackson (22), Chris McGinn (38), Mark Powell (62), Andy Moran (66) and Lee Atherton (72) all got on the scoresheet, with Rhys Griffiths scoring a consolation for the hosts.

Wilson double
Paul Wilson scored twice as Oswestry Town FC moved away from the struggling pack with a 3-1 win at Newtown AFC. Wilson struck in the eighth and 23rd minutes before Justin Wickham pulled one back midway through the half. But the Shropshire outfit wrapped up the points in the 52nd minute thanks to Sean Hazelden's own goal.

Llanelli bottom
Elsewhere, Llanelli FC remain rooted to the bottom after a 3-1 home defeat to Afan Lido FC and Ben Kinsey (46) and Stuart Loughnane (53) were on song as Welshpool Town AFC defeated Flexys Cefn Druids AFC 2-0.
