Wales round-up: Llansantffraid back on top

TNS Llansantffraid moved top of the table on goal difference with a 6-0 win at Afan Lido FC.

TNS Llansantffraid took advantage of Barry Town AFC’s involvement in the Welsh Cup to move top of the League of Wales on goal difference.

Total command
Llansantffraid were comfortable 6-0 winners at Afan Lido FC, and are now level with Barry on 55 points but have two games in hand. Ken McKenna’s side were always in complete control, and took the lead after 15 minutes when Afan Lido’s Phil Holmes scored an own goal. 

First-half goals
Gary Brabin added another, before Mike Wilde scored two goals in quick succession and Nicky Ward made it 5-0 before half-time. Ward later completed a resounding win with Llansantffraid’s sixth goal.

Unlikely comeback
In the only other league fixture of the weekend, Llanelli FC drew 3-3 with Caernarfon FC. The visitors led 3-0 at half-time, as goals from Luke Campbell, Leigh Williams and Chris Moores seemed to have sealed an comfortable win for Caernarfon. However, Paul Fowler pulled a goal back for Llanelli early in the second period, and late goals from Anthony Wright and Carl Mainwaring rescued an unlikely point for the home side.

Cup action
In the fourth round of the cup, holders Barry defeated Pontardawe Town FC 4-1, while last season’s beaten finalists Bangor City FC enjoyed a 3-0 victory against Caersws FC. Meanwhile, Connah's Quay Nomads FC won 3-1 against Llandudno FC, Rhyl FC won 1-0 against UWIC Inter Cardiff AFC and Cwmbran Town FC at Carmarthen Town AFC by the same score.

Flexys felled
However, Flexys Cefn Druids AFC were defeated by lower-league opposition, losing 2-1 at Ton Pentre AFC after extra time, while Aberystwyth Town FC won an exciting game against Port Talbot Town FC 3-2.
